Football League founder William McGregor's grave has been rededicated.

"As father of the Football League he's effectively the father of all football leagues - the one he founded was the prototype. He ranks alongside Ebenezer Cob Morley who gave the world the name soccer as we know it and also Charles Alcock who created the FA Cup and launched international football - he's up there with those people"

Nice touch that he is Scottish! Well deserved though.

And lets not forget the Scot who took the beautiful game to Brazil!
