Biography:
Newry-born Bob 'Bud' Hamilton started his career with his hometown club before moving to Scotland with Rangers in March 1927. At Ibrox he was a member of their 1929/30 clean-sweep team, winning League Championship, Scottish Cup, Glasgow Cup and Glasgow Merchants & Charity Cup. In addition, Hamilton also played in a further three Scottish Cup Finals (winning two) and claimed three more Championships and Charity Cup winners' medals.

Whilst with Rangers, Hamilton added five Irish caps to the Inter-League honour he had won while with Newry Town. He tasted victory just once, on his debut against Scotland in February 1928.
.
Hamilton left Ibrox in 1933 to sign for English Division Two side, Bradford City. In two seasons at Valley Parade he made just 26 appearances before moving north of the border again to join Third Lanark, and later to Morton.
