THE old saying “you should never meet your heroes” did not matter for Biggar’s Richard Calveley as he paddled down an Idaho river with Ally McCoist.

Rangers fan Richard was taking part in the Rangers Charity Foundation’s Idaho White Water Rafting Challenge along with Ally, his sons Alexander and Argyll, Charity Foundation manager Connal Cochrane and fellow fan Lynsey Moore.

The eight day trip was not without its trials and tribulations but it was definitely worth it for Richard to spend more than a week with his childhood heroes.
