Kinning Park is a southern suburb of Glasgow, Scotland. It was a separate police burgh between 1871 and 1905 before being absorbed by the city. In 1897 it had a population of 14,326. A separate police burgh founded in 1871, it became part of Glasgow in 1905, it was the smallest such burgh in Scotland at just 108 acres. During its 34-year existence, the burgh had its own council, coat of arms, town hall, council chambers, fire brigade, police force, police court. Govan Burgh to the west survived longer, from 1864-1912, before it too was annexed by the City of Glasgow; the inaugural council in 1871 was one of the first examples of working class representation in Scotland with 5 "working men" candidates being elected to the 12 member council under the guidance of Andrew Boa, an activist who served on the Glasgow Trades Council. This was well before the formation of the Scottish Labour Party in 1888 by Keir Hardie and Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham. During the area's time as an independent burgh, there were nine Provosts of Kinning Park: Alexander Abercrombie Thomas Dick William Muir George Lindsay James Whyte John Campbell Alexander Mitchell William Gray Thomas McMillan More political activity in the district has received national publicity in relation to the Glasgow headquarters of the Scottish Socialist Party in Stanley Street which occupies a site adjacent to the former Kinning Park Burgh Chambers.
This SSP building was the scene of the Executive Committee Emergency Meeting on 9 November 2004, which led to disagreement between prominent Scottish politician Tommy Sheridan and many of his committee colleagues. The minutes of the meeting were disputed and they became a key point of discussion in the defamation case which Sheridan brought against the News of the World newspaper in 2006. A map by Robert Ogilvy in 1741 of the estate of Sir John Maxwell of Pollok shows a field called "The Park" just to the west of the building "Kinnen House" and south of what today is Paisley Road Toll, but up to the 19th century was called Parkhouse Toll. Hence, this proximity of "The Park" and "Kinning House" is to be the origin of the name Kinning Park as the area developed. "Kinning" could be linked to the Scots word "kinnen" meaning a rabbit. This would be consistent the naming of the neighbouring area of Ibrox after the old Scots term "Y brocks" meaning "the badgers". In nearby Pollokshields there was once a half-mile long grassy valley called "The Cunyan", which existed south of Fleurs Avenue and the railway line, until it was built over as part of the route of the M77 motorway in the mid-1970s.
The same Robert Ogilvy map of 1741 shows a field called the "Plantation" in the area which became known as Plantation, to be the origin of that local name. There is a story that a owner of the area, a Mr Robertson, named the area Plantation in the 1780s because he owned property in the West Indies. However, the Ogilvy map suggests that the area was known as Plantation well before Mr Robertson's period. From 1850 Kinning Park grew from a rural village to a busy centre inhabited by artisans and labourers, its principal industries were engineering and biscuit baking, soap-making and paint-making. Andrew Boa was involved in the formation of Kinning Park Co-Operative Society in 1871 which flourished up until 1952 opening retail and manufacturing premises in Kinning Park and many other neighbouring districts south of the Clyde. Kinning Park is now a district in Glasgow situated on the south bank of the Clyde about 1-mile west of the city centre between Kingston and Ibrox/Govan, it is served by Kinning Park subway station, the closest to the surface of all the stations on the 15 station circle.
Nowadays the district is home to many small industrial units, until 2009 was home to the Scottish versions of News International's UK newspaper titles. The headquarters of BBC Scotland and Scottish Television were relocated to Pacific Quay over a period between 2004 and 2008, just to the west of the boundary of the old burgh. Our Lady and St Margaret's Primary School is a former primary school located at Stanley Street; the school, designed by the architects Bruce & Hay, was established in 1910. It was closed in 1996-97; this is a Category C listed building as a good example of a school building on a palazzo scale. In addition to the school, there was a presbytery in the building, opened in 1882. There was a playground for the school children in a walled area on the roof of the building; this meant. The school was converted into offices during 2006-2010 in three phases of building and letting by Loft Office Limited under the development name Stanley Street Schoolhouse. Donald Bruce and Edward Hay were partners in an architectural firm based in West George Street.
Bruce was born in Caithness and from 1881-1905 he was the surveyor to Kinning Park Burgh Council. Bruce and Hay designed a number of other distinctive buildings in the Kinning Park area including: Kinning Park Library.
Scotland national under-21 football team
The Scotland national under-21 football team, controlled by the Scottish Football Association, is Scotland's national under 21 football team and is considered to be a feeder team for the Scotland national football team. As a European under-21 team, Scotland compete in the UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, held every other year; the team has qualified for the final stages of these Championships on six occasions, although not since 1996. There is no global tournament for under-21 national teams. Performance in the European Championship determines qualification for football at the Summer Olympics, which Scotland is unable to compete in. Scotland played under-23 international matches friendlies against England and Wales, from 1955 until 1975. Scotland first entered the UEFA competition for under-23 national teams in 1975–76. Scotland were eliminated on a penalty shootout by the Netherlands. An under-21 team came into existence, replacing the under-23 team, when UEFA reduced the age limit.
Scotland under-21s have reached the last four of the European tournament three times, while appearing in the quarter finals on three other occasions. The team qualified for the 1992 Summer Olympics and 1996 Summer Olympics, but were unable to compete due to Scotland not being independently represented in the International Olympic Committee. Similar to the full national side, the under-21 team has not qualified for a finals tournament since the late 1990s; the under-21 team reached the playoff round for the 2004 and 2011 tournaments, but lost to Croatia and Iceland respectively. *Denotes draws include knockout matches decided by a penalty shootout. Bronze background color indicates fourth-place finish.

Paul Le Guen
Paul Joseph Marie Le Guen is a French football manager and a former player who enjoyed a successful stay with PSG and won 17 caps for the France national team. During his playing career, Le Guen played at Stade Brest for six years, Nantes Atlantique for two years, before leaving his home region of Brittany for Paris St. Germain. In seven seasons at the Parc des Princes he made 478 appearances, winning a league title, three French Cups, two League Cups and the Cup Winners' Cup medal in 1996). At international level he played 17 times for France due to injuries and he was part of the team which lost out on a trip to the World Cup in 1994, along with Eric Cantona and David Ginola, he ended his playing career by taking part in a friendly where his home region of Brittany faced Cameroon on 21 May 1998. The match finished 1–1. Le Guen had a successful managerial career in France, most notably leading Olympique Lyonnais to three consecutive Ligue 1 titles, he has managed Stade Rennais, Paris Saint-Germain, Glasgow Rangers and the Cameroon national team.
In July 2016, he was to be named manager of the Nigeria national team, but didn't agree to the contract terms. During his time at Rennes between 1998 and 2001, Le Guen was noted for signing unknown players, such as Shabani Nonda and El Hadji Diouf, who under his guidance, developed into talented footballers, he resigned from Rennes in 2001 after a fall-out with the club's board. This led to him taking a year off from football. Le Guen replaced Jacques Santini as manager of Olympique Lyonnais in 2002 after they captured their first league title. Le Guen experienced a grim start to his managerial career at Lyon, winning only 3 games of the first 9, but took Lyon to a further three consecutive championships and reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-final, he resigned from his position at Lyon on 9 May 2005, the day after the club won their fourth consecutive Ligue 1 championship. He was replaced by Gérard Houllier. After leaving the club, Le Guen embarked upon another year away from football management.
During this time he turned down management positions at several top European clubs including Benfica and Lazio and stated that he would not return to manage his former club PSG. On 11 March 2006, it was confirmed that Le Guen had agreed to replace Alex McLeish as manager of Rangers starting in the 2006–07 season. Le Guen signed a three-year contract with the option to extend his stay at Ibrox, acquired a number of players. However, Le Guen made a poor start to his Ibrox career, his record across his first ten league games was the worst start to a season by an Old Firm debutant since John Greig's team won only two, drew six and lost two of their opening ten games in 1978–79. On 8 November, Rangers were knocked out of the Scottish League Cup at the quarter-final stage by First Division side St Johnstone; the result, the first time Rangers had been knocked out of a cup tournament by a lower league side at home, prompted protests outside Ibrox and demands for the situation to improve. On 1 January 2007, Rangers announced that Le Guen had stripped Barry Ferguson of his captaincy of the club and dropped him from the squad for a match the following day.
BBC Sport reported. Club chairman David Murray announced on 4 January 2007 that Le Guen had left Rangers by mutual consent. At the time, this made him the club's shortest-serving manager, the only one to leave the club without completing a full season in charge. Le Guen's European record with Rangers has been described as being'excellent' after remaining unbeaten in the 2006–07 UEFA Cup and finishing at the top of their group; however it was the poor domestic results that led to his departure. It was announced on 15 January 2007 that Le Guen would return to the club he once skippered as a player as first team coach replacing Guy Lacombe at Paris Saint Germain; when he arrived, PSG were lying 17th in Ligue 1 but he led them to safety in his first season finishing 15th. As the 2007–08 season in Ligue 1 unfolded, it was clear that Le Guen was getting inconsistent performances from the crop of players, as the club was in the relegation zone with four games in the league season remaining, while winning the Coupe de la Ligue and qualifying for the final of the Coupe de France.
Winning the Coupe de la Ligue guaranteed PSG a place in the UEFA Cup for the 2008–09 season. PSG announced in May 2009 that Le Guen would not be offered a new contract and would leave at the end of the 2008–09 season. Le Guen was named Cameroon national football team manager in July 2009, signing a five-month contract, he made an immediate impact by leading the team to qualification for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He stripped veteran defender Rigobert Song of the captaincy and appointed Samuel Eto'o as the new captain. Both players responded well to the change with Eto'o getting goals, Song winning back his starting spot as the Lions qualified for the finals; however Cameroon were the first team knocked out of the 2010 World Cup. He announced his resignation on 24 June 2010. Towards the end of the 2010–11 season, Le Guen claimed he had received job offers from several Ligue 1 clubs that were seeking new candidates to fill the remaining vacancies, but he turned them all down, he accepted an offer from Oman national football team on 11 June 2011.
He led Oman to qualification for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, where they were to be absent in 2011. Oman were eliminated in the group stage of the tournament with two losses, he was sacked on 19 November 2015 after a poor start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign.

Glasgow is the most populous city in Scotland, the third most populous city in the United Kingdom, as of the 2017 estimated city population of 621,020. Part of Lanarkshire, the city now forms the Glasgow City council area, one of the 32 council areas of Scotland. Glasgow is situated on the River Clyde in the country's West Central Lowlands. Inhabitants of the city are referred to as "Glaswegians" or "Weegies", it is the fourth most visited city in the UK. Glasgow is known for the Glasgow patter, a distinct dialect of the Scots language, noted for being difficult to understand by those from outside the city. Glasgow grew from a small rural settlement on the River Clyde to become the largest seaport in Scotland, tenth largest by tonnage in Britain. Expanding from the medieval bishopric and royal burgh, the establishment of the University of Glasgow in the fifteenth century, it became a major centre of the Scottish Enlightenment in the eighteenth century. From the eighteenth century onwards, the city grew as one of Great Britain's main hubs of transatlantic trade with North America and the West Indies.
With the onset of the Industrial Revolution, the population and economy of Glasgow and the surrounding region expanded to become one of the world's pre-eminent centres of chemicals and engineering. Glasgow was the "Second City of the British Empire" for much of the Victorian era and Edwardian period, although many cities argue the title was theirs. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Glasgow's population grew reaching a peak of 1,127,825 people in 1938. Comprehensive urban renewal projects in the 1960s, resulting in large-scale relocation of people to designated new towns; the wider metropolitan area is home to over 1,800,000 people, equating to around 33% of Scotland's population. The city has one of the highest densities of any locality in Scotland at 4,023/km2. Glasgow hosted the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the first European Championships in 2018; the origin of the name'Glasgow' is disputed. It is common to derive the toponym from the older Cumbric glas cau or a Middle Gaelic cognate, which would have meant green basin or green valley.
The settlement had an earlier Cumbric name, Cathures. It is recorded that the King of Strathclyde, Rhydderch Hael, welcomed Saint Kentigern, procured his consecration as bishop about 540. For some thirteen years Kentigern laboured in the region, building his church at the Molendinar Burn where Glasgow Cathedral now stands, making many converts. A large community became known as Glasgu; the area around Glasgow has hosted communities for millennia, with the River Clyde providing a natural location for fishing. The Romans built outposts in the area and, to keep Roman Britannia separate from the Celtic and Pictish Caledonia, constructed the Antonine Wall. Items from the wall like altars from Roman forts like Balmuildy can be found at the Hunterian Museum today. Glasgow itself was reputed to have been founded by the Christian missionary Saint Mungo in the 6th century, he established a church on the Molendinar Burn, where the present Glasgow Cathedral stands, in the following years Glasgow became a religious centre.
Glasgow grew over the following centuries. The Glasgow Fair began in the year 1190; the first bridge over the River Clyde at Glasgow was recorded from around 1285, giving its name to the Briggait area of the city, forming the main North-South route over the river via Glasgow Cross. The founding of the University of Glasgow in 1451 and elevation of the bishopric to become the Archdiocese of Glasgow in 1492 increased the town's religious and educational status and landed wealth, its early trade was in agriculture and fishing, with cured salmon and herring being exported to Europe and the Mediterranean. Following the European Protestant Reformation and with the encouragement of the Convention of Royal Burghs, the 14 incorporated trade crafts federated as the Trades House in 1605 to match the power and influence in the town council of the earlier Merchants' Guilds who established their Merchants House in the same year. Glasgow was subsequently raised to the status of Royal Burgh in 1611. Glasgow's substantial fortunes came from international trade and invention, starting in the 17th century with sugar, followed by tobacco, cotton and linen, products of the Atlantic triangular slave trade.
Daniel Defoe visited the city in the early 18th century and famously opined in his book A tour thro' the whole island of Great Britain, that Glasgow was "the cleanest and beautifullest, best built city in Britain, London excepted". At that time the city's population was about 12,000, the city was yet to undergo the massive expansionary changes to its economy and urban fabric, brought about by the Scottish Enlightenment and Industrial Revolution. After the Acts of Union in 1707, Scotland gained further access to the vast markets of the new British Empire, Glasgow became p
Kilmarnock Football Club known as Killie, is a Scottish football team based in the town of Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire. The team is under the management of Steve Clarke; the club has won several honours since its formation in 1869, most the 2011–12 Scottish League Cup after a 1–0 win over Celtic at Hampden Park. Kilmarnock Football Club is the oldest football club in the Scottish Premiership, are the oldest professional club in Scotland. Home matches are played at Rugby Park, a 17,889 capacity all seater stadium situated in the town itself. Kilmarnock took part in the first official match in the Scottish Cup against the now defunct Renton in 1873. Kilmarnock have a long standing football rivalry with fellow Ayrshire side Ayr United, with both teams playing in the Ayrshire derby in which both sides first met in September 1910. Kilmarnock have long been the most successful side in the Ayrshire derby, winning 189 times in 256 meetings; the club have qualified for European competitions on nine occasions, their best performance coming in the 1966–67 Fairs Cup when they progressed to the semi-finals being eliminated by Leeds United.
The club is one of only a few Scottish clubs to have played in all three European competitions. The club's foundation dates back to the earliest days of organised football in Scotland, when a group of local cricketers looking for a sporting pursuit to occupy them outside of the cricket season looked to form a football club. On 5 January 1869 the club was founded during a general meeting at Robertson's Temperance Hotel on Portland Street, they played a game more similar to rugby and these origins are reflected to this day by the name of the club's home ground – Rugby Park. The difficulty in organising fixtures under this code and the growing influence of Queen's Park soon persuaded them to adopt the association code instead. At this time, the club played games in a number locations including Holm Quarry, the Grange on Irvine Road and a location close to the current Rugby Park. Following the formation of Scotland's earliest football clubs in the 1860s, football experienced a rapid growth but there was no formal structure, matches were arranged in a haphazard and irregular fashion.
Queen's Park, a Glasgow club founded in 1867, took the lead, following an advertisement in a Glasgow newspaper in 1873, representatives from seven clubs – Queen's Park, Vale of Leven, Third Lanark and Granville – attended a meeting on 13 March 1873. Furthermore, Kilmarnock sent a letter stating their willingness to form the Scottish Football Association; that day, these eight clubs formed the Scottish Football Association, resolved that: The clubs here represented form themselves into an association for the promotion of football according to the rules of The Football Association and that the clubs connected with this association subscribe for a challenge cup to be played for annually, the committee to propose the laws of the competition. Kilmarnock competed in the inaugural Scottish Cup tournament in 1873–74, their 2–0 defeat against Renton in the First Round on 18 October 1873 is thought to have been the first match played in the competition. Kilmarnock joined the Scottish League in 1895 and after winning consecutive Second Division titles were elected to the top flight for the first time in 1899.
In 1920 Kilmarnock won the Scottish Cup for the first time beating Albion Rovers at Hampden. This was followed soon by their second success in 1929 where the beat massive favourites Rangers 2–0 at the national stadium in front of a crowd of 114,708 people. In 1964–65 Heart of Midlothian fought out a championship title race with Willie Waddell's Kilmarnock. In the era of two points for a win Hearts were three points clear with two games remaining. Hearts drew with Dundee United meaning the last game of the season with the two title challengers playing each other at Tynecastle would be a league decider. Kilmarnock needed to win by a two-goal margin to take the title. Hearts entered the game as favourites with both a statistical and home advantage, they had a solid pedigree of trophy winning under Tommy Walker. Waddell's Kilmarnock in contrast had been nearly men. Four times in the previous five seasons they had finished league runners-up including Hearts’ triumph in 1960. Killie had lost three domestic cup finals during the same period including the 1962 League Cup Final defeat to Hearts.
Hearts had won five of the six senior cup finals. The final they had lost was in a replay after drawing the first game. Hearts' Roald Jensen hit the post after six minutes. Kilmarnock scored twice through Davie Sneddon and Brian McIlroy after 27 and 29 minutes. Alan Gordon had an excellent chance to clinch the title for Hearts in second half injury time but was denied by a Bobby Ferguson diving save pushing the ball past the post; the 2–0 defeat meant Hearts lost the title by an average of 0.042 goals. Subsequently, Hearts were instrumental in pushing through a change to use goal difference to separate teams level on points; this rule change denied Hearts the title in 1985–86. This is the only time to date. After a period of decline in the 1980s which saw the club relegated to the Second Division, Killie have returned to prominence, holding top division status since being promoted in 1993 and lifting the Scottish Cup for the third time in 1997 thanks to a 1–0 victory over Falkirk in the final; the club have qualified for European competitions on nine occasions, their best performance coming in the 1966–67 Fairs Cup when they progressed to the semi-finals being eliminated by Leeds United.

In 2016, American businessman Frank McCourt bought the club from her, appointed businessman Jacques-Henri Eyraud as the club president, with Rudi Garcia appointed as the manager of the club's first team. Olympique de Marseille was founded as an omnisport club in 1892 by René Dufaure de Montmirail, a French sports official. Known as Sporting Club, US Phocéenne and Football Club de Marseille in the first five years after its foundation, the club adopted the name Olympique de Marseille in 1899 in honour of the anniversary of Marseille's founding by Greeks from Phocaea some 25 centuries earlier, with the name Olympique, coming from ancient Olympic Games. At first, rugby union was the most important team sport of the club, the motto Droit au but coming from rugby.
Affiliated with the Union des Sociétés Françaises de Sports Athlétiques since 1898, it was only in 1902, thanks to English and German people, that football began to be played by Olympique de Marseille. Richer and better organised than other football teams of Marseille, Olympique de Marseille playing at the Stade de l'Huveaune, took the leadership in the city. In 1904, Olympique de Marseille won the first Championnat du Littoral, involving opposing teams from Marseille and its suburbs, took part in the final rounds of the 11th French championship. At that time, the word "football" applied to rugby, people used the word "Association" for football. During the 1920s, Olympique de Marseille became an important team in France, winning the Coupe de France in 1924, 1926 and 1927; the team won the French championship in 1929. The Coupe de France in 1924 was the club's first major title, won against FC Sète, a side that dominated French football at the time. In the'20s, numerous French internationals, such as Jules Dewaquez, Jean Boyer or Joseph Alcazar, played for Marseille.
In 1930, Marseille lost in the semi-final round. In 1931, the team became champion of the South-East, with victories against rivals such as Sète. In the Coupe de France, l'OM lost in five matches to Club français, winning the second match, cancelled due to the disqualification of Marseille striker Vernicke. Though the 1931–32 season was less successful, Marseille entered the professional ranks, becoming a member of the union of professional clubs in 1932. On 13 January 1932 at 9:15 pm, at the Brasserie des Sports, Mr. Dard, Mr. Bison, Dr. Rollenstein, Mr. Etchepare, Mr. Leblanc, Mr. Mille, Mr. Anfosso, Mr. Sabatier, Mr. Seze, Mr. Bazat, Mr. Molteroj and Mr. Pollack elected the following committee: Honorary presidents: Paul Le Cesne et Fernand Bouisson President: M.

For the first championship, Division 1 was divided into two pools. Marseille finished second behind Lille.
For its first match of the championship, Marseille defeated Lille. In 1937, Marseille won its first professional French championship thanks to goal difference; the arrival of Vasconcellos made the defence stronger, whereas former goalkeeper Laurent Di Lorto shone with Sochaux and France. In the meantime, Marseille won the Coupe de France in 1935 and 1938 but failed a double success in 1934, due to FC Sète. In 1938, Larbi Ben Barek became "the black pearl" for the team. World War II would cut his career short; the 1942–43 season was full of records: 100 goals in 30 matches, including 20 in one match, in which Aznar scored nine goals, including the first eight, playing only 70 minutes. Aznar scored 11 in cup games, for a record of 56 goals in 38 matches. With the minots of the moment, Marseille won. In 1948, thanks to a draw against Sochaux, Marseille became the champions of France; the two last victories at the Stade Vélodrome against Roubaix and Metz were important, as Aznar and Robin's returned in spring.
In 1952, Marseille were about to be rel
