Scottish football player Andrew Lewis Goram was a goalkeeper. His career began with Oldham Athletic and Hibernian, but he is best known for his time spent playing for Rangers in the 1990s when he gained the moniker “The Goalie.”
He was born in Bury, Lancashire, England on April 13, 1964, and died on July 2, 2022. Goram started his career with West Bromwich Albion, but as a youngster, they released him. Later, in 1981, he joined Oldham Athletic and lasted almost seven years there, playing 195 league games for them.
He was chosen for the 1986–1987 PFA Team of the Year for the English Second Division due to his performances. For a cost of £325,000, he transferred to Hibernian in 1987, where his father had previously served as a goalie for a short time. On October 10, 1987, he made his Hibs debut.
Goram transferred to Rangers in the summer of 1991 for a fee of £1 million. He made his season debut in a 6-0 victory over St. Johnstone on the first day of play. In July 2002, Goram signed a contract with Queen of the South of Dumfries, where he won the Scottish Challenge Cup. As a result, Goram became the first player to amass a complete set of champion medals from the four Scottish football tournaments.
