HAMPDEN Park is usually packed to the rafters with football fans.

However, back in 1955, a massive crowd had turned up to listen to Dr Billy Graham.

He showed why he was one of the world's best-known evangelists when he launched a hugely-popular All-Scotland Crusade.

Over six weeks, the crusade reached more than 2.5million people at mass meetings and relay services.

It also prompted 50,000 Scots to 'make a stand for Christ.' Today's picture was taken at the National Stadium, but Billy also held rallies at Ibrox and Kelvin Hall.

It was at Hampden Park that Dr Graham, moved by the fact that 100,000 had turned up to hear him, said: "We have fallen in love with you people ... we are going to carry away a little bit of Scotland with us.''
