  1. I was there too. Remember it like yesterday. We were 2-0 at half time and hard as it is to believe the fans were chanting “Wallace must go”. It was the 3-4th game of the season and sellick had won the double the previous season. Anyway, big Jock must have tore into them at half time because we ripped them apart in the second half. Two goals from Gordon Smith and one from DJ and we won 3-2 never looked back after that and won the treble i might be wrong but there were no cameras at that game because the SFA were concerned about falling attendances and blamed TV coverage. It would be amazing if there was a YouTube video of this game or alike
  2. Was my favourite ever Rangers player until Brian Laudrup arrived. Like a few other oldies on here I was underwhelmed when we signed him but after 2-3 games that changed. He was a wonderful footballer. His vision and passing was exceptional. Always remember a game at the Theatre of Screams he ran the show. Every time he seemed to get on the ball the sellick team team stopped! He had that ability and respect. And of course, as many many others have said, he was a class act off the park too. He was here only 18months or so yet is in our Hall of Fame - says it all really. RIP Razor, not just a Rangers Legend, a football legend
  3. A 100 years to the day (20th August 2017) Rangers Legend Willie Henderson lays a wreath on behalf of the club for former player and British Soldier, Jimmy Speirs. Jimmy was killed at the Battle of Passchendaele and was buried in Dochy Farm New British Cemetery just outside Ypres. Jimmy Speirs was awarded the Military Medal for bravery in the field. Wee Willie pays him a fitting tribute.
  4. ha ha - no chance! There was a trophy to lift ? This was the game that had the biggest attendance at a UK league match which still stands to this day - 118,567.
  5. VAR would have revealed Cadete handling the ball. I still think thats why the lino flagged
  6. Correct mate, i was still mesmerised by Gazza's goal ?
  7. 4-2 game JD - Gazza and McCoist 2 goals each this was the league cup final of that year. SCF was earlier and it was 5-1
  8. Helicopter Sunday 2005 - Motherwell have just scored for the second time and the Rangers dugout cannot contain their joy.

  10. Ibrox 1945 - fans start arriving for the Moscow Dynamo match
  11. Rangers squad at pre season training at Murder Hill, Gullane - July1983 Many players were reduced to vomiting during these sessions
  12. Rangers Chairman John Lawrence and Director Matt Taylor watch the team train and prepare for the 1972 ECWC Final in Barcelona
  13. That's my point -you and many others have assumed we will win today. Dont get me wrong, i hope and 'think' we will win but it's that home record of ours............... We have had some legendary meltdowns in here - if we dont win this afternoon then this one could top them all!
  14. Am I the only one fearing the mother of all meltdowns at 5pm? With regards this weekend - we are at home, so my confidence is fragile. Hearts are no mugs. Can we win? Of course we can. Will we? To be honest I wouldn’t put my house on it! Secondly, they rhats will maul the sheep on Sunday. In short, if we are still 9pts behind them tomorrow evening then I’ll settle for that right now.
  15. The Rangers mural on the corner of Donard and Ravenhill St, South Belfast honouring Sam English and all other Ulstermen who have wore the Light Blue. "Hands across the water"
  16. This is the only known picture of William MacBeath, one of our Gallant Pioneers. Born in Callander in 1856, William arrived in Glasgow around the same time and street as Peter and Moses McNeil and Peter Campbell. It was that legendary walk in nearby West End Park in May 1872 that the four boys had their dream. A dream that became reality and ultimately the world's most successful football club. William was man of the match in their first fixture at Fleshers Haugh against FC Callandar. He later moved down South, firstly to the Bristol area and ultimately, Lincoln. Unfortunately as time past William's fortunes and health failed him and he was interred in a pauper's grave in Cranwick Rd Cemetery on the outskirts of Lincoln. But inspired by the Gallant Pioneers book, William's grave was discovered and marked with a gravestone through a collection organised and donated by Bears all over the World. It is now a shrine and is visited regularly by Rangers fans. William MacBeath is a Gallant Pioneer, Hall of Fame member and a legend who will never be forgotten.
  17. It's the 4th January 1975. Rangers are playing a top of the league Sellick at Ibrox. A 3 goal victory for Rangers would put the Bears top of the league. Goals from Derek Johnstone and Tommy McLean put Rangers 2-0 up and this Derek Parlane (not in picture) looping header made it 3-0. This was the final score and Rangers did not look back and finally won the league at Easter Road a couple of months later denying Sellick 10 in a row!
  18. Correct Don - he looks like that guy from On The Buses ?
  19. It's a scotland team alright but not the Wembley Wizards. Only Alan Morton played that day and both McPhail and Cunningham are in that picture
  20. Quick quiz - who is that to the right of Jock Wallace?
  21. Our new legendary right back. It's all in front of you Tav.
