Thread is picking up a lot of traction in reddit. 

A lot of praise from various fan bases coupled with the obvious moaning by the plastics. 

Archibald Leitch sure knew how to build them. Ibrox is a cauldron of noise and an absolute fortress.

Would love him to win CL to end an incredible career

Amazing how his career is similar to Dino Zoff in that respect. 

Zoff played in two European Cup finals with two defeats. Buffon three. 

Although Zoff also won the European Championship which Buffon never did.

Zoff captained Italy to a World Cup triumph in 1982, think he was about 40 years old at the time too......unreal.

Apparently a factory in his hometown which had employed locals for generations was closing down as it was losing money for years,Buffon stepped in and bought it to protect the jobs ,he stated he knew he would not make money from it but it was important to the town.

wonder how many fans suggesting dortmund know their stadium is based on Ibrox 

Was it not the other way around? Willie Waddell visited Dortmund's stadium after the disaster to get ideas on how to revamp Ibrox?

He won the IFFHS World Goalkeeper of the Year award while playing in Serie B, which is hilarious and amazing, and also something that puts the likes of Steven Naismith to shame.

Not a fair comparison to be fair. Juve only had a single year out the top division. We didn't even have a division at one point. He had just signed a 5yr contract, along with a lot of the other players. I think most would've stayed if it was just a season in the first division. Not defending what he done/said, just pointing out that it's apples and oranges.

Sure, but if you're going to point out the differences in the scenario, Buffon was the best goalkeeper in the world and possibly ever, and a newly crowned world cup winner, and Steven Naismith was Steven Naismith. One did the right thing by his club and reaped the career rewards. One didn't.

Juve are in a different league to Rangers, both literally and hypothetically. (and financially, the biggest pull these days).
