I'll never forget it mate. What a solo effort. I'll never forget this image either

I also loved Lee Wallace's goal, such a beautifully weighted pass from Davis after holding the ball for just the right amount of time, then a good finish. The sight of Wallace racing to the crowd with his arms in the air and the head back is an enduring image as well, it summed up the occasion nicely.

Fucking superb!!!!!!!💙

Tam....I hope so mate...ur a top man👍

Where you from?

Clydebank these days, Renfrew as a wee guy before family uprooted to south east England in 1978 when I was 5. Had a great proper Presbyterian upbringing thanks to my grandad and my mum. Plus the hatred wasn’t hard to have given that Eastbourne is full of fenian bastards ha ha 9iar years was truly glorious 😂😂

Is it true he paid to join us? Dynamic player, great to watch.

Think at the time we were struggling to pay £300k compensation.

Great photo mate, and the Wallace photo of him showing pure joyous emotion after his goal that day is truly iconic 

There’s a photo of Wallace celebrating that goal that’s been my lock screen on my phone ever since then. Mental to think that it was seven years ago now :lol:

Aluko was a million times better than Weiss.

I disagree, although Aluko possibly did do more for Rangers than Weiss did in there short stints at our club, overall for me Weiss was in a different class altogether

It's funny how a goal against them can immortalise a player. Edu is a great example, he was a hero at that moment in time and the fans will remember him for that. Not that we would forget about him but you know what I mean.

When I think of Jelavic I think of that goal in the League Cup semi. Especially since it was such a dramatic goal: quick thinking free kick from Weiss, lung bursting run for Jela to get in front of the defender, last gasp stretch, gets a touch, ball rolls towards the post, everyone watches intensely as it hits the post runs along the line and finally into the net.

Definitely mate, but to be fair a goal against them, especially a winner is just about as good as it gets lol. 
funny thing with Jelavic, the amount of stunning goals he scored the one I remember most is the one at hampden in the cup final that hit both posts and barely crossed the line. Remember everycunt singing “the balls a fucking prody” ha ha great times. 
with Edu my favourite moment was the last minute scramble in Lisbon, lost my phone over the top tier when that goal went on ha ha

That's the Jelavic goal I meant yeah, meant to say cup final not semi. If I was going to shoot a scene for some football drama film where a striker scores the most dramatic goal possible, that one would do nicely!

Hoping history will repeat itself this season in that same competition, Alfredo getting his big moment. He must want that so bad and he would fucking deserve it.

Law of averages says he’s got to score against them this season, he’s so much better than last season and if he keeps the head he will totally boss their defence all day, they literally couldn’t live with him, if we turn up and get it right, give him the chances I’ve no doubt this will be his final. 
our defence is looking solid now, Barasic is now the player we hoped we’d see, Tav is coming out of his bad run of form and jack and Davis are just superb together in midfield we have every right to go into this game feeling it’s ours to take. Kent also gives them the fear and should be totally up to speed now, stay injury free until the 8th and I believe we’re the better team.

Incomparable.

Weiss won 2 trophies with us.

Forgot that when I posted my reply. Just overall as players and careers had, Weiss was on a different level all day long

It’s funny mate, as much as it’s supposed to be a fenian stronghold, there are more bears here than I thought a few years back, my wee street is more us than them, the woman at the bottom of the street sits 6 seats away from me and the wife ha ha never even knew she lived there till she spoke to us one day at half time 😂😂😂 it’s heartwarming to see more and more Rangers tips about the last couple of seasons especially the young guys.

Agree, there's nothing to stop Morelos scoring against them. After what we've seen him do against Porto and the trouble he's caused virtually every side, plus his big improvement from last season as you say. He just switches off during confrontations now, turns away, so he must be a great bet to score against them.

Barasic is flying just now and it's so great to see that, the fans love for him must have him walking on air and enjoying his football too. Jack and Davis are so fucking solid. Kent has gone up a gear recently, he's got a good few still to go too. I actually fancy him to score against them. Either Kent scores, Kent sets up Morelos, or Barasic sets up Morelos. Having said that the goals could come from almost anywhere based on what we've seen, and that also is a great sign.

Spot on mate, we literally have goals from every part of the pitch now, I firmly believe as long as we set up as we did for the last 3 games of last season against them we win, and potentially comfortably to, we should have beat them at the piggery even after going down to ten, in fact we became more dangerous after we had, two things cost us more than Morelos red, and the one that cost us most was Warralls ridiculous decision to back off and off and off from the half way line against the overrated french fucker instead of smashing him on the halfway line and taking a booking. I’ll never understand the reasoning as to why modern centre halves back off the way they do, especially in two v one situations, fuck me surely they don’t get that instructed, you’d think one would go to the ball/man. Tavs mistake that day will be the one most remember but it was just unfortunate but costly but warrall was unforgivable for me.

We were the perfect club for Aluko, reckon he'd have been excellent had the shit not hit the fan.

Just read that he had a trial at Juventus before he came to us, with other Serie A teams being interested as well. I wonder how much of that is true and also what happened there.

His sister was a better player.

She must be doing well because every time I try to Google Sone I get results for her instead, despite using his first name. He must be raging being overshadowed on search engines by his big sister.

She played for England I believe, many times.
