😀 my wee maw bought me a copy, coral, I think the name was, I noticed it right away and went in a huff 😀, got the real one, to this day, its still my favourite Rangers top, would love to see us wearing something like that 👍

Slightly lighter blue ,bigger collar and shitey  more coarse material 😂😂

I took the huff and still wore it ,rid neck getting slagged to fuck for it ,I made up the excuse that my old man brought it back as it was the Abu Dhabi version 😂

Looking back when you see some of the players we had in the team at the one time its a wonder we were as poor generally as we were. Bett, cooper, russel and prytz all on the books at the same time. And redford was more than decent as well. On our day we could be really good, we could beat celtic as often as not and hardly ever lost to a really good Dundee utd team. We were so inconsistent though, we could lose to the bottom teams and we could never beat Aberdeen.

They were grim days mate, no season ticket waiting lists then, could sit where you bloody wanted, but yes, we did have some really good players.

The red one (away) was a  beautiful thing.

Slightly off topic ,getting a lump in my throat thinking of those days ,I was the same age my wee man is now ,different memories for him than me in 40 years time 

he will probably have memories of virus martials shooting cunts in the street for nicking bog roll 🙁

Jazzer.

Liked him right up to the point he joined the sheep.

Dead to me after that.

We tried to Resign him from the sheep.

Not sure if it was Jock Wallace.

I loved Jim Bett! Seemed to recall him scoring a cracker in the League Cup Final we lost to them? in 83? Also remember when he left he appeared to be complaining about struggling in the Old Firm goldfish bowl which is Glasgow. I was gutted when he left. Great player and could have easily stayed a few more seasons and won things.

I was at that game,  quite a wet day,  got soaked in the Rangers end of south enclosure in the old main stand.  A very skilful player.

Looked at that team again last night, you see the players in it and wonder how they were so bad. That midfield we had should've been the best in the country, they were better than we have now for sure. Even the centre halfs would walk into todays team, Mclelland was a cracking player who should've captained the team for years if he hadn't fell out with the club and Patterson was going to be a future Scotland captain until he came to us and it went to shit for him. We were maybe light up front, we never had a consistent goalscorer for sure. For whatever reason we seemed cursed, we could sign any amount of good players and it wasn't going to work. Maybe im looking back with rose tinted specs but those were good players and should've achieved far, far more.

Just watched a clip from a Euro game in 1982, Cooper and DJ scored in a great game.  I'd forgotten all about Jim Bett.  How long did he last at Ibrox?  He was a canny player.  I seem to remember him playing for Scotland in a World Cup tournament at one point.  Grateful for the clip from The Ibrox Derry.  A treat for us elderly exiles.

Check out this YouTube channel mate...

Pretty talented player.  Bumped into him in M&S Aberdeen a few years ago.

 He was buying sausage rolls.

Just went to his wikipedia page, and that's not there yet.

Could you add it please ?
