Rangers 3-2 Porto, UEFA Champions League - September 2005


Recommended Posts

YouTube were blocking this upload due to a copyright claim by UEFA ūüė© so this one is up on Veoh. I admit to never hearing of them before but after trying Dailymotion and Vimeo I was rapidly running out of options.

Rangers 3-2 Porto in the Champions League Group stages in Sept 2005. A dramatic game and solid start to the group (just like last night). A great finish by Peter Lovenkrands.

One thing that strikes me from watching this back was that the team was quite weak. Ian Murray, Olivier Bernard, Hamed Namouchi and Francis Jeffers! Jeffers really was a carthorse and the £8m Arsenal paid for that guy must’ve been the worst £8m they ever spent.

This was a game I was at and really enjoyed the drama of it, but it’s hard to ignore how poor our defense was that night.

Rangers: Waterreus, Ricksen, Rodriguez, Kyrgiakos, Bernard, Namouchi (Novo 72), Ferguson, Murray, Lovenkrands (Buffel 56), Prso, Jeffers (Thompson 84). Subs Not Used: Klos, Andrews, Alex Rae, Pierre-Fanfan. 

Booked: Prso. Goals: Lovenkrands 35, Prso 59, Kyrgiakos 85. 

FC Porto: Vitor Baia, Pepe, Ricardo Costa, Pedro Emanuel (Sonkaya 41), Cesar Peixoto, Gonzalez, Diego (Quaresma 64), Ibson, Alan (Hugo Almeida 64), Sokota, Jorginho. Subs Not Used: Paulo Ribeiro, Lopez, Paulo Assuncao, Cech. 

Booked: Gonzalez, Hugo Almeida. Goals: Pepe 47, 71. 

Att: 48,599

Amazing! I was 10 when this was played and remember it so vividly. Tried to find it on youtube a few times and the same with rtv. Thanks¬†ūüėĀ

No problem mate. I did try uploading it to YouTube yesterday but I was immediately blocked due to a copyright claim on the entire match by UEFA.
