I’ve stuck the 2003 Masters Football on (Amazon Prime) to play in the background today for work and Nicky Walker is in goals

Admittedly the 80s is a period of Rangers that I’m very ignorant with and couldn’t tell you too much about outside the big players

What was he like for Rangers when he played? Wiki says he only played 75 times over 7 years, not including cup games

Slightly before my time but from what I understand he was an average goalie. Could be wrong though. Never really seen him for us. Just the vibe I got.

I remember him more for Hearts and seemed to do ok with them with Henry Smith (I think) taking it about for the number one spot.

My best memory of Nicky Walker was in 1992 my Boy's Brigade got comp tickets for Scotland vs Germany at Ibrox (Karl-Heinz Riedle scored the only goal) and me and my pals spent the whole match chanting "Nicky Walker's shite, we want Goram!" :lol: 

Don't know what's more a riddy that wee song as a kid or going to a Scotland game.

Was that the game Duncan Ferguson hit the bar with an overhead kick?

Walker was no Andy Goram , yet he was a very decent keeper for me . A time when, we had so many bad to bang average players in front of him . I was never a fan of our previous goalies  . Only good memories of Walker 

Good wee summary, pretty much my thoughts/memories too.  

Although obviously minted I’m sure he used the subway regularly to travel to Ibrox.

Walker was taking over from big McCloy around 83/84....it was grim times in those days but Walker was a capable back up when we signed Woods in 86....I'm sure in Woods 2nd season he missed a large chunk to an ear infection which affected his balance....Walker played a lot that season as his deputy....I think he was in goals for the league cup final against the sheep....can't remember if it was the 88 game or the 89 game
