  1. Yes, let's sit back while others treat the Rangers as a figure of fun...that will never meet will approval on a Rangers forum.
  2. He could be just what we need to win the cup this season.
  3. Wonder if he's a tim? Community service and ban from porkheid and every other football ground for that matter would send out a stern message
  4. Staying with Colin... his last taste of glory was in season 77-78 while on loan from Rangers to Kilmarnock who played in the 1st division at the time which sensationally beat Celtic in a replayed Scottish Cup match to earn a trip to Ibrox in the quarter-finals. Rangers had to pulp all the tickets they had somewhat presumptively printed advertising their opponents as Celtic. Killie were beaten 4-1. Stein didn’t score but it was perhaps fitting that Ibrox was the ground where he played his last full 90 minutes.
  5. 1968-69 Fairs Cup second round. Colin Stein made his European debut for Rangers against Dundalk scoring twice helping his side to progress into the 3rd round. A month earlier in the 1st round of the competition he had helped Hibs into the 2nd round against NK Olimpija scoring in a 3-0 win.
  6. Wee 'Doddie' is one of my all-time favourites, the only midfielder in a blue jersey to come close to him imo for skill and battling qualities was Stu McCall. Jock Wallace in a later interview about his time as Rangers manager said Alex was always the first name on his team sheet. Delighted to hear he got a replica of his stolen CWC medal.
  7. In a Rangers v Falkirk league match in 1970, John Greig and Alex Ferguson were sent off for swapping punches.
  8. During the 1968-69 season John Greig was the regular penalty taker of the team. After 5 successes from the spot he then missed one in a nervy Fairs Cup quarter final first leg tie against Atletico Bilbao at Ibrox with 'Gers only leading 2-1. Greig vowed after the game (which finished 4-1) 'I'll never take another penalty kick'. 3 and a half years later in a League Cup game against Dumbarton with Rangers already 4-0 up, Derek Parlane the regular taker, and who had earlier put 'Gers 2-0 ahead from the spot, handed John the ball and said 'go on, take it',...he did and scored. THAT was the last penalty kick he ever took.
  9. Maybe the Ajax fans should have just chanted it instead of putting on a big banner for all to see.
  10. The cheek of this wee fella... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p5OuUPbGis
  11. Ayr United forward Moffat scored a hat-trick tonight at Somerset Park against Stranraer in a match held over from the weekend due to the Scottish Cup. But it wasn't enough to take the points as Longworth (3) Aitken (2pens) and a McKenna strike sealed an excellent 6-3 win for the visitors to move up to 5th in the table.
  12. Why do some threads descend into point scoring on who said what and who done what regarding who's in charge and who isn't in charge of our club?
  13. I had this about 26 years ago mate, wife rushed me to the Glasgow Royal - I thought it was a heart attack - was laid out on a hospital bed for a couple of hours with things attached to me, turned out it was nowt, never happened since. Here's to good health :cheers:
