My wee granny died the day before this game never forget it , also was in section J never been so wet at a match but when that goals went in absolute bedlam .

I was in J too, up the back more .I was 8 months pregnant and when Robertson got sent off I burst into tears. Goal went in it was mental. That game and Kiev game are the highlight off my teenage years

It's highlights from this period, and the helicopter titles, that remind me how many ex-celtic players are still psychologically damaged.
It's nice to think we're about to embark on a whole new generation.

I was on a course down in England and managed to persuade the course director to let me watch the game in his house. Brought a carry out into his house which was packed with a few of them there. I almost lifted the roof off when Super Ally scored and they were quiet as a mouse. The course directors wife came through to the living room and asked us to all check our shoes. Guess who has trailed dug shit all over her beautiful house ? Yip me and you could see where my shitty shoes had jumped up and down after the goal.

Soaked to the skin that night.
As soon as Robertson got sent off, wee John Spencer was out warming up behind the goal and geeing up the bears. I don’t think he went back to the bench at all, just stayed there conducting the choir!
He was instrumental in firing us up for the remainder of the match

Full Sky version available here folks - includes a young Terry Butcher being incredibly biased FOR us!
Did a totally random drop in of this video and boom; you can easily see what Waddle had in mind that night.
Robertson sent off for a tackle/block that in those days was the yellowest of yellows.
Then check out Galloway's lunge at 1.52.40 and I don't think he was even booked.
It's Clancy before Clancy.

To be fair, Bomber may (may) have gotten away with a penalty :))

North enclosure for us.
a less than waterproof cagoule was thrown in bin,
monsoon night right enough
Also in the north enclosure. Remember getting in the Hoose and my head was bursting due to the driving rain and of course the singing.
If memory serves we were actually in their end of the park due to sect J and H being seated for the 1st time.

Oh and Waddell’s a phucking cheating kunt!!!

Thankfully behind the goal that night, it never stopped raining.
Forgot we had all the north enclosure due to them still standing in their end.

This game was my first game v them at hampden, I was 12. Soaked in the north enclosure with my old man. I have a recollection of the whole Rangers end singing Always look on the bright side of life after the final whistle. Is that right? I’m Sure this was the first time i heard this simple but glorious chant.

North enclosure for me that night, soaked to the skin.
Waddell was always a cheat, he hated us,the victory that night despite his corruption made it all the sweeter.
Nigel Spackman moved back to central defence and was outstanding.

The team that went on to win NIAR was forged that night - the way the team celebrated with the their manager at the end was full of meaning. All those late victories over the following years - the belief was first seen that night.

One of my favourite matches to have been at - in the newly seated Section H and I smoked like a beagle through that second half.

I’m clearly biased but Nigel Spackman gave that side a lot of options because he generally played in midfield and broke things up before passing the ball on.

He could also dip back into defence though and so when Stevens or Robertson went forward, he dropped back and maintained the back line.
That Rangers side of the early 1990s was just superb to watch - technically very good but a lot of clever and hard players throughout and if anyone wanted to make it a physical battle then Rangers were more than ready for it.

It was an absolute shocking decision to send him off.

Nothing in it, Miller got to the ball first yes but it was nothing more than a body check in a nothing part of the pitch.

A disgrace.

And because of that was probably the most satisfying win v them in my lifetime.
Andrew Waddell will always be a cnut
