Albertzs long range shots

#56
Due to my age I don't recall much of ibrox before 98' really but I'm sitting here thinking I've yet to see someone who can strike a ball like this man. Is there anyone that any bears/ettes could come up with to be close?
I’ve got writers cramp on this one, we have a manager who was superb on this front. Unfortunately it would appear our players are NOT being trained on a technical front, that seems to be second nature to German football. We still play pussy foot football.

Albertz was almost one of a kind. Whilst players with his dig are rare, I feel we lack a midfield player who can pick the ball up 30/35 yards out and have good go. That would help us against teams who park the bus because it stops the box being packed. It also increases the chances of the keeper being unsighted or deflections. Stevie G knows a thing or two about that. :))

Lots of bears' favourite Ranger in the last 30 years including mine, even though Laudrup was the best in that time.

That shot of his was great for turning one point into three. Remember some yahoo in College asking me what we'll do when Albertz stops bailing us out :))

I remember him smashing one into someone's face in the wall, against Hibs I think, absolutely flattened him. The guy sitting in front of me got up and without saying a word just stood there making the "substitution" gesture with his fingers towards the dugout. I was pishing myself.

We rarely shoot from outside the box.

It is absolutely infuriating at times.

I've been watching Rangers since 1969 and in all that time I've never seen a more reliable free kick taker. So many times you just knew a goal was coming and you could smell the fear from the opposing players in the wall. And what about those goals against the scum in successive weeks in 1998? A real legend and a genuinely nice guy to boot.
