Think they reached a semi final we applauded them on to the park,and duly shagged them 3-1i think?They were applauding the Celtic team (well except Baxter that is, who looked rather nonchalant about the whole thing ) after they had recorded a European win I believe.
Maybe in this fantastic thread in 10 years time we will see a picture of our new number 9 scoring against Cowdenbeath in a cup tie.Rangers 2-0 Cowdenbeath, League Cup SF, 14th October 1970. Colin Stein (wearing stripes for the night) scores the second and Gers are through:
2 incredible servants of Rangers in that picture.Rangers 2-2 Moscow Dynamo, friendly, 28th November 1945. Jimmy Smith starts the fightback with Gers first goal as we fight back from two down to draw with the great Russian side in a famous match at Ibrox:
We got stuck in traffic that day and got through the turnstiles about 10 past three, got to the top of the stairs and heard a big roar from their end.Celtic 3-3 Rangers, 21st November 1981. The man's a dumpling but Gordon Dalziel had some match in this game at the piggery, one of the best matches v them I've ever seen. Here he scores our first equaliser (and it was only the 5th minute!):

Thought we were 1-0 down then got told it was 2-1!
We were 3-2 up about 15 minutes later. Mad first half.
Were our 3 goals all headers?
This thread never fails. I have never seen the last photo with Big Tam being mobbed by his team mates. I have always loved seeing his initial reaction when he turned away after scoring the goal and running with arms outstretched. Tommy McLean and Quinton Young alternately hugging him and still big Tam ran. A goal which will live with me (hopefully) until the end.
That took me back!They were mate. Here's the highlights:
Stewart was back the following week for the League Cup Final so I guess he must've been injured. Aye, McAdam had a habit of scoring against us, as did Roddie MacDonald iirc.That took me back!
That very ordinary player Tom McAdam seemed to score a lot of goals against us back then, especially for a defender.
Shows how the memory plays tricks, I was sure Jim Stewart was in goal. Big McCloy made more comebacks than Frank Sinatra!
The photo in the post with Billy Ritchie saving against Monaco shows a white ball but that may have been a European rule. I think Kai Johansen’s goal in the 1966 Cup Final replay was a white ball past the despairing Ronnie Simpson. To memory I think the 1964 Final against Dundee used the dark ball so I assume mid 60’s is a reasonable guess. Maybe at the request of television??These pictures have me wondering.
When was it Scottish football started using a white ball?
The early 70s ones are white, but the Moscow Dynamo game and 1962 cup final aren't.
I started going to Ibrox in 1968, and can't remember the ball not being white back then unless it was snowy then it was orange. Was the white ball just about the same time as my football lifetime?
