1881 - South Western 1 Rangers 2 (Inglis,McFarlane) - Scottish Cup 5th Round (3,000)
Immediately after the game South Western protested to the SFA on the grounds that the throw-in that led to Rangers' winning goal had not been thrown in straight.Remarkably,the SFA agreed with them and ordered a replay.
1887 - Rangers 0 Cowlairs 0 - Glasgow Cup Semi-Final Replay (5,000)

1898 - Rangers 5
(Campbell 4,R.C.Hamilton) St.Bernard's 2 - Scottish League Division One (3,000)
After surviving a close scare against Hibernian the previous month,Rangers' attempt to go through the entire season with a 100 per cent record had picked up with a hugely impressive win over Clyde.There was more of the same against St.Bernard's,with Campbell netting four of Rangers' goals and Robert Cumming Hamilton scoring the other.

2003 One of only two goals Østenstad scored for us,both in the league cup,shocking signing.
2014 2-0 up with 18 minutes left and we lost 3-2.Walking out the ground that night was awful,everyone was utterly dejected,depressing stuff.

2014 Gotta be up there with the worst in our history. 2 0 up against Alloa an we somehow lose 3 2. Disgraceful.
Stirling Albion when their gaffer was away getting married still tops it for me. I utterly despise the term 'banter years' but if I was ever going to use it it, it would be for that.

Anyway 2016 was a notable day for me as it was my first game in about a year for one reason or another. O'Halloran's only good performance for us. Cracking atmosphere too.

2014 - A real low point on the park, makes me appreciate what we have now, some posters that spout utter crap when we go a goal down on the match threads would do well to recall this abysmal game.

2006 - Even as an ardent advocate of PLG, I could see a defeat coming that day in the first moments of the game.

The team had just about chucked it under him, especially for domestic matches.. the irony was a great showing in Europe and youngsters like Hutton & Adam getting a real run in the team... things we had been crying out for.

We had 2 men sent off but held on to win with 9 men. Partly because of an incredible Stefan Klos save.

2000 - I think it was Reyna got an extra match ban for walking off too slowly.

Stuart Dougal, the guy who refused to red card Lennon five years later was the ref I'm sure.

1949 - There wouldn't have been too many times the IC defence shipped four goals.
