2009 LC Final, a quite forgettable final if there ever was one, playing Lafferty up front on his own never works( and still doesn’t?)

1975, Did Colin Stein hat sent off?
Down 1/0 two great goals from Mclean
and Parlane to win the game. And a riot breaking out as well.
Yup, was at that one. Can remember JG cracking one off the post in the first half.

Wee Tam's goal I was shiting myself that he was taking too long over sticking it in the pokie, waltzing around one and another and the same guy twice. I needn't have worried as he calmly rolled it home.

Like Yosser Hughes above that was the day in 1975 I knew it was coming home.

Just checked the companion Hansen scored 2 and it was a Wednesday night - the following Saturday the Gers drew 2 each with the tarriers at Ibrox - it was a very disappointing season

He played left wing that day I'm sure and had our only decent attempt with a volley from the edge of the box. But yes.

2014: Cracking free kick from Steven Smith, it was his second Rangers goal, his first also came against Dunfermline

We had a goal disallowed v the 'shettlestons' (wee doddy) that would have been the winner.

Conn walloped the woodwork for the filth in the first half.

Had that feeling that day it was coming home as well, we only had to wait two weeks

Did Alan Hansen score for Thistle?
Yes, twice.
Rangers were leading 3-2, Hansen equalised in the 67th min, then scored the winner from the penalty spot 5 mins from time.
His brother Johnny Hansen also played for Thistle that night.
Eric Morris made his only appearance of the season for us (at Centre Half!).
It would be 2 years before he got a game for us again.
