At the end of the game the 39,131 crowd gave the departing Ray Wilkins a standing ovation,the likes of which had seldom been seen in the grand old stadium. In the two years since his arrival,Ray Wilkins had confirmed himself as one of the most outstanding midfield talents in the game and was widely believed to have been the finest player in his position seen in a Rangers shirt.He was leaving Rangers to join London's Queen's Park Rangers,where he would become manager.

1992 - Rangers 2 (McSwegan,Hateley) Marseille 2 - European Champions League Group A (41,624)
Rangers' reward for beating Leeds United in the second round was entry into the mini-League alongside Marseille,CSKA Moscow and Bruges. Rangers' first match brought them up against the side that would ultimately go on to win the cup (although they were found guilty of match fixing and subsequently stripped of their French title,relegated to the second division and banned from defending their European title the following season),with the French club more than worth their 2-2 draw at Ibrox. Indeed,Rangers were hit by injuries,unable to play more than three of their foreigners (which included the English players) and mightly relieved to have salvaged something from the game.

1992 - unexpected come back of the season.

Seem to remember davie dodds being on the bench we were that short of numbers.
We were hammered 2-2.
McSwegan comes on and scores within 1 minute, changed the game.

1994 - McCoists only goal of the season. The game was on the Friday night to let the pitch have a day to recover for the Raith v Sellik coca cola cup final on the Sunday :D

Rangers recovery against Marseille raises the roof​


Rangers FC 2-2 Olympique de Marseille
A stunning late comeback whipped the crowd at Ibrox into a frenzy and earned the Scottish side a point on their group stage debut.

There are few venues as vibrant as Ibrox during an Old Firm derby, but with so much at stake in the inaugural UEFA Champions League group stage, the visit of Olympique Marseille took intensity to new levels.

Their campaign was floundering inside only 55 minutes, with goals from Rudi Völler and Alen Bokšić landing a heavy blow to Rangers FC's hopes of winning the section and qualifying for the final. As Ibrox roared headers by Gary McSwegan and Mark Hateley kept the Scottish champions' European dream alive.

Without their injured talisman Ally McCoist, it was always going to be a tall order for the hosts to tame a Marselle side boasting such emerging talents as goalkeeper Fabien Barthez, centre-back Marcel Desailly and midfield general Didier Deschamps – 21, 23 and 24 respectively. But it was Völler and Bokšić who justified their reputation as two of the deadliest marksmen in Europe, with strikes either side of half-time.

Rangers had started promisingly, Oleksiy Mykhaylychenko and Hateley sending decent chances wide, yet Marseille's attacking verve told on 31 minutes when Völler, crowded by defenders, conjured a left-wing cross which Bokšić dispatched with a cool, first-time finish.

It sparked a concerted spell of pressure as the hosts found themselves increasingly pegged back. They survived a close call when Abedi Pele hit the foot of goalkeeper Andy Goram's post, but within ten minutes of the restart it was 2-0. Völler reacted first to Steven Pressley's lunging miscue, raced around Goram and slotted into an empty net.

It was just as Walter Smith's side, shorn of the injured Richard Gough for the entire second half, looked as though they might be overrun that they gained a foothold in the match. Mykhaylychenko raced onto Ian Durrant's through ball and crossed for McSwegan, only just on as a replacement, to arc a header into the top corner 14 minutes from time.

Super sub McSwegan also had a hand in the equaliser six minutes later, flicking a deft pass to Durrant, whose deflected cross was met by Hateley's diving header – and the deafening Ibrox roar.

1967 - Alex Ferguson and Colin Stein had a cracker of a fight over near to where the Derry stood. The place was going mental and if we could have got our hands on Colin that day we would have done for him. If only we had known! :))

1990 Most memories are the McCoist robot celebration and the Hurlock tackle. But Johnston's goal was beautifully taken as well. We were without quite a few regulars that day.

I must have left early as I missed seeing Paul Elliott scoring their last minute equaliser while eating a banana :))

Do want to be seen as critical of Ray Wilkins who was a fabulous player for us in his time with the club, as well as being a total gentleman and a credit to the shirt. But not sure at all about the description used in Sam's brilliant OP.

In the two years since his arrival,Ray Wilkins had confirmed himself as one of the most outstanding midfield talents in the game and was widely believed to have been the finest player in his position seen in a Rangers shirt.

He was terrific, but the finest ever? Wee bit of exaggeration there I'm afraid.

Tend to agree with that. Not many would have him in their best 11. He was very good though, always be remembered for his rocket in the 5-1 rout of Celtic.
