We’ll say up to age 12, who was your Rangers hero?

And following on from something discussed in another thread, for those who have young kids now, who is their favourite player from the current squad? I’m keen to find out who the current hero is for younger bears.

When I was a kid? No brainer really, it was Super Ally (though it would later become Laudrup). Lucky to have to grown up when McCoist was doing his thing, the following gif more of less sums up the almost unimaginable Roy of the rovers type career he had.

Super Ally, then as a teenager it was Michael Mols.. met him a few times asking for his autograph etc.. absalout gentleman!!! Also remember i used to emulate Capucho by wearing my socks low.. less said about that the better haha

Davy Wilson.

I was the smallest and youngest of the boys I played football with at about five or six years old and was designated "Wee Davy Wilson." Had the blue V-neck Gers top with number 11 sewn on by my Mum.

I followed Davy's career after he left Rangers and even went to Boghead a few times to watch him playing for Dumbarton.

Ally McCoist

Always felt he could get us a winner in every game , that he also had great personality / banter & an all round gallus outlook (or so it seemed to me when I was in primary school , playing football with pals & doing my own version of goal poaching , it would be McCoist I’d ‘emulate’ , shout his name

That he also had a great , personalised & family friendly song meant it was easy to support him (in fact it seemed liked everyone , even non football fans or indeed opposition , thought he was a player / Scottish character of note

His goal scoring record for Rangers is incredible, especially considering at height of his career (2 golden boots!) broke his leg playing for Scotland and missed loads of games for us
