Mine would be season 75/76.

League match at Somerset Park –September/October time - humped 3-0 but.........................it was the first time we got served in a pub, pre and post match.

All of 16 and covered in acne and bum fluff – but 3 of us namely – me, Charing and another mate Ronnie fresh out of school got into a pub in Ayr. 3 pints before and after the game eased the pain

Remember trying it on in vain with some lassies at Cumbernauld Town centre before sashing it up on the way home :( :o

Glen Skivington testimonial 1993 - Vs Barrow. An amazin wee trip, got down there early bells and as usual the place was full of bears and jumping. It was a great time for us as a club and the feel good factor was as good as I remember! For such a small ground the atmosphere was imense and the bluebells are blue wrang out for 90 minutes.

Can't believe it was nearly 20 years ago!!!

my 2nd at ibrox, i was about 11
one of mark walters' early games

old boy behind me was saying some pretty shocking stuff about mr walters skin colour prior to the game.

walters plays a blinder, scores a couple (cant remember the right score i'm afraid)
same old boy just bellows out

"GON BLACK BEAUTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY"

pretty much collapsed with laughter at that point

Rangers vs Hibs at ibrox 95/96 season.

Laudrup (when he was actually fit that season) turning a Hibs defender inside out, did him so badly that the guy was actually running in the opposite direction from Laudrup by the time he crossed the ball. Sheer class

Rangers 2-1 Motherwell

A scottish cup tie at Ibrox. I think Phil O'Donnell scored for Motherwell & we came back with Mikhailichenko scoring two

The Motherwell fans had the whole of the bottom of the Broomloan Rd & it was a cracking atmosphere

I think Davie Cooper played for Motherwell. I may be wrong

A UEFA cup game about 4 years ago. We were getting beat 1 nil at home and with about a minute to play (can't remember who we were playing) Hemdani curls in a beauty from 25 yards.

Sticks in the mind as about a minute before the goal me and my mate left our front row seats in the East Enclosure to watch the dying minutes up the back and miss the rush.

After Hemdani scored he ran straight to wear we had been sitting to celebrate with the whole team and was in amongst the fans.

We just looked at each other and said "Oh f***".

a 1-0 (i think) away win at partic thistle a few years back.

just because the banter was great. Including the 2 wee lads in the thistle end who were doing the international "specky" gesture with their hands up at their eyes to the Bear with the Glasses on. The bear then shouts back at them "Aye, Im a specky bastard, MA TEAMS WINNIN!!"

1-0 home to Motherwell roundabout March 1987. Getting near to the end of the season, a nervy game decided when Super-Ally scored a trundler in a packed area with about 7 minutes to go, just when the tension was getting unbearable.

First game where I actually started believing we were going to win the league for the first time in years.

Rangers 2v2 Hearts February 98.

I was 17, getting worried we might not win the league for the first time in my own match going lifetime.

Gascoigne is having a stinker in the 2nd half and tried turning the same player 3 times and lost the ball. He then did it again when we are looking to get a winner.

I lost the rag, screamed at Gascoigne, to then be met with a volley abuse from the bears in the Copland around me to the point I nearly came to blows with a guy. At that age I didn't care about what Gazza had done for us, I only wanted my team to win and as far as I was concerned he wasn't helping.

Partick Thistle 1 Rangers 2

Gough header puts Gers one up on 37 minutes, Charnley makes it 1-1 with half an hour to go.

Into the dying seconds Stuart McCall slips a superb through ball to McCoist who rounds the keeper and slots in the winner.

Then jumps the adverts for good measure.

They dont call him super Ally for nothing.

One of the last games of the 00/01 season against Killie. Would have been 9 or 10 at the time. It finished 5-1, I'm sure, with scorers including Rod Wallace with his last ever Rangers goal.

It was also Ally McCoist's last ever game at Ibrox and for what seems like the whole of the second half the whole crowd was chanting his name for Bobby Williamson to bring him off the bench. Williamson refused to give in and didn't bring him on. I think he even sent Ally to warm up before telling him to sit back on the bench. :(

Always hated Willamson for that.

Game was played the same day as the FA Cup final where Liverpool scored too late goals to win against Arsenal and it was a lovely day. Think there was a 'heatwave' in Scotland around that time. :D

April 2007 at Easter Road, 3-3 where Adam scored 2

2 mates and I got the train through to Edinburgh early doors and we sat in the big patch of grass across the road from Waverly with our club banner laid out and drinking our cairyoot before heading to Middletons on Easter Rd. Watched Man Utd vs Everton and had a lot more booze and a good sing song before heading to the game

Really enjoyable game and a great atmosphere in the Bears end even though the league was already lost. Was at the front of the rear section and spent a lot of the game abusing a Hibee in a Republic top in their shed stand. Was a surprisingly good day out!

On the re-arranged game remember bieng excited because it was my first time on an old style terracing and having a half day from work. Got to Forfar and couldent find a pub that wasent packed so just headed to the ground where a steward gave us a map of the stadium :blink: Also mind a some guy nearly breaking Beasleys leg.

The 4-3 Livi game in December 02 was a strange one. Excellent for 50 minutes, 4-0 and took Ferguson off and we crumbled. Lost three goals and Barry Wilson I think, almost got an equaliser in stoppage time. PLGs first game at Motherwell always sticks out aswell because we should have been 5-6 up at half time. Played 4-2-3-1 which was also a bit strange. You rarely see Scottish teams play that formation.

I think the last game in the shed was a 3-0 defeat to Thistle after we'd already won the league? I may be wrong but I can remember us losing 3-0 there and I got skelped right on the side of the napper with a pie. Midweek also in 94 I think?

Speaking of torrential rain, I remember a game against Dundee Utd, think it finished 5-0 (and might've been the first home game of Walter's second spell in charge, though I may be wrong).

It rained so hard, the paint on the touchline at the main stand just ran off.

Also remember the pitch being an utter disgrace during the same period.

Another

Morton 0-2 Rangers, Jan 20th 1979. baltic and Cappielow was a skating rink.

Tom Forsyth was patrolling his beat and a Morton player attacked down the right. Jaws raced over to win the ball, however his momentum kept him going ...right onto an unsuspecting member of the Greenock Constabulary who was patrolling in front of the 'Cowshed 'area, with his back to the field of play.

The next thing we knew, Jaws had knocked the policeman over the boundary wall and onto the terracing.

Big Forsyth got up and red faced and sheepishly ran back to his defensiveposition. The poloiceman got up 'all crumpled looking' and with as miuch dignity as he could muster in the circumstances (none) :D to an loud ovation from both sets of supporters.

Pieter Huistra's last game at Falkirk, came off the bench in the last few minutes and scored the winner in the dying seconds to make it 3-2 to the bears (can't remember if we'd been 2-0 down?) - anyway the game sticks in my mind because my young brothers mate (BlueBaker on here) was listing the scores in the English matches, there was an Everton Liverpool score, a Man City Man U score and an Arsenal Tottenham score and he finished by saying it was 0 0 in the Leeds Derby game.

Much to my embarrassment now I spent the first twenty mins of the second half with a puzzled look on my face furiously trying to remember who the other team in Leeds where :)

The Ipswich Friendly in 2005.

I travelled up from London with a mate of mine on the London RSC Bus - my mate had no interest in Rangers or really football in general, he agreed to come along for the piss-up.

But when we got into the game he was absolutely blown away, spent the whole trip home lying in the aisle of the bus leading the singing, and then kept asking to go to another game.

It was then that I realised what Rangers is all about. :cool::cool:

sunk pint after pint as we struggled like feck... novo scored the only goal with about 10 mins left and i went totally mental... completely over-estimating the amount of bears there (infact, i think i was the only one)!

staggered home just in time to catch the last 5 mins of the tims drawing with falkirk (I THINK) at home.

i just knew then that the title was ours! :)
