2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the greatest victory in the history of Rangers Football Club when, on 24th May 1972, Rangers won the European Cup Winners Cup in dramatic style in Barcelona. That evening in Spain will forever live in the hearts of Rangers fans as their greatest day.

Now, along with the key players involved, Tom Miller recalls the campaign that culminated in Rangers winning their only major European trophy.

Willie Johnston recalls the revolutionary tactics that served them well on their travels, starting against Rennes in France. John Greig revisits the bizarre events of the match in Lisbon when Rangers thought they had been eliminated by Sporting. Alex McDonald claims he still has the bruises from his exertions in the quarter-final against Torino, and Derek Parlane tells of his shock at being called into the starting line-up against Bayern Munich just before his 19th birthday.

And for the final itself, Peter McCloy – who played every competitive game for Rangers in that historic season – talks about his teammates and how that special chemistry delivered the cup winning formula against Russian giants Moscow Dynamo.

This is the first time these Rangers legends have shared their memories together, and it’s essential reading from a golden era in the history of Rangers Football Club.
