Just to add a little more trivia

 

last to score in the old wooden SQUARE goal posts :P

Nah, sorry, As much as I'd love that to be true, Cowdenbeath beat them in the League Cup at Ibrox in the 1949/50 season.

That stat was in the Record the following morning , I 've never heard anyone come up with the Cowden thingy either. I'll take your word for it !

Record also stated that Ally McLeod was the first player to score 4 at Ibrox against Rangers , but Alan Gilzean had done it a decade before !

Doesn’t count if he was only on loan, never on the books! Well that’s the way I see it

In fairness, how many loanees have we had over the years from the EPL, and how many have gone on to play in the EPL?

Can't be too many...

Off the top of my head I can only think of Charlie Adam

For this reason maybe it’s worth Dummett being in?

We’ve had O’Brien, Newton, Drury and Campbell off the top of my head, none who’ve come anywhere close to breaking into the EPL. What Dummett achieved was excellent, and who knows, without his year at us, maybe his career would have taken a different path.

We took 144 Supporter's Buses to Fir Park for the Cup Tie in 1977.

It was estimated our total support that day was 14000.

Vic Davidson is wank and a cheating diving cnut.
