Six days later he struck a double in a 2-2 friendly draw with Arsenal at Highbury and that instant impact set the tone for his time at Ibrox.
A stereotypical flying winger, Scott was a menace on the flanks and a distinguished crosser of the ball.
Brought in as a replacement for Willie Waddell from Camelon Thistle, he went straight into the team and stayed there for almost eight years.
He stood out for his strange running style and despite moving at great speed, his left arm barely moved as it hung by his side.
A scorer of 108 goals in 331 games, Scott won four titles, one Scottish Cup and two League Cups in his time with Gers.
He was also in the team that lost the 1961 European Cup Winners’ Cup final over two legs to Italian side Fiorentina.
Scott won 11 of his 16 Scotland caps whilst at Ibrox and joined Everton in 1963, where he won a further championship and FA Cup.
A scorer of 12 European goals for Rangers, Scott sadly passed away in September 2002 aged just 64.
