ON THIS DAY in 2012 a Rangers Legends side took on AC Milan Glorie at a packed Ibrox in a special match.

As scripts go it would have been harder to write a better one. He was the manager of the club, striker, goal scorer, legend.

To some it might seem unbelievable, incredible, too far-fetched. But for those fans who grew up watching Ally McCoist it was simply inevitable.

With the opening half ending goalless Walter Smith looked around for changes and turned to his former striker and assistant boss.

McCoist replacing Michael Mols might have led to an expectation for less mobility up front. Not so.

Just two minutes in to the second period the ball broke to Giovanni van Bronckhorst on the left and his pinpoint cross found the head of McCoist.

It was no simple finish from close range though as the striking legend had to outmanoeuvre Alessandro Costacurta first.

So impressive was the movement and finish that it drew a shake of the hand, and head, from Milan legend Paolo Maldini.

It brought the loudest roar of a fantastic night as a near capacity crowd lapped up the wide array of talent gracing the pitch.
