WE look at some of the memorable moments that have happened on this day in the remarkable history of Rangers Football Club.

2015 – Rangers stormed to a comprehensive 5-1 win over Alloa to give them an immaculate start to the season and see the side net eight in their opening two games.

It was a frantic start to the game at Recreation Park, with three goals in the opening nine minutes. Two belonged to Rangers with James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn, from the spot, adding to their tallies.

Mark Warburton’s side were four-nil to the good at the break after Jason Holt and Kenny Miller added to the rout.

And Miller popped up again in the second-half with the Light Blues in full control of the game and Spurs loanee Nathan Oduwa spoiling the crowd with a range of trickery.

SUBS: Kelly, Ball, Hardie, Walsh

2008 – Rangers maintained their 100 per cent SPL record this season with a commanding victory over Hearts at Ibrox Stadium.

Despite the 2-0 scoreline this was a one-sided contest with Walter Smith’s side cruising to victory and Allan McGregor rarely troubled throughout the 90 minutes.

Lafferty and Boyd were the goal heroes for the Gers but it was new signing Mendes that stole the show with an excellent debut.

His performance was as you would expect; tidy, inventive and also full of graft.

2003 – All the talk before the game may have been about Barry Ferguson but this gutsy comeback display hammered home the message that Rangers are much more than a one-man team.

Ferguson has been keeping quiet on where he hopes his future lies and amid all the speculation it was unsurprising that he had one of his quietest games in a Light Blue jersey.

With the captain not performing at his peak, it was left to Mikel Arteta to pull the strings in the midfield and the young Spaniard netted his third goal of the season in another accomplished display.

With Michael Ball again impressive at the back and Michael Mols leading the line superbly up front, there were many positive aspects for Alex McLeish to enjoy following a difficult week for him and the club.

The Rangers boss had called for a much improved performance from his side following the disappointing 1-1 draw with FC Copenhagen in midweek and the Gers boss will have been pleased with the way his side fought back from losing an early goal to claim a vital win.
