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

On this day in 2016, the Light Blues extended their lead at the top of the Championship to 14 points as they cruised to a 2-0 win at Ibrox over Raith Rovers.

With Hibernian losing away to Queen of the South on the same day, the Gers did their job and goals from Harry Forrester and Lee Wallace gave them the victory and a commanding lead at the top of the table.

Forrester netted his second Gers goal on 26 minutes, when he curled a classy shot home and the captain added to the tally just after the break, as he combined with Billy King to side foot beyond Kevin Cuthbert.

In 2008, Rangers made it eleven wins on the bounce with a gritty, battling display against Aberdeen at Ibrox.

A goal from Aberdeen’s Steve Lovell stunned the home support after only 27 minutes but a fantastic equaliser from Christian Dailly was to prove pivotal.

A Charlie Adam header minutes after the interval was a relief but Kris Boyd made sure of the win on 82 minutes when he saw his penalty saved by Derek Soutar but rattled home the rebound in his usual style

Part one of a dramatic two legged affair against Real Zaragoza took place at Ibrox on this day in 1967. The Gers won the first leg by two goals to nil, thanks to Dave Smith and Alex Willoughby.

In the second leg, which was held on the 22 March, the Spanish side won 1-0, through a Laperta strike and a Santos penalty. Smith missed a penalty and the match ended with the scored tied, meaning the winner would be decided by a coin toss.

John Greig and Scot Symon picked tails after already picking correctly at the start of the game and at extra time and were correct for the third time. Greig was later presented with the famous coin by trainer Dave Kinnear as the Gers booked their place in the semi final.

In 2014, Lee McCulloch’s dramatic injury-time penalty kick secured all three points for Rangers and kept the club’s remarkable away run in League One going against East Fife .

After a rather flat 90 minutes in which the Light Blues were not always at their best it was the home side’s Pat Clarke who was guilty of a clumsy challenge on David Templeton inside the box.

With the stadium already emptying referee Alan Muir pointed to the spot and super skipper McCulloch stepped up to send Greg Paterson the wrong way with an ice cool finish.
