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

2009 – A majestic second-half strike from Nacho Novo gave Rangers a 1-0 win in the 2009 Homecoming Scottish Cup final and secured a domestic double in the process.

After a grueling season every one of Walter Smith’s men had to dig deep in to their energy reserves to beat a Falkirk team that pushed them all the way in the last game of 2008/09.

After a close first half, Smith made a change to his line up, bringing the little Spaniard on for Kris Boyd and what an impact he made.

After only 36 seconds on the pitch he received the ball 35 yards from goal and lashed a right-foot shot which dipped and swerved before hitting the net and leaving his countryman Dani Mallo clutching at thin air.

It was a stunning goal and it was just what the doctor ordered for Rangers side in need of an injection.
