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

2009 – Nerves were shredded and tempers flared as Rangers achieved the win they needed over Aberdeen on this day nine years ago. Kenny Miller inspired the victory when his cross was put into the Aberdeen net by Richard Foster and then headed a great goal from a Novo cross.

The match was marred with controversy as Charlie Mulgrew and Madjid Bougherra were both sent off in the first half by referee Stuart Dougal, who was taking charge of his last match.

2004 – Rangers took on Dunfermline in the last game of the 2003/04 season in a tight encounter, coming from a goal behind to win despite Michael Mols being sent off for receiving two yellow cards in his last game at the club.

Dunfermline took the lead through Gary Demspsey from a free kick, before excellent goals by Fernando Ricksen and Chris Burke put Rangers in front. Rangers went 3:1 ahead thanks to a penalty won and scored by Ross McCormack before Dempsey scored his second from a free kick for the match to finish 3:2.

1998 – Twenty years ago today, Rangers lost the Scottish Cup Final 2:1 to Hearts with Ally McCoist scoring the only goal for the Light Blues. Emotions were high at the end of the match as five of the starting eleven, stalwarts of the Nine in a Row campaign, were playing their last ever game for the club.

Ian Durrant and Ally McCoist would go on to join Kilmarnock, Andy Goram would sign for Notts County, Stuart McCall moved to Bradford City and Brian Laudrup signed for Chelsea. Richard Gough left to join Kansas City Wizards in the MLS having returned to the club earlier in the season.
