In 2010, Rangers needed Kenny Miller to climb off the bench to score a stunning late winner for Rangers as they scraped a 2-1 win at Hamilton in the dying moments of the game. The striker was one of the key players rested by manager Walter Smith ahead of facing Manchester United in the Champions League.

Miller came off the bench with 18 minutes left and grabbed the goal that counted 60 seconds from the end to clinch a crucial victory. Nikica Jelavic also marked his full debut with a goal inside five minutes and Madjid Bougherra scored at the wrong end.

In 1926, Rangers took on Motherwell  at Ibrox in front of 18,000 fans, winning 2:0. The goals came in the first minute from Cunningham and in almost the last kick of the game from Archibald to give the Steelmen their first defeat of the season.

Rangers were only eight years old when they took on Govan in the Scottish Cup first round in 1880, winning 4:1. Six years later in 1886, Rangers again took on Govan, this time winning 9:1. The tie was played at Rangers’ former home of Kinning Park in front of just 500 spectators.
