THIRTY years ago today Ray Wilkins scored a goal that the Rangers support will never forget.

His stunning volley came in an Old Firm match that saw the Light Blues recover from a goal down to romp to a 5-1 victory at Ibrox.

Wilkins, who sadly passed away in 2018, was joined on the scoresheet by Kevin Drinkell, Mark Walter and Ally McCoist, who grabbed a double in front of a delighted home support.

In a previous interview with RangersTV he said: “The supporters would often mention it. I’m not overly concerned about who it was against because it was just great to score for Rangers as I didn’t get many.

“It came from a long throw, there was a flick on, it was headed out and it‘s either one of those that flies into the back of the net or it goes over the back of the stand.

“Fortunately for me, it ended up in the back of the net. It was a wonderful moment and one that I do cherish.

“We beat them 4-1 at Ibrox that season as well which was a fabulous day. But that day we played some fabulous football and really did take Celtic to task as well.

“The problem with scoring a goal like that is that you can wear yourself out celebrating and you’re no use to the team after it! So from that point of view you have to just calm yourself down and get back on with the game.”
