The beginnings of my passion for Rangers

Always remember the Adidas shirt, three white stripes on each side of the shoulders. European nights at Ibrox Park, the headed goal, almost dropping to the floor Mark Hateley against Lyngby of Denmark. And what about the "Battle of Britain" against Leeds United. Britain. The first team to play in the Champions League. Elland Road fell into silence after the goal by Hateley e McCoist header.
Winning 1-0 in Moscow, with the shot of Ferguson, who seemed just would not go into the bow, following the rebound in a CSKA defender. Scott Nisbet's goal against Bruges, the ball makes a path that confuses everyone and 2-1, Verlinden, Bruges goalkeeper, lying on the floor. The speed and accuracy of Ian Durrant, a goal against Marseille. When a great "shot" Durrant cross after a corner kick by Trevor Steven. Ian has always been characterized by long distance to score goals. Super Ally goals, who since 1986 had ever goals against Celtic. When I was waiting for the Old Firm, expecting one or more goals McCoist. The party with Mark Hateley. This defense with the illustrious and glorious Richard Gough, Dave McPherson, John Brown, David Robertson.
At that time reconstructing the events translated into spanish, french magazine France Football, watching videos, those years there was no Youtube, or waiting for someone to pass the television channel goals. Memories and more memories to share with you all, that shaped my love for Rangers, its people and its culture.

A team who never reach the finals, failing against Marseille.
Good luck the next Century...
