So now for my Rangers XI. It’s again made up of players I’ve seen in my lifetime, the formation is 4-4-2.
GK: Stefan Klos
Not an easy decision but he just gets the nod ahead of Andy Goram. A top-class keeper who won the Champions League with Dortmund yet, amazingly, was never capped by Germany.
RB: Gary Stevens
A consistent performer and England international.
CB: Richard Gough
Inspirational captain of Rangers dominant team of the 90’s. Also captain of this side.
CB: Carlos Cuellar
Played at Ibrox more recently, an uncompromising defender who put in some outstanding performances during his short time in Scotland.
LB: Artur Numan
Dutch international and one of the most consistent performers during Dick Advocaat’s reign.
RM: Trevor Steven
More successful in his first spell at the club. Fine passer and cross of the ball, formed an excellent partnership with Stevens at Everton and Rangers.
CM: Ian Durrant
Dynamic box-to-box midfielder who was always a goal threat. Would surely have gone onto greater things in England or abroad had he not sustained a horrific knee injury in the infamous clash with Aberdeen.
CM: Giovanni Van Bronckhorst
A class act – a sweet left foot and very capable when shooting from distance. Enjoyed a great career, moving onto Arsenal and Barcelona.
LM: Davie Cooper
One of the easier choices. Gifted wide player who beat opponents through skill, rather than pace. Could also strike a ball with a fair bit of power.
STR: Ally McCoist
Another obvious selection. Record-breaking goalscorer who thrived in Old Firm encounters.
STR: Mark Hateley
The ideal partner for McCoist – powerful, good in the air and not bad on the ground either.
