It is fourteen years to the day since one of the most iconic days in Rangers history. It’s fourteen years to the day since Helicopter Sunday.
It’s incredible to think that the day the helicopter changed direction is almost a decade and a half old. It is a day which Gers fans hold very close to their hearts, and one of the most iconic title victories of all time.
Needless to say, there’s been plenty of reminiscing about that special day at Easter Road, and Fir Park, on social media.
On this Day in 2⃣0⃣0⃣5⃣…
Rangers won the league title in the most dramatic fashion on Helicopter Sunday! 🚁🏆

One of the very few tickets I've bothered to keep.

Every single Rangers fan, young and old, can tell you exactly where they were that day as Rangers picked up the title.
It was that special a day in Rangers history. It’s not just because of the fact we won the title, but it was the manner in which it happened.
Rangers were grinding out a 1-0 win at Easter Road thanks to a Nacho Novo goal. Celtic were looking comfortable at 1-0 at Fir Park. We needed to better their result.
Then, in the dying stages, future Celtic striker Scott MacDonald hammered in a late equaliser. It sent Rangers fans into delirium. And if that wasn’t enough, the Australian scored again to put Motherwell 2-1 up.
And as you can see, Helicopter Sunday remains very special to Rangers fans everywhere.
