Rangers devastated by passing of club legend Davie Wilson, 85

Rangers have been left devastated by the passing of club legend Davie Wilson at the age of 85.

The former Ibrox winger lived the dream by playing for the club he loved and is an Ibrox Hall of Famer after making a stellar contribution across 11 seasons at the club.

Part of the team who made the 1961 European Cup Winners’ Cup Final against Fiorentina, Davie Wilson made his Rangers debut January 1957 and went on to play 373 times for the club.

A goalscoring wide player, Wilson was a popular player amongst supporters and chipped in a very impressive 158 goals for the team he loved.

Playing under the legendary Scott Symon, Davie Wilson spent 11 seasons impressing at Ibrox and was said to have “loved Rangers with every breath” [Rangers].

In total, the legendary wide man won 11 trophies with Rangers including four League titles, five Scottish Cups and two League Cups.

Alongside his status in the Rangers Hall of Fame, Davie is also in the Dundee United Hall of Fame and in the Scotland Hall of Fame.

Wilson’s prolific scoring record for Rangers continued into Scotland duty, where he scored 10 goals in 22 caps for his country.

Everyone at Rangers News would like to extend their deepest condolences to the family of Davie Wilson on this sad day and take a moment to recognise the contribution the winger made to the club we all love.

It’s been a sad season for the Rangers family as the club have also mourned the passing of two other club legends across this campaign.

Legendary former manager and Mr Rangers Walter Smith sadly passed away in October 2021 at the age of 73, whilst legendary kitman Jimmy Bell suddenly passed away in the latter part of the season.

Here are some of the nicest tributes to Jimmy with the kit man’s passing still raw around Ibrox.
