Rangers fans have raved about footage released on the club’s Twitter, of former England international Gary Stevens scoring against Motherwell during the 1990/91 season.
Stevens was a quality operator who played a big role in a famous period in the club’s history.
Making close to 200 league appearances at right-back across six years at Ibrox, he won six league titles, a Scottish Cup and two League Cups.
He wasn’t a prolific goalscorer by any means, but he netted a brace against Motherwell at Fir Park on 17 November 1990, and one of his strikes has been chosen as the ‘Goal of the Day.’
The footage is suitably grainy, but it shows Stevens being played in behind the home side’s defence and taking one touch to control on his chest before dinking a finish beyond the keeper and in off the right post.
It was the pick of the efforts from a 4-2 victory, with Mo Johnston and Mark Walters the other goalscorers.
The throwback has plenty of Bears reminiscing about Stevens’ contributions, with some suggesting the club haven’t had a right-back of his calibre in the 25 years since his departure.
Here’s a selection of reactions to the footage from Twitter:
What a fantastic full back he was, great player.
