Last January, Rangers paraded Jimmy Nicholl beside Spongebob Squarepants as they kicked off a busy transfer window.
12 months on and it is Steven Davis and Jermain Defoe taking their bow alongside Steven Gerrard.
What a difference a year can make in football.
When Jimmy Nic came in to assist Graeme Murty, the club were a shambles from top to bottom.
Things have finally turned a corner and now the Gers are positioned to challenge for the title.
The signings of Davis and Defoe are a serious show of intent by Gerrard and director of football Mark Allen as they aim to win the league for the first time in eight years.
Two quality additions to a squad already pushing Celtic all the way and putting them under serious pressure.
Despite a strong start after last season’s winter break, the season ended in disaster for us as Aberdeen secured second in the league, but this time around there is a sense that even finishing second would be a disappointing end to the campaign.
Of the six players signed last January, only half are still at Ibrox – Jamie Murphy, Greg Docherty and Glenn Middleton.
Jason Cummings, Sean Goss and Russell Martin were all sent packing after disappointing loan stints.
With more than three weeks until this year’s window slams shut, there could still me more arrivals at Ibrox.
Glen Kamara and Jordan Jones might,
according to the Daily Mail, find themselves at Ibrox six months earlier than expected after signing pre-contracts.
Adding Davis and Defoe to effectively replace Ovie Ejaria and Umar Sadiq is an incredible upgrade in quality.
After the strides made in the last 12 months, it leaves you wondering just where Gerrard will have this side next year.
