PRIOR to the Premiership fixture against St Mirren at Ibrox Stadium on August 12 club legend John Greig was pleasantly surprised when he was presented with a stunning gift to mark his 60 years of service to Rangers.

Former manager Walter Smith made the presentation in the boardroom and director of football Mark Allen, managing director Stewart Robertson, director of finance and administration Andrew Dickson, chairman Dave King, director Alastair Johnston, global ambassador Richard Gough and directors John Bennett and Graeme Park were also in attendance.

Nine in a Row boss Smith said: “John, of course, is regarded as being the Greatest Ever Ranger and you can see why when you look back over the past six decades.

“Not only did he make over 800 appearances for the club as a player, lifting the European Cup Winners Cup’ as captain and winning three Trebles, he also went on to become the Rangers manager and worked behind the scenes in the PR and youth departments before becoming a director.

“He is now the Honorary Life President and if anyone deserves that role and title it is John. He is a great man and I was delighted to be asked to make the presentation to him.”

Where to start with the draw at Motherwell. A crazy game especially the first-half. Great to see Kyle score a couple. His second was superb with a great header from a superb cross. Some good counter-attack play and was impressed by Barisic and Ejaria.

As for the defending. not much that Shagger could do for the first and second but some of the defending looked shaky and the marking was poor on a number of occasions. Hopefully a one-off. Anyway away in Europe on Thursday - I'll be content with a draw there - and then at Septic Park next Sunday.

Off to the pub later to watch Chelsea. Come on Chelsea!

Thought Rangers looked leggy for much of the second half and never got control of the game. Shame about the equaliser in injury time but maybe a lesson for Gerrard too. He left 2 strikers on when it was pretty obvious we needed to strengthen in the middle and give the defence a bit more protection

big week coming up - nervous now

Always disappointing to lose to those from the dark side. Thought that Rangers defended well and kept their shape well for most of the game. Shagger had a very good game in goal. As for the Celtic goal, it looked like a foul on the Rangers player during the build-up. The 'Gers didn't create that much up front but there are signs of improvement. Certainly have a fighting attitude.

I watched the game in a pub and the sound was down so didn't have to listen to Andy Walker which was good as he talks a lot of drivel. A shame that Morelos didn't deck the legoe eater.

Rangers were terrific tonight a 2-2 result away to Valencia would be considered an achievement by many teams. Thought the Gers competed well throughout the game and got a deserved draw despite a couple of near misses from Valencia right at the end. Having said that, Rangers did have a chance to nick the 3 points too.

Still making progress under Gerrard, lots to be proud of - just a pity we didn't try to have a go at Celtic the other week.

A great result for the 'Gers and against a very good Spanish team. I only saw a few minutes as was watching the Chelsea game. Will catch up with the highlights of the Rangers match later. As you say, still making progress but lots to be proud of.

A great day yesterday for the 'Gers. And with the Great Unwashed losing as well and Hearts dropping points the day before. A few men and women from the Armed Services at Ibrox yesterday. So good to see Rangers support our Armed Services. A few pictures were taken including the one below. Class.
