50 Years of Rangers in Europe
For fifty years, Rangers Football Club have been involved in European competition against the best that the Continent has to offer. Since 1956/57, the Light Blues have contested the Cup-Winners' Cup, Fairs Cup, UEFA Cup and of course that most coveted of club trophies, the European Cup itself. Generations of Ibrox patrons have feasted on clashes with the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus, AC and Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and Manchester United, and this book recalls each European campaign - the triumphs, the disappointments, the great players and the epic clashes. Many supporters will still remember the late spring of 1972, when Rangers defeated Dinamo Moscow to take the European Cup-Winners Cup; later generations will have their own treasured memories of dramatic European nights at Ibrox. All these are recalled here in vivid detail by author Robert McElroy, a lifelong fan of the club. With many wonderful colour illustrations and statistics to supplement the text, this is the ultimate guide to the Gers' European adventures.

Ten Days That Shook Rangers
From humble beginnings Rangers have become one of the biggest and most successful clubs in the game. The Ibrox trophy room is crammed with reminders of a glorious past, a past that includes fifty-one league championship wins (a world record) and many fine European campaigns, crowned by the capture of the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1972. But life at Rangers has not just been a litany of success. The Ibrox club has experienced its fair share of controversy, disappointment and even tragedy. This unique book looks at ten of the most shocking days in the history of a great Scottish institution. The ten authors, a mixture of fans, academics and journalists, examine these events without fear or favour. and often arrive at surprising conclusions. The subjects covered. The boardroom coup of 1947 that changed the character of Rangers forever. The astonishing lifetime ban on Willie Woodburn. The year Rangers should have won the European Cup. The brutal sacking of manager Scot Symon, a Rangers legend. What really caused the Ibrox disaster of 1971. The infamous 1980 Scottish Cup final when Old Firm fans fought a massed battle on the Hampden pitch. The seismic excitement caused by the arrival of Graeme Souness. The historic signing of Mo Johnston. How Rangers capitulated to an anti-Rangers (and anti-Protestant) media in the Donald Findlay affair. The fallout from Dick Advocaat's costly regime and the impact made by his successor, Alex McLeish.

To Barcelona and Beyond: The Men Who Made Rangers Champions of Europe
Of the 107 trophies Glasgow Rangers boast, only one was claimed on foreign shores. The triumph over Moscow Dynamo in the 1972 European Cup Winners' Cup final in the famous Nou Camp Stadium is the achievement three decades of Rangers teams have tried, and failed to emulate. "To Barcelona and Beyond" charts the twists and turns of that famous European campaign and tells the real story of the men who made it happen. Through in-depth interviews with the Nou Camp heroes and comprehensive profiles, this unique collection of tales reveals how each of the 11 homegrown players found themselves at the centre of on of Scotland's rare European triumphs and just where football's rollercoaster took them in the 33 years that followed. With one chapter dedicated to each of the 11 medal winners, the author discovers which player would have walked into Brazil's World Cup team, what influence Rod Stewart and Bill Cosby had on one post-Barcelona career. The class of '72 included Scottish player of the year winners Sandy Jardine, John Greig, David Smith and Derek Johnstone, as well as fellow internationals Peter McCloy, Alfie Conn, Colin Stein, Alex McDonald and Willie Johnston. They fused together on a May night in Spain to create football history. Each has a fascinating story to tell of the ups and downs that life in the Old Firm goldfish bowl created. For the generations of football fans too young to have witnessed the success of '72, "To Barcelona and Beyond" is an unmissable guide to the men who conquered Europe with Rangers. For the tens of thousands who celebrated all those years ago, it represents an emotional stroll down memory lane.
