A Season to be Cheerful: Glasgow Rangers 1992/93
By (author) Jeff Holmes
1992/93: It was the season to be cheerful if you were a Rangers fan. Walter Smith assembled a squad full of courage, and no shortage of skill. A combination of both qualities would see the Light Blues complete arguably the finest season in the club’s long and illustrious history. The Treble of Premier League, Scottish Cup and League Cup was secured – and a 44-game unbeaten run meant Rangers ruled the roost in Scotland. But it was in the first-ever Champions League where Rangers came within a whisker of making their mark. Ten matches unbeaten – often achieved with an injury-hit side – would have been enough to make the final most other years, but Marseille, with the help of some friends, prevented Rangers enjoying their finest hour. The chief protagonists of season 1992/93, including Ian Durrant, John ‘Bomber’ Brown and Dave McPherson, help tell the story of a campaign that still occupies a prominent place in the minds of Rangers fans. Was 1992/93 Rangers’ greatest season in living memory?
