IT was August 4, 1979, and Davie Cooper was about to score a goal that would go down in Scottish football history.

The skilful winger nipped past several Celtic defenders, playing some keepie-uppy on the way, to put the ball in the net for Rangers in the 78th minute of the Dryburgh Cup Final.

It was a glorious moment - and it went on to be voted by Rangers fan as the club’s best ever goal.

Super Coop made more than 400 appearances for Rangers in his 12-year stint at Ibrox, winning three league titles and ten separate cup honours.

He sadly died 25 years ago, after suffering a brain haemorrhage at the age of just 39, and his death caused shockwaves throughout Scottish football.

The young apprentice printer was courted by several clubs including Coventry City, Crystal Palace, Motherwell and Rangers before signing for Clydebank in 1974.

He was eventually transferred to Rangers for a £100,000 fee in the summer of 1977 and he finished his playing career at Motherwell, where he made 150 appearances.
