VIDEO: Rangers 2 Bayern Munich 0, ECWC semi-final 1972

Exactly 40 years ago, Rangers achieved one of their greatest ever results when they defeated Bayern Munich 2-0 at Ibrox to progress to the final of the European Cup Winners’ Cup. The Germans would go on to dominate European and international football for years to come, but in front of a passionate 80,000 crowd at Ibrox they were reduced to arguing among themselves.

You can read all about the game from the perspective of players and fans in my book Follow On: 50 Years of Rangers in Europe but here’s some TV footage – the commentary is in German unfortunately.

From the same match, a bit of cheek (or disrespect, depending on how you view it) from  Willie Johnston

And finally, the Ibrox crowd in full voice
