I see Sutton is embarrassing himself again, he can’t get a good story of interest so he goes back to baiting the Gers, what was that team he managed in England? Crawley was it? If yes the name suits him “Crawler” my mate Lenny, is all he mostly says, “ Chris “ Lenny will not bring you back to Celtic, what say you 88?

Uman - best to ignore the bitter man and dinnae let him get under your skin.

Lincoln city.

Your right of course NNCato, but the man is a very dislikable person. So it was Lincoln City he managed, or mismanaged? I can’t wait for the day he’s lost for words.

Uman - this is the reason the bigot hates us and drives him - never ever let him forget it!

Rangers 6-1 Dunfermline Athletic

An injury-time penalty by Mikel Arteta clinched the SPL title for Rangers in an amazing afternoon at Ibrox.

Rangers were 5-1 up as the match entered the last few minutes, but with Celtic 4-0 up at Rugby Park and still playing, they knew the championship was not yet theirs.

But when Arteta stepped up to slot the ball past Derek Stillie after Neil McCann had been brought down, the Ibrox nerves were finally settled.

Michael Mols had given Rangers the lead, Jason Dair equalised, before Claudio Caniggia, Shota Arveladze, Ronald de Boer and Steven Thompson put Rangers on the road to the title.

Rangers got the early goal that they were looking for when De Boer and Caniggia unlocked the Dunfermline defence and Mols adjusted his feet superbly to direct the ball past Derek Stillie and into the net.

It could and should have been two a minute later when Caniggia delivered for De Boer, but the Dutchman somehow headed past from point-blank range.

But in 11 minutes, Dunfermline were level. Craig Brewster laid the ball into the path of Dair who crashed a 25-yard drive past the despairing dive of Stefan Klos.

Five minutes later, Rangers regained the initiative. Fernando Ricksen refused to give up the chase on the right and reaped the rewards when he got the benefit of a ricochet in the tackle with Barry Nicholson.

The ball fell kindly to Caniggia who placed the ball past Stillie.

Stillie denied Rangers a third after 24 minutes when Arveladze played in Mols, but this time the keeper got down to beat away the Dutchman's effort.

A minute later, it took a last-ditch challenge from Scott Wilson to halt Mols as he prepared to test Stillie again.

Rangers finally got the third goal on the half-hour mark when Lorenzo Amoruso managed to keep the ball in before delivering a perfect ball for Arveladze to flick the ball past Stillie with his head.

Stillie kept the score down twice in quick succession, saving from Mols and Amoruso as Rangers looked for more goals.

Stillie's first involvement in the second half was to field an Amoruso free kick after 49 minutes.

Moments later De Boer shot wide from a good position and then Rangers had a claim for a penalty turned down when Arveladze's shot was blocked by Chris McGroarty's elbow.

Amoruso missed a glorious chance to increase Rangers' lead when he blasted the ball over from 10 yards after Stillie was penalised for picking up a passback.

At the other end, Klos produced an amazing flying save from Brewster as Dunfermline caught Rangers on the counter attack.

In the end the best team won.

Raise your glasses to Alex McLeish and the squad

De Boer made it 4-1 with a superb header in 65 minutes to hand Rangers the initiative in the title race again.

Two minutes later, Thompson squeezed the ball over the line after superb play by Neil McCann on the left.

In 70 minutes Thompson headed just wide as Rangers sought to wrap up the title.

In 89 minutes, Thompson again came within inches of making the title safe for Rangers, but his header came back off the angle of post and bar and landed in the arms of Stillie.

But then came that late penalty and an ice-cool Arteta did the business from the spot.

Remember it well as I won £500 with Sunderland, Hull and Rangers winning their leagues - thought my line was gubbed!

Amazing post Cato.

I actually like listening to Sutton making a tit of himself, he's very entertaining. Keep it up Sutton.

14 Apr 2019 08:45:29
Sutton, Stewart, Walker et al should be stuck in a room, locked away and forced to watch the Rangers 6 Dunfermline 1 video endlessly. Talk about purgatory for them.

NNCato
You’ll never die in an asylum with a memory like that, you certainly know your Rangers.

14 Apr 2019 12:56:38
Nice cut and paste Cato, well done.

14 Apr 2019 12:57:49
Ulsterman - lolol

I am already in one lol

I wish I had a memory like that - this is an old transcript I had on my laptop from way back - it summed up the day perfectly.

One thing it did do was bring back how good these players were - Helicopter Sunday is something that that lot in the east end only dream about but will never emulate.

14 Apr 2019 13:51:16

14 Apr 2019 17:23:30
Ulsterman - I have been to NI on many occasions very very friendly place especially Belfast, which always reminds me of Glasgow - the best wee town in the world.

14 Apr 2019 19:34:04
Cato - I’m a Belfast guy, my wife’s is a Shankill road girl, though we now live in posh Carrickfergus, you’re right Belfast and Glasgow are alike, when I’m over I stay in Airdrie, great family great people.
