John GreigMBE (born 11 September 1942) is a Scottish former professional footballer, who played as a defender. He spent his entire career with Rangers, as a player, manager and director.

Greig played his youth football with United Crossroads Boys Club in Edinburgh. Under the supervision of Eric Gardiner, and supported Hearts as a boy. It is unknown if Hearts showed any interest in signing him. Bob McAuley signed Greig for Rangers and despite his initial reluctance John Greig autographs did as instructed by his father. However, after viewing a match between Rangers and Hibernian at Easter Road. Where he witnessed them beating Hibs 6–1, he convinced the move was right.

A determined, forceful player, recognised for his great leadership qualities; Greig made 755 official appearances for Rangers (498 in the domestic league, 72 in the Scottish Cup, a club record 121 in the League Cup and 64 in European tournaments). He scored 120 goals for the club and won three domestic trebles. He, actually started his career with Rangers as a forward, prior to being moved back to midfield. Playing initially alongside another Rangers legend in Jim Baxter—and finally to left back. It was therefore in those initial years that he scored the majority of his goals for the club.

Greig was captain when Rangers won the European Cup Winners Cup in 1972 beating Dynamo Moscow 3–2 in Barcelona. Although Greig’s an enormously successful playing career, his captaincy coincided with a period of sustained success for Rangers’ city rivals, Celtic, from the late 1960s until the mid-1970s. Greig’s fortitude during that period further cemented his reputation as one of Rangers’ most celebrated captains.

 

Rangers 1972 legends

Greig’s playing career ended in May 1978 and appointed manager of Rangers, replacing Jock Wallace. The club failed to win the league championship during Greig’s time as manager, finishing no higher than the second place achieved in 1978–79. Greig’s team had come close to winning a domestic treble and performed well in Europe in that first season. Rangers reached the quarter-final of the 1978–79 European Cup, defeating Italian champions Juventus and becoming the first club to win in European club competition at PSV’s Philips Stadion, before eventual elimination to Cologne.

Also the partial compensation of success in domestic cup competitions, with two Scottish Cups and two League Cups secured over the course of Greig’s five full seasons as manager. Furthermore, Greig was also responsible for signing Rangers’ greatest ever goal scorer Ally McCoist autographs from Sunderland. However, these were isolated achievements, and Greig—under intense pressure from the Scottish media. Rangers supporters and the club’s directors—resigned in October 1983, replaced by the returning Wallace.

 

 

Derek Johnstone

Derek Joseph Johnstone (born 4 November 1953) is a Scottish former football player and manager.

Johnstone played mainly for Rangers winning 14 major trophies during his career. He also had a spell at Chelsea and a brief stint in management with Partick Thistle. He mainly played as a striker but could also perform in central defence, and in midfield. Uniquely, he was selected to play in defence, midfield, and attack for Scotland.

 

Johnstone signed for Rangers as a schoolboy in 1968. He turned professional in 1970 and made his debut on 19 September 1970, aged 16 years and 319 days. Johnstone scored two goals in that match, a 5–0 victory against Cowdenbeath.

Johnstone thrust himself into the limelight just five weeks later when his header secured a 1–0 victory over Celtic in the 1970 Scottish League Cup Final. Besides, Derek Johnstone autographs was still 16 at the time. But the faith shown in his ability by manager Willie Waddell paid off handsomely, as Rangers claimed their first major trophy for just over four years.
