Davie Cooper - Best Bit of Business

The best bit of business in my eyes ever done by Glasgow Rangers Football Club was the signing of David Cooper  8th June 1977, cost us £100,000 from Clydebank.

Cooper was born in Hamilton and attended the games as a youngster with his brother and his Father, he was 21 years old when he joined Rangers.

Davie appeared in 52 of Rangers' 53 matches in his season  1977–78 , as Jock Wallace's side won the domestic treble he went on to win many more Honours at the Club.

Davie had an eye for a goal and scored 49 goals but he had numerous assists in his time at Ibrox, he left in 1989.

I was privileged to seen Davie in the flesh many a times and was in awe of his skills and ball  control, he scored some wonderful goals, one that always stands out for me was his keepie uppie goal against Celtic in the old Drybrough Cup Final in 1979 which we won 3 -1.

He was nicknamed the 'Moody Blue' by the press, truth was he was just an ordinary everyday bloke, who was quite and very humble lad, he played Football with a smile on his face and he lit up 50,000 fans ever home match at Ibrox.

When asked about to describe the highlight of his time at Rangers, he simply responded "I played for the team I loved".
