Sandy Jardine - Rangers Legend

Sandy Jardine. Rangers legend, of that there is no doubt. A true great of the club in every sense.

Sandy Jardine was no ordinary full back. He was a world class right back. What you could term now as a modern day full back actually. He was quick, had an engine of a Rolls Royce too.

He was an athlete, he marauded up and down that wing, scored goals, defended impeccably and gave his heart and soul to Rangers Football Club.

He was at Ibrox for sixteen years as a player. That in itself shows you how good he was and how consistent he managed to be.

I caught the later years of his Ibrox career. I remember thinking, (when he left to go to Hearts) well that's Sandy Jardine's career pretty much over.

Eh, no. He carried on playing for another six years in a very good Hearts team!

He was a member of the Cup Winners Cup winning team in our centenary year. His goal agaisnt Bayern Munich in the semi final is one of the most famous goals im our clubs history and that must've been so sweet for him as Bayern had defeated us in the final of that competition five years previous. A team that a young Sandy Jardine wad part of.

When you have a stand named after you, you are a true colossus a proper legend.

Sandy Jardine. Always missed, never forgotten.
