Graeme Souness is something of a Rangers legend.
The Scot joined in 1986, taking up a player-manager role, and would end up spending five years at the club. It is mainly in the dug-out where he is most remembered though – he won the league cup five times and the league four times overall (one of each as a player/manager), helping the Ibrox outfit to dominate football during that time north of the border.
Still, there remained some fantastic moments on the pitch itself for the former Liverpool boss, one of which came against Aberdeen in 1986. He scored his first goal for the club with a fantastic effort from outside the box that gave the opposition goalkeeper no chance – Sir Alex Ferguson was still manager of the Dons at the time.
Is Graeme Souness a Rangers legend?
The clip of his strike has been shared by Rangers’ official Twitter account as it happened 34 years ago on Tuesday. The fans of the Glasgow club have clearly enjoyed the video – one fan even called him a “hero” – as you can see by some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Govan front that day. First time I had seen Ibrox properly rocking after years of mediocrity.
Felt like an awakening that day. We were back and meant business. https://t.co/1Qgwt5Uk8N

We were brilliant that day, dominated and bullied Aberdeen all over the pitch. Atmosphere was akin to the old firm weeks before. Great days.
