Trivia

  Largest ever attendance at Ibrox of 118,567 at New Year fixture against Celtic - still a British record for a league match. Very overcrowded though and lots of injuries sustained.

  This was the start of Rangers' first 'unofficial' 9IAR titles - not always recognised because of the intervening war years and differing league competitions.
