Trivia

  The Clyde Tunnel opened in July 1963 which improved transport links to Ibrox.

  After the replay of the Scottish Cup Final against Celtic, Jim Baxter (pictured below) stuffed the match ball up his shirt and later gave it to a new member of the team. The SFA insisted that the ball should be returned, and Rangers sent them a ball, but possibly not the match ball.
