RONNIE MCKINNON OF RANGERS F.C., 1972 ECWC 25TH ANNIVERSARY LONGINES WATCH

engraved verso RONNIE McKINNON CUP WINNERS CUP 1972 25TH ANNIVERSARY WATCH LIMITED EDITION No. 14/30, and with Rangers crest, on black leather strap, in pouch with spare strap

Note: This wristwatch is one of 30 awarded to those who helped Rangers' to their historic 1972 European Cup Winners' Cup victory. McKinnon's role was of course bittersweet. Whilst having been a stalwart for the team for over ten years, a horrific leg break during the second round match of the competition vs. Sporting Lisbon effectively ended his career. This watch therefore represents both an important item of memorabilia awarded to those who helped Rangers achieve their only ever European trophy, but also as recognition to McKinnon, who had been so important to Rangers over the preceding years, though who's career was cruelly cut short during the competition.

A picture of McKinnon wearing the watch is featured in the listing.
