Lot 1944

Note: Whilst the player is unknown, this medal comes from one of the most important seasons in recent memory.

After the baron years of the early 90s, Rangers had capitalised, matching Celtic's previous record of 9 League titles in a row. Looking for their historic 10th, all was to play for. It would come down to the last day of the season, with a victory vs. St. Johnstone securing the title by only 2 points. The men that stopped the 10.

This medal comes from the League Cup, played earlier in the season vs. Dundee United. Goals from Reiper, Larsson and Burley secured a 3-0 victory. It was that young Henrik Larsson's first piece of silverware at the club.
