Rangers legend and hall of famer Ronnie McKinnon represented the club between 1960 and 1972, tallying a huge 487 appearances across all competitions. He would help the team to two League Championships, four Scottish Cups and three League Cups. He would also play a part in Rangers' winning 1972 European Cup Winners' Cup run, though, it was in the second round game vs. Sporting CP in Lisbon that he suffered a broken leg. This would prove critical for the player, who had been a regular for over a decade, and was to be his last game for Rangers.

He also received 28 caps for the national team, playing in some memorable victories including the 3-2 match vs. England in 1967.
