Most Loyal Supporter

The Rangers Board of Directors decided to hold a competition to find the club's most loyal supporter. Entries flooded in from all over the country as well as from the far-flung Bears supporters' clubs throughout the world. It was a long and difficult task to pick the winner but this was eventually accomplished. The lucky fan turned out to be an 80-year-old Govan man who had followed the Gers, man and boy, since he was five years old. He was treated to an all-expenses-paid day as the club's guest, visiting the trophy room and dressing rooms. He then enjoyed a slap-up pre-match lunch before being taken on the team bus to an away game at Hibs, where he watched the play from the directors' box. The team duly obliged with a convincing win and the elderly fan enjoyed the celebrations on the team bus back to Ibrox.
At the end of a lavish dinner the chairman made a short speech of thanks to the supporter for his long devotion to his club, winding up by asking him if there was any particular season in Rangers' history that he had enjoyed more than others. The old Govanite gave it some thought and wasn't long in coming up with an answer: 'That would be 1977-78.'
The chairman's memory failed him in trying to sum up the club's achievements at that era.
'Was that the year we won the treble?' he asked.
'No, no,' said the fan, That was the year two popes died and Danny McGrain had a broken leg.'
