Nicknamed 'the Ledge' on account of his legendary status, John Greig has been voted the greatest Ranger of all time by the fans and his statue stands outside Ibrox. His achievements speak for themselves: numerous Scottish Championships and Cups, captain of the successful European Cup-Winners' Cup side of 1972 and the only member of three Treble-winning sides. He also captained his country, winning 44 caps for Scotland. In 1978 he moved from the dressing room to the Rangers manager's office where he enjoyed Cup sucesses but never quite reached the heights he achieved as a player. Here he recounts the highs and lows of his career and relives classic moments on the pitch and numerous off-the-pitch antics with both club and country.
John Greig played a total of 877 games for Rangers - 755 competitive - between 1961 and 1978 and scored 120 goals. He won five league titles, six Scottish Cups, four League Cups and the European Cup-Winners' Cup in 1972, captaining Rangers in the latter when they beat Moscow Dynamo in the final. He also won 44 Scotland caps. He became manager of Rangers in 1978 in succession to Jock Wallace and later returned there to work in public relations. He was recently appointed to the board.
