Hibs 2 Rangers 1 May 31st 1979

Davids :)

Got any details on this game? I believe it was the lowest ever Hibs v Rangers crowd at ER: 3242, but I dont suppose you have team line ups or scorers?

It's a missing edition in my Rothmans...

Cheers

The reason for the low crowd, Bobby, was that it was just three nights after the second replay between Rangers and Hibs in the SCF.

Hibs: McArthur, Brazil, Duncan, Bremner, Stewart, McNamara, Rae, McLeod, Campbell, Brown (Farmer), Hutchinson (Lambie)

Rangers: McCloy, A Forsyth, Dawson, Miller, Morris, Watson, Strickland (Armour), Urquhart, Russell, Smith, Cooper (Robertson)

Scorers: Brazil (25) 1-0, Urquhart (57) 1-1, Rae (82) 2-1

Easily the lowest league crowd for the fixture at Easter Road.

I was actually at this game, and the three SC final games also, for the record these stats are taken from "Rangers The Complete Record" by Rangers Historian Robert McElroy & Bob Ferrier.
Rangers met Hibs on 4 occasions between May 12th and May 31st 1979, the attendances were 1st SC 50,610 (0-0) on 12th May, 33,504 (0-0, aet) on 16th May, 30,602 (3-2 aet to Rangers) on 28th May. Two days later they met at Easter Road in the final league match, 2-1 to Hibs with an attendance of 5,000. The Rangers team was; McCloy, A.Forsyth, Dawson, Miller, Morris, Watson, Strickland, Urquhart, Russell, Smith, Cooper. Subs were; Armour & Robertson.
A grand total of 114,716 attended the three SC games!!!
