Ibrox hero Stuart McCall admits joining Rangers in 1991 was a dream come true

Stuart McCall has looked back on his time at Rangers as both a player and as a manager.

Former Rangers player and manager Stuart McCall has spoken to Radio Yorkshire about his memories at Ibrox, as well as his stint in charge last season.

McCall, 51, is currently coaching with the Scotland national team, working under manager Gordon Strachan as they prepare for the World Cup qualifiers to begin later this year.

Now though, McCall has looked back on a storied playing career in an interview with Radio Yorkshire, and took time to focus on playing for Rangers.

After spells with Bradford City and Everton, the midfielder joined Rangers back in 1991, and went on to make more than 250 appearances during an incredible spell at Ibrox.

Rangers won nine league titles in a row, and as one of Walter Smith's first signings, McCall won six of those league titles, as well as clinching three Scottish Cups and two Scottish League Cups.

After Smith's departure for Everton in 1998, McCall left to return to Bradford City, but admitted that signing for the club was a 'dream come true' given that he came from a family of Rangers supporters, and noted his great memories of his trophy-laden playing days with the Gers.

McCall also returned to Ibrox last season as manager, but couldn't win promotion from the Scottish Championship, as Rangers were beaten in the play-offs by Motherwell.

Despite that defeat and then losing his job to Mark Warburton, McCall spoke highly of his time in the Ibrox dugout, claiming that the chance to manage the club was 'outstanding'.

"As a boy, my family were Rangers supporters," said McCall. "Going to a huge club with 50,000 fans every game, it was a bit of a dream come true. Obviously I managed to win 11 trophies there; six league titles, three Scottish Cups and two League Cups, and we had some fantastic runs and a fantastic run in Europe. [I have] great memories at Rangers."

"I had the spell at Rangers, which was outstanding last season. To go where we got; we were so near, obviously [missed out] with the defeat in the play-offs, but it was great," he added.
