Synopsis

A two part look at John Greig, who remains one of Rangers' most fondly remembered personalities, giving service to the club as player and manager from 1960 to 1983. The first part charts his career from a goal-scoring debut against Celtic to his captaincy of the team that won the 1971 Scottish League Cup. Features interviews with contemporaries such as Jim Baxter and Billy Bremner. The second tells his story from the early '70s onwards, including the Treble triumphs of 1975/76 and 1977/78, European wins over Juventus, PSV Eindhoven and Barcelona, and a successful spell as manager in the early Eighties. Graeme Souness, David Murray and Walter Smith are amongst the ex-colleagues interviewed.
