The autobiography of the man voted the greatest Rangers player of all time by the fans
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.
Edinburgh-born 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. He was captain of Rangers when they beat Moscow Dynamo in the final in Barcelona. He also won 44 Scotland caps. He became manager of Rangers in 1978 in succession to Jock Wallace but never enjoyed the same level of success he had as a player. He later returned to Rangers to work in public relations and was recently appointed to the board. Voted the greatest ever Ranger and known as "Ledge" - in reference to legendary status, his statue now stands outside Ibrox.
