St Mirren stunned Rangers with two classic goals in this 1981 Scottish Premier Division match to win 2-1.
It was St Mirren who scored first in this home encounter at Love St match after Peter Weir (bought later that season by Alex Ferguson for Aberdeen) had brought a long kick from the keeper under control.
He headed on to Lex Richardson who squared himself up thirty yards out and unleashed a powerful shot which clipped a defender’s boot and sailed handsomely over the Rangers keeper and into the net.
Rangers were soon back in the match when Ally Dawson picked up the ball on the left wing and skipped past a defender before rifling a superb strike across the goal and into the far top corner.
After breaking down another Rangers attack, it was great play from Scottish internationalist Alan Logan which opened up the Rangers defence.
He ghosted past one defender on the right before sending a perfect pass across for Richardson to side-foot in his second.
The St Mirren side of 1981 was rampant; as well as beating Rangers they beat Celtic twice, Hearts, Aberdeen and Dundee United, and dealt out a 6-1 thrashing to Kilmarnock on the way.
The Paisley side eventually finished fourth, level on points with Rangers and just five points off second place.
