Ally McCoist’s team went on to win 8-3 with Super Ally scoring a hat-trick in the second-half for his side to leave fans reminiscing of when the club’s record goalscorer was hitting the net on a regular basis for the Gers.
With a few of the Gers youth players not away in international duty involved it will also have been a fantastic opportunity for some of the youngsters to play in front of a big crowd with some genuinely talented players.
