Refreshed and invigorated, the key to Rangers eventually prevailing in fine fashion to clinch deserved silverware perhaps took its signal from an inspirational quote under a tree in a shady Seville plaza last week.

As an astonishing 100,000 utilized ingenious methods to voluntarily bake in Andalusian sun in hope of observing the Light Blues win the Europa League, an esoteric fans’ banner tapped into the grainy wisdom of Bill Struth. Flapping defiantly, the words ‘No matter the days of anxiety that come our way, we shall emerge stronger because of the trials to be overcome’. How prophetic that was to be, with Rangers now having mindful moments to reflect; the compressed tension released with Scottish Cup success.
