Ironically, the museum at Hampden sits below the offices of the Scottish football authorities who seem intent on trying to re-write that history having already tried to strip Rangers of SPL titles and Scottish Cups.
The Scottish Football Museum is an independently run operation and already houses many terrific Rangers treasures.
However, new material is being brought for the exhibition which starts on November 1 and runs to March 2013.
Curator Richard McBrearty said: “It will celebrate some of the great players and great events in the history of Rangers FC. The storylines will finish on the memorable run to the UEFA Cup Final in 2008 and will stretch back as far as the collections will allow us to go.
“The intention has not been to strip out Rangers related objects from existing displays but to bring in new material to a dedicated exhibition space.
“Significant items such as a Scottish Cup winners medal from the first successful campaign of 1894, when great rivals Celtic were defeated in the final, and Ally McCoist’s European Golden Boot (one of two awarded to him) will therefore remain in their permanent locations within the history galleries.
“A wide ranging selection of objects and ephemera will instead be introduced to the display. Some of the greatest players to have been associated with the club will feature within the exhibition, from Alan Morton and Geordie Young, to John Greig and Richard Gough.
“Scottish Cup Final shirts, League Championship medals, rare programmes and gifts will all form part of the exhibition. Whilst the club’s four European finals from 1961 to 1998 will be represented, special place will go to the 1972 European Cup Winners Cup Final.
“A shirt and medal from the historic match will have pride of place at the centre of the exhibition and, thanks to the generous support of Rangers FC, a short term loan of the European Cup Winners Cup is being arranged which will enable it to be put on display.
“Finally, to complete the exhibition, film footage courtesy of the British Pathe archive will bring to life some of the legendary players and memorable cup finals from decades gone by.”
The museum is open from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday and from 11am to 5pm on a Sunday. Admission is £6 for adults and £3 for kids.
