They unveiled Graeme Souness as their new manager and gave him the funds to win the title for the first time in nine years.
With English clubs banned from Europe because of the Heysel disaster, Souness used his force of personality to persuade England stalwart Terry Butcher and Norwich goalkeeper Chris Woods to sign for Rangers… and the rest is history.
