Thirty years to the day after Sandy Clark scored two for Rangers in a 3-0 win over Hearts, his son Nicky went two goals better in Tuesday night’s 6-1 win over Forfar Athletic at Ibrox.
Nicky – who scored 41 goals for Queen of the South last season – has now taken his Gers count to seven after a stumbling start,.
And he could not hide his delight at his quartet of goals.
“I really enjoyed the game. I hope I can kick on from that,” he said.
“When I first came here I knew I would have to bide my time but I’ve never set any goals targets at any time in my career.
On the night when Rangers’ victory saw them equal the all-time club record of nineteen successive wins achieved in Season 1941-42, the focus for the Light Blue legions centres around the possibility of achieving the ultimate success – a 100 per cent League record.
But Clark is reluctant to even discuss such a possibility.
“We’re just taking it one game at a time. A lot of team s try to frustrate and stifle us both at Ibrox and even in their home games,” he added.
For Ally McCoist, the possibility is unlikely in the extreme.
“I don’t believe a 100 per cent league record is achievable,” he said.
“ I’ll settle just for winning the league. Teams from the lower leagues are more than capable of beating us on their own ground.
“Look at Dick Campbell’s team earlier this season – even if that was in the League Cup.
“The team can be proud of their run – it’s a fantastic achievement.”
