RANGERS legend Davie Wilson famously hit Falkirk for six back in 1962 as the rampaging Ibrox outfit demolished the Bairns 7-1 at Brockville.

It was wing wizard Wilson's proudest moment of his career - until now.

Over half a century on from that shimmering salvo in the swinging 60s, the 75-year-old is savouring his induction into Scottish football's Hall of Fame.

"It's a huge honour, I'm very proud," said Wilson who netted 157 times for the Gers during a glorious 11-year stint with the Govan giants.

"It's great for a miner's boy from a wee village, Newton, who used to run about in his bare feet in the summer because I didn't have shoes.

"When I scored those six goals against Falkirk it was on my mum Meg and dad Tam's wedding anniversary.

"That was my proudest moment - until now. It means a lot to be in the Hall of Fame alongside so many great players."

There have been plenty of proud moments in this sporting life, of course.

A magical spell at Rangers was followed by successful stops at Dundee United and then Dumbarton, where he would go on to manage and steer the part-timers into the top flight.

A haul of 22 caps for his country also came his way and he would score one of the goals in the 2-0 win over England back in 1962, 12 months after the Scots had been humbled 9-3 by the Auld Enemy at Wembley. The wee boy done good.

"I was 14 and Cambuslang Rangers said I was too wee and too young," recalled Wilson.

"So I went to Baillieston Juniors. A fortnight later we played Cambuslang. It was one each with four minutes to go and I scored with my heid. Too wee eh?"

Still a regular at Ibrox during this era of tumult, Wilson's passion for Rangers remains undiminished.

He added: "I buy my lottery ticket every week and if my numbers came up I would put half the money into buying them. And I'd keep Ally (McCoist) as manager.

"There's been so much going on behind the scenes but Ally has held it together.

"There is no man who could have come through what Ally has been through.

"Even Graeme Souness said to me, 'No wonder Ally is losing his hair'."
