Dare we dream?

That’s the question we have all asked these last few weeks. Could we do the impossible?

Dortmund was a small indicator, Red Star was another great performance and then Braga were overpowered in a tremendous Ibrox comeback.

Now it was RB Leipzig. A team that has every advantage in the game with multi-million pound investment, the very best of everything afforded to them and regularly spending of £50m plus on an annual basis. 

This was another challenge of epic proportions and then the killer goal five minutes from the end in Germany meant Rangers had it all to do. Leipzig came to Ibrox well in control but we all know what this ground can do on famous nights. 

Rangers are hurting. It's a club in mourning with one of our favourite sons passing suddenly. Jimmy Bell was Mr Rangers, described as the beating heart of our football club and the man who kept our dressing room on their toes. Loved by everyone and anyone who has gone through our club.

I had met Jimmy several times, was fortunate enough to get a tour of his famous room at the training ground, and every time he was nothing but smiling and friendly. Jimmy loved Rangers and everyone loved Jimmy. The squad and club was visibly rocked but somehow had to come together, for Jimmy and Walter and everyone at our football club. 

After an emotional tribute to Jimmy, Ibrox was ready. The last goal our kitman saw was Fashion Sakala's goal at Parkhead in a game Rangers should have won but somehow contrived to miss chances and finally end any hope of a league win. Despite that, Rangers' form has been good and we were in good shape on the pitch heading into this epic night at Ibrox. 

So off we went, tentatively with Ibrox roaring the team on. The Germans were in control and a few breaks spelt danger, Rangers would survive and begin to come into the game. Then a moment. Barisic goes down the line, Kamara holds it up and threads it to Kent. The winger charges at the defence and his cross is turned in by captain fantastic James Tavernier. Ibrox is rocking! My professionalism in the press area is shot and I am out of my seat in joy. 

It’s all square in the tie and the Germans are rocked. Go at them again Rangers! Go get them! 

And didn't they just. Scott Wright loses the ball, then wins it back, pings it to Joe Aribo. Joe cutting in on his left threads a lovely pass back to Wright who touches it back to Kamara. Glen rolls a superb shot briskly into the corner! Bedlam! Rangers are now ahead in the tie! Joe Aribo then has a chance to kill it but misses a sitter. A third would have been dreamland. 

Half-time and Ibrox is rocking. Then it’s Leipzig's turn and only a wonderful McGregor saves keeps them out but the respite is brief and the goal arrives. Ibrox is stunned but we rally and begin to play our way back into it. The old ground is united, Rangers are playing their way back into it. 

Then it happens. 

Kent, electric all night runs at them again. He should cross earlier but twists back in, looking for a better angle. His left-footed cross loops up. The keeper is struggling, clawing at air. It hits the defender's back and rolls out. Ibrox gasps. Lundstram rolls it in to an explosion of noise.

With ten minutes left, Rangers are on the brink of glory. Then a corner. The keeper comes up. We’ve seen this movie before. I can barely see through my hands but somehow we clear. It comes back but it's cleared again.

The referee blows and we are through!

A European final for this football club is huge and Rangers now have a shot at the Champions League and a ticket to £50m which would be ginormous for the club. 

More importantly, they have made us dream. That dream is alive and on our 150th anniversary and 50 years from Barcelona could destiny be calling once more? 

I’ve spoken a lot about 55 not being the legacy this team deserved but the beginning of a legacy they had to build. Now they have the opportunity to cement something and land the biggest trophy in our illustrious history. 

For Jimmy and Walter, history awaits as we head to Seville in just a few weeks. 

They have made us dream.
