In the 1990s Rangers were able to compete with the biggest teams in Europe when it came to the transfer market.

A video highlighting the transfer spend of clubs in Europe since 1991 makes fascinating viewing.

Rangers appear twice alongside Europe's biggest and most successful clubs.

In the 1991/1992 season they were one of the top 10 highest spending clubs with an outlay of more nearly £12million, more than Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

They dropped out of the top ten until 2000.

Between the 2000/2001 and 2001/2002 they reach ninth place in terms of money spend with £90million, higher than Juventus, Manchester United and Arsenal.
