Barrie McKay left Rangers in the summer of 2017 to join Nottingham Forest and has since joined Swansea City, but he is still held in high regard by Rangers and they posted his goal against Celtic in April 2016.
Three years ago, the 24-year-old winger scored Rangers’ second while the club were still in the Scottish Championship against Old Firm rivals Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
Mark Warburton’s Rangers beat Ronny Deila’s Celtic on penalties to reach the final, where they eventually lost to Hibernian 3-2 thanks to David Gray’s winner from a corner late on.
McKay’s goal was perhaps the highlight of his Rangers spell. Turning Celtic captain Scott Brown inside out, McKay blasted a ball from 25 yards out into the top corner. Rangers posted a video on Wednesday on their Twitter.

McKay turned out 140 times for Rangers’ senior side after breaking through the academy. He scored 20 goals, and laid on 39 assists. Now, he is struggling for game time at Championship side Swansea.
Rangers fans reacted to their club’s post of McKay’s goal and some fans want him to come home, while others regret their club offloading him to Nottingham Forest in two years for just £500,000 (The Sun).
Bring him back ?⚪?

But this video is always better with sound, one half of Hampden erupting, moans and groans from the other half.
