BRIAN Cameron says he will always cherish the moment when Elgin City silenced the mighty Rangers by taking the lead at Ibrox.
City eventually lost 5-1 to the Glasgow giants, but Cameron revealed the thrill of playing in front of 46,000 and soaking up the atmosphere.
And he described the Elgin delight when Jamie Duff’s magnificent 15th minute strike hit the back of the Rangers’ net.
“I just couldn’t believe it when we took the lead,” Brian said. “What a strike from Duffers!
“We were living the dream for ten minutes.”
Rangers hit back with goals by Dean Shiels, David Templeton (2) and Lee McCulloch (2) to win comfortably in the end, but local lad Cameron said he and his City team mates will benefit from the experience of playing in a big match.
“To be fair to Rangers they played well but I think they will beat everyone at Ibrox this season.
“I think we gave a good account of ourselves and we’ll build from this.
“The atmosphere was just tremendous, even when we came out for the warm up the fans were building up and building up.
“As soon as the first whistle went you couldn’t hear yourself think, and you couldn’t even speak to the next player and expect him to hear you.
“It was a surreal experience but really good, and something I’ll savour forever.”
