Stan Bowles scores a brilliant third goal for Queens Park Rangers in their 3-0 home win over FC Cologne in the UEFA Cup. It is his tenth goal in European football this season - a new record for an English League player.
Sadly, Rangers lose the second leg 3-0 and go out on penalties but Stan ends the tournament with 11 goals to become the highest-ever scorer in the competition.
Stan, whose wonderful skills and showmanship helped make the mid-1970s such a golden era in Rangers’ history was voted all-time cult hero by the club’s fans in 2004.
Former Rangers star Don Givens described Stan as ‘the most talented player I ever played with or saw in action’. Certainly few footballers have had a single released bearing his name, in this case the October 2004 release by the The Others!
