Rangers captain Lee McCulloch has experienced the ultimate highs and some desperate lows during six incredible years at Ibrox. From the joy of three-in-a-row to the searing pain of administration, the lifelong Gers fan has endured a rollercoaster of emotions few players have ever had to go through. Now, for the first time, Lee lifts the lid on the inside story of his amazing career.

But the dream quickly turned into a nightmare as Big Jig struggled for form and confidence a#150; until a heart-to-heart with Walter Smith turned his Rangers career around.

He also tells the full story of what life has been like as Rangersa#8217; captain in the Third Division.
