All angles of Scottish football have come together to remember Davie Cooper on the 25th anniversary of the Motherwell and Rangers icon’s death.
A masterful footballer, Cooper started out at Clydebank before going on to play for Rangers between 1977-89.
After his Ibrox spell, Cooper would go on to immortalise himself in Motherwell history. He was one of the star men as the Well enjoyed their famous 1991 Scottish Cup victory, with that win being the latest piece of silverware in the Fir Park cabinet.
Cooper returned to Clydebank after this spell but tragically passed away. He died of a brain haemorrhage on 23 March 1995.
The winger is widely regarded as one of the best footballers this country has ever produced. Clydebank and Rangers fans remember him as one of their greats whilst Motherwell have a stand named after ‘Super Cooper.’
From Scottish football fans, to clubs and others alike, many have paid tribute to the skillful talent.
Twenty-five years ago, we lost a legend.
God gave Davie Cooper a talent.

The quote at the bottom from Walter Smith sums up Davie Cooper perfectly. It's unreal to think 25 years have passed since one of Scottish football's true genius' left before his time. He made an indelible contribution in his four years at Fir Park. RIP Davie. #SuperCooper pic.twitter.com/3nJmNpkg9r
