A goal by Norwich City defender Steven Whittaker – during his days as a Glasgow Rangers player – has been included in a list of the best 60 strikes seen in Uefa competition.
Whittaker's mazy run and finish against Sporting Lisbon in April, 2008, helped seal Rangers spot in the semi-finals of the Uefa Cup on their way to the final against Zenit St Petersburg.
Speaking on Rangers World, Whittaker said: 'That is a great memory of mine. I remember the boy getting it in the middle of the field and I read where he was going and managed to get a tackle in. I then just thought about getting the ball up the pitch and ran through and the guy I tackled came back at me and had a slide tackle but I managed to skip clear of him.
'Then I went by their sitting midfielder and was through to the defenders. I had people to my left and I think that's why I got through, the defender expected me to pass to them. Once I went past him, it was me and the goalie and I managed to keep my cool and slot it past him.
'It was a great goal and I was delighted we got ourselves into the semi-final.'
