Yet there was a real risk the final match might not have taken place, after the Russian team refused to play if Rangers fielded their newest signing, Jimmy Caskie. Guest blogger Douglas Gorman has taken a fresh look at the controversy, and you can read his article here.
Jimmy Caskie, a diminutive left winger, came to the fore with St Johnstone in the 1930s and after starring for the Scottish League select he joined Everton in 1939.
Caskie made his debut at Ibrox the week after the Dynamo match and remained until 1949. He wound down his career at Forfar Athletic and then joined Berwick Rangers a few months before they entered the Scottish League in 1951.
