Of course, the English manager was referring to the European Championships held in his home country 20 years ago and the moment of sheer majestic brilliance served up by then-Rangers midfielder Paul Gascoigne.
The two British rivals met in a group stage game at Wembley, after both being held to a draw in their respective tournament openers.

Gers gaffer Warburton holds that memory close to his heart, and at his weekly press conference today, he recalled being at Wembley to watch it first-hand:
