It's the time of year where usually in some corner of Europe we can expect to see a dramatic final day title decider.

One of the greatest of them all came 15 years ago today when Rangers snatched the title from Celtic's grasp in dramatic fashion in what is now famously known as 'Helicopter Sunday'.

How does it compare against other famous day finales where the title seemed to go on a country tour before landing at its final destination? Sportsmail looks as the greatest final day showdowns in Europe where you didn't know where to keep your eyes.

After a close title battle between Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid throughout the year, the final day in 1992 came down between the former two, with Real a point ahead.With just two points awarded for a win Barca needed to defeat Atletic Bilbao, while hoping relegation threatened Tenerife at home could deny Real victory.

Heading into the final day of the 2000-01 season a Schalke side chasing a first modern day Bundesliga title had to win against soon to be relegated Unterhaching and hope Bayern Munich lost in Hamburg.

Ronaldo's magic would finally capture a domestic trophy at Inter Milan by helping them win the Italian top flight for the first time since 1989.Inter went into the final day top of Serie A but they were far from nailed on to win the title.

Sportsmail's Chris Sutton still cannot get over the nightmare of how Celtic blew the title from a winning position on the final day of the Scottish Premier League season in 2005 and giftwrap Rangers the title.
