Ricksen passed away

Fernando's tribute match was the first time in a long time it felt like Rangers again. We're getting there now, but I distinctly remember that day being a reminder of what it should be like. Whatever that means, I thank him for that memory and feeling.

We'd been through so much, on field/off the field and the truly abysmal football we had to endure. That day and occasion, with the man himself taking kick off and the gasped silence when he fell, was a complete tumble dryer of emotions.

Seeing his ex teammates carrying him round each corner of the famous stadium to applause and admiration of all inside was the first time I felt like we were ourselves again. It's very difficult to articulate, but that Ricksen charity match to me was special. Not only did it simultaneously put our footballing woes into perspective, it also reminded us of what we are as a support and how special a  club it is. And no shyster cunt con man, spiv or charlatan could touch that feeling, thank God.

They gave him 18 months, he fought like fuck for 6 years.

No Surrender Fernando Ricksen

Think I had something in my eye when he was carried round,understand what you mean about feeling like Rangers again to an extent,was like all the different factions in support bonded in unity again,the way it should be and seems to have been since

So sad. You fought so hard Fernando. A true warrior, and what resilience you showed both on and off the park. Who'd have thought after that early hook at parkhead how vital you would become for us. Forever grateful. I hope you are at peace now. Thoughts with the family. 💙

Had some belters of stories throughout  his time with us. 

Pushed John McLelland (chairman at the time) into a pool whilst on a European trip. Then the rest of the squad told him McLelland couldn’t swim so he jumped in after him only to realise it was only waist height 😂😂😂 McLelland was raging, expensive watch on, wallet in the pocket the lot!
