It was an emotional affair at Ibrox on Thursday evening, as Rangers took to the pitch for the first time since the passing of their former player Fernando Ricksen.

The Dutchman passed away on Wednesday after a long battle with motor neurone disease, and the football community mourned the life of a great player.

Of course, Rangers paid tribute to the former SPFA Player of the Year with a minute’s silence, and they put on a performance in the Europa League that he would have been proud of.
