Rangers boss Steven Gerrard hailed for ‘amazing tribute’ before Feyenoord win

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has been hailed for his tribute to Fernando Ricksen before his side's 1-0 win over Feyenoord.

The Gers gaffer shared a snap, which appeared to have been taken using his phone, of Rangers scarves and flowers laid for the late Dutchman outside Ibrox.

Light Blues hero Ricksen died this week following a brave battle against motor neurone disease.

And paying his respects, Gerrard captioned the photo "RIP Fernando" with blue, white and red colours.

It drew a heartwarming response from Rangers fans.

It also drew warm comments from former teammates Jerzy Dudek, Stephen Warnock and Jose Enrique.

One Gers fan wrote: "Amazing tribute for an amazing character. Pain free now Fernando. Rest easy."

Another said: "Let's keep the momentum going for him gaffer."

And another fan hailed: "We love you Gerrard respect, and rest in peace Fernando."

Rangers held on to beat the Dutch side in the Europa League following a goal from Sheyi Ojo.

It was their opening game in the competition, with both sides wasting good chances.

Next up, Gerrard's side will travel to St Johnstone on Sunday three points behind league-leaders Celtic.
