The Europa League interpreter caught the attention of the Ibrox support when he translated Steven Gerrard’s press conference as the Gers looked forward to playing Braga in Portugal.
Since then, it’s been a match made in heaven and the ultra-cool language specialist has voiced his appreciation for all the love he’s been getting from Glasgow on Twitter.
One month since this Magic day! A one to remember! BY MILES the best day of the year! Difficult to put into words the pleasure that it was for me to host & mediate the communication of the greatest 🏴 Scottish ⚽️ club! Thank Y’all gers supporters for the 🤍❤️💙 #rangersfc #ibrox pic.twitter.com/7nzVmlPBzl

The response of the Ibrox support to Manik has clearly meant a lot to the translator and it’s a nice touch to come out and praise the Ibrox support.
The flamboyant translator also wasted no time in nailing his colours to the mast, announcing that Rangers are “the greatest Scottish club”.
It appears that the reaction of the Gers fans on Twitter has helped make Manik a bluenose and something suggests this won’t be the last we hear of the likeable interpreter.
Whilst the day Rangers played Braga in Portugal is a memorable one for Manik Mane for being introduced to the Ibrox club, fans will remember it as the day we dumped Braga on their own patch.
Leading 3-2 from a stunning first-leg Ibrox comeback, Rangers remained underdogs as they travelled to Portugal.
But Steven Gerrard’s side produced a defiant performance to dump the in-form Portuguese side 1-0 on the night and 4-2 on aggregate in the Europa League last 32.
