Whilst Rangers fans cooled off from an electric first 45, there are few club legends that could’ve added to their spirit going into the second half of a raucous Old Firm. Nacho Novo is one of them.
What a perfect choice for the halftime draw on this Old Firm day.
Nacho is one of us. He is there in the stands, he’s there watching every game, and he’s there in his Rangers pub, NN10.
Nacho loves Rangers. And today, he exemplified that with class and style when he come on at half time.
“It’s a good feeling when you’re winning,” he joked. But seriously, he added, “there’s only one team in Glasgow. We are the People.”
The stadium erupted, sang his song and Nacho left the pitch with the fans psyched up for the second half. That team and the club would’ve did him proud today. Novo, as much as any of us, has felt the pain of the last few years and the triumph over the last few months.
He was perfectly suited to come in and say something to stoke up the fans. And that he did. The club legend must’ve enjoyed that at full time.
Nacho Novo played over 250 times and scored over 70 goals as he won six trophies with Rangers. The striker, who spoke to us earlier in the year, is also a member of the Rangers Hall of Fame.
