Former Ibrox fan favourite Daniel Candeias has responded to Rangers on Twitter with a heartfelt message.

Candeias was a hugely popular figure during his two years in Glasgow, during which he forged an excellent partnership on the right side with James Tavernier.

He made 97 appearances for the club, scoring 14 goals and notching 25 assists before taking a move to the Turkish Super Lig in July 2019.

The 33-year-old winger remains in Turkey but recently moved from Gençlerbirligi to Alanyaspor after suffering relegation with the former last season.

A tweet posted by the Portuguese on Wednesday makes it clear that Rangers still holds a special place in his heart, though.

The Gers shared a clip of him scoring in a pre-season friendly against Oxford United in the summer of 2019 for their ‘Goal of the Day’ feature.

Candeias wasn’t tagged in the initial tweet but it came to his attention a few hours later.

He quoted tweeted the video, writing: ‘Never forget this moments’ followed by a blue love heart emoji.

Candeias is yet to play a competitive fixture during what is his second spell at Alanyaspor, as his move only went through last month.

However, the start of the 2021/22 Super Lig campaign is now just over a month away and he’ll be hoping to improve on his haul of four goals and seven assists at Gençler last season.

The former Ger recently suggested that Alfredo Morelos should join Porto this summer but the Light Blues have reportedly rejected a bid from the Primeira Liga side.
