A throwback image posted by the official Rangers Twitter account from Jorg Albertz’s last game in 2001 has a lot of Rangers fans feeling nostalgic.
Ever since the suspension of Scottish football amid the global health crisis, the Gers have been posting archive material on a daily basis.
We’ve had classic goals from Old Firm victories and yesterday, a picture of famed kitman Jimmy Bell from the 1990s which got both current and former Rangers players talking.

Today’s choice of picture has had many Bears thinking back to better times.
It’s an image of a celebrating Jorg Albertz from his final game for the club against Hibernian in May 2001.
The Gers were too good on the day, with the German midfielder opening the scoring early on from the spot before a brace from Ronald de Boer and a late effort from Tony Vidmar secured a 4-0 victory.
Rangers would only manage a second-place finish in the league that season, but Albertz won seven major trophies across five years with the club including three league titles, two Scottish Cups and two League Cups.
Der Hammer was extremely popular with the Ibrox faithful and that was reflected by the response to the tweet, with many fans claiming to be feeling emotional.
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:

One of the greatest players to grace the jersey that I’ve seen play. Need someone of similar quality as The Hammer back in the squad.
