Rangers fans have responded after former Ibrox favourite Daniel Candeias wished his old club good luck for Saturday’s Premiership clash against Dundee United.

Candeias was one of the few positives to emerge from Pedro Caixinha’s era at Ibrox, with the Portuguese embracing life as a Rangers player and winning over the supporters with his committed displays.

He featured regularly during Steven Gerrard’s first season as manager, producing several memorable performances.

One such outing came away at Spartak Moscow in the Europa League group stages.

The winger scored a stunning second goal for the Gers on the night, taking a wonderful touch on the turn after being played in behind by Jon Flanagan, before confidently firing a finish into the bottom left corner.

The strike was chosen as Saturday’s ‘Goal of the Day’ and Candeias, who now plays in the Turkish Super Lig for Genclerbirligi, responded after being tagged by the club.

“Always Rangers, good luck for today,” he wrote on Twitter.

His tweet prompted a considerable response from Gers supporters, many of whom clearly miss seeing Candeias grafting away on the right flank.


Candeias and Gencler start their 2020/21 Super Lig campaign on Sunday evening away to Antalyaspor, having finished just four points above the relegation zone last season.
