Rangers heroes have taken the time to visit Fernando Ricksen in hospital during their short stay in Glasgow.
Ronald de Boer, Jorg Albertz, and Marco Negri all visited the Dutchman earlier today. A photo of the heroic quartet was put up by de Boer on his Twitter account.

Albertz, de Boer, and Negri are all in Glasgow taking part in the Star Sixes tournament. The event has been live on Sky Sports over the last couple of days, and will culminate tonight at the Hydro.
Ricksen, of course, suffers from motor neurone disease, but has never allowed it to affect his positive mindset. The Dutch hero has been open regarding his condition for years now, and is often visited by former Gers stars who he played with.
All four of the players picture played with each other for a short period. The longest affiliation in the group, however, is between de Boer and Ricksen. The duo spent four years together at Ibrox in a trophy-laden spell under both Dick Advocaat and Alex McLeish.

Gers hero Ricksen recently received a computer to help him communicate better with friends and family. The disease damaged the Dutchman’s voice, but he still opens up through his new tech.
It’s always a pleasure to see Ricksen in high spirits. He’s constantly determined to avoid any pity, and continues to live his live as normally as possible in extremely positive spirits.
The image posted by de Boer will warm the hearts of Gers fans. As always, Ricksen was looking in good nick as he was surrounded by his mates.
