Rangers fans everywhere tuned in to watch Rangers beat Celtic 3-2 in the 2002 Scottish Cup Final on Sunday – including the hero of the day, Peter Lovenkrands himself.

The pacey ex-forward scored a last-minute winner to steal the match from Celtic after earlier equalising for the Gers to make it 1-1.

It’s a double which has the game dubbed the “the Lovenkrands Final” and it’s clearly just as important to the former Danish international as it is to the fans.

The former Ibrox forward shared an image of the matchday top he wore that day as his deadly double downed the hapless Hoops.

Lovenkrands was famed for his goals in big matches – particularly against Celtic – and came up big for the Gers at Hampden that day.

The Danish forward would play for six years between 2000 and 2006, winning six trophies with the club before turning out for Schalke, Newcastle United and Birmingham City.

But Ibrox is still very much home for the player signed from AB in his home country – Lovenkrands is currently a coach within the club’s Youth Academy.

Rangers fans themselves have been reminiscing about the special event on Twitter, whilst the re-run of the match itself on BBC Scotland has attracted comment from across the Rangers family.

Craig Moore played that day and he’s been talking to Rangers News about the moment which turned the game on the field.
