Many Rangers supporters have put their rivalry with Celtic aside to appreciate and thank the Hoops for their pre-match tribute to Fernando Ricksen last weekend. 

The former Rangers star sadly passed away following a battle with motor neurone disease last week, and people across the footballing world have all paid their respects to his family, friends and those at Rangers.

Celtic were also among those to remember Ricksen, with supporters taking part in a minute’s applause for the former defender at Parkhead on Sunday; an act which has received recognition and praise from Rangers fans.

The applause from Celtic supporters for Ricksen was certainly nice to see at Parkhead on Sunday, as rivalries were rightly cast aside to pay respects to the former Ibrox star. 

Times like this call for football to unite and come together to recognise the sadness of what has happened; something that Sunday’s applause certainly did.
