Rangers: top 30 players - Number 25

Rangers FC Stands

Rangers only got to see the best of him for 18 months but Paul Gascoigne had a considerable impact during his time at Ibrox.


While he only produced his best football at Rangers for half of his three-year spell at Ibrox, Paul Gascoigne will regard his time at the club as the last period in which he displayed his outstanding talent on a regular basis and for all of the controversy he brought with him, he was a success in Scottish football.


It took just five games for Gascoigne to become an instant hero after his switch from Lazio as he scored a wonder goal against Old Firm rivals Celtic. Nineteen strikes would be recorded during his opening season, in which he was awarded with two prestigious individual accolades at its conclusion.


The England international continued his fine goalscoring form at the start of the second year, but in the final 18 months of his stint, he only scored seven times as matters off the pitch began to take their toll. Nevertheless, the midfield maverick had more positive memories than negative at the club and he was inducted into the club's Hall of Fame in 2006.


Gascoigne scored 39 times in 104 appearances for Rangers and secured two league titles and two cups during his time in Scotland.
