Vladimir Weiss tweets fellow former Rangers star Filip Sebo, after completing the New York marathon

New York City Marathon still

The tireless forward is living up to his attributes in a new life as an endurance athlete.

Rangers have not had many Slovakians in their ranks in recent times, but two to have played at Ibrox are Filip Sebo and Vladimir Weiss.

Sebo arrived from Austria Vienna in 2006 but struggled to find the net for the club during his one season with Rangers. However, he remained popular with the Rangers crowd because of his tireless work-rate.

Weiss spent time on loan at the club in the 2010-11 season from Manchester City.

This weekend saw Weiss tweeting the fellow former Rangers Slovak – in which he highlighted the new physical vocation Sebo has taken up.

Weiss, now with Al-Gharafa, sent this tweet:

Sebo is indeed now an endurance athlete, which will not come as a surprise to Rangers fans who got used to watching him cover every inch of every blade of grass at Ibrox in the hunt of goals for the Glasgow club.

The 32-year-old, who also plays in the Slovak lower leagues with Petrzalka Akademia - a team who Rangers faced in the Champions League back in 2005-06, who had beaten Celtic 5-0 in the qualifying stages. Like Rangers they have also been demoted all the way down the divisions because of financial problems.

Sebo will no doubt be running the miles to ensure they climb back up the system in no time, and Rangers fans will wish him all the best in doing so.
