Rangers took on Hibernian in the Scottish top-flight today and they did not get the result they would have been after. They suffered a 2-1 defeat at Ibrox to Neil Lennon’s men with fans being left disappointed at the final result.

So what could cheer Rangers fans up? What about one of the greatest players to ever pull on a Rangers jersey in the changing room?

Paul Gascoigne came to visit today along with some other Rangers legends and cult heroes.

One even caught him on camera. Marco Negri, who scored 36 goals in 39 appearances in the 1997-98 campaign, was also present at the game and took this photo of the England legend in the Ibrox changing room:

Gazza was with Rangers from 1995 to 1998 and was a fan favourite during his time at the club, as he was wherever he goes. Gascoigne was also looking in good shape, considering his personal problems, that was great to see.

Gazza himself also took to Twitter after the game, to share his appreciation regarding the visit to Ibrox:

After the defeat Rangers fans will no doubt wish they had a player of Gazza’s quality in the side right now, as they continue their attempts to return to the top of Scottish football.
