Edu quit Rangers in 2012 like so many others did, but the 33-year-old has retained an affection for his former club it seems.

The former Stoke City and Philadelphia Union man is perhaps best remembered for scoring a last-minute winner against Celtic in an Old Firm game in 2010.

 

That scrappy tap-in sent the Gers 10 points ahead of Celtic and represented a big step toward a second successive Premiership title.

Rangers posted a memory of that day on their official Twitter account, and here's how the man himself reacted.

Edu also won praise for his Champions League debut against Manchester United the following season.

He is a bonafide legend on the blue half of the Old Firm divide, and no doubt the Ibrox faithful would happily welcome back as a guest.
