Steven Gerrard has called on Rangers to deliver a Europa League victory against Feyenoord as a tribute to former Light Blues defender Fernando Ricksen following his death at the age of 43.

Gerrard is preparing his players to face the Eredivisie side in their opening group game on Thursday evening and wants them to win the game for Ricksen.



I’m sure the supporters are very sad at this time and we who are responsible for tomorrow night’s performance want to do everything we can to try and get a win and dedicate it to him.” Gerrard labelled Ricksen a “fantastic ambassador” for the club and said he deserves all of the warm words he has received since Rangers announced news of his death on Wednesday morning.



“I’m sure there will be a lot of emotions in the stadium tomorrow and I think Fernando deserves that.

I’m sure both sets of supporters will pay their respects.

“It’s very sad news but he certainly deserves all the accolades that are going to come his way because I think he handled himself, not just as a footballer but as a human being, more importantly.”

“I think everyone knows before a ball is kicked, if that was the case, we’d certainly dedicate it to him and his family.
