Fernando Ricksen charity print

Tue 24th November 2020

A new, limited edition Fernando Ricksen print has been released, with proceeds going towards MND Scotland and the Rangers Charity Foundation.

Metal Gallery have 1,872 prints on sale in honour of Fernando, whose life was tragically cut short at the age of 43 following a six-year battle with motor neurone disease.

Elected to the Rangers Hall of Fame in 2014, Dutch international Fernando Ricksen made 182 appearances for Rangers scoring 13 goals. During his six years at the club from 2000 to 2006, Fernando won two Scottish Premier League titles, two Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups.

Speaking about the new print, close friend of Fernando, Vincent de Vries, said: “We were delighted to hear about the new Fernando prints and their support for MND Scotland and the Rangers Charity Foundation.

“These two charities are close to all our hearts and, on behalf of all of Fernando’s family, we’re delight to know that fans will be able to celebrate his legacy whilst supporting important causes.

“Seems like a fitting tribute, as Fernando himself was made out of metal.''
