Loads of Rangers fans will remember fondly their days of trecking to Ibrox to watch the likes of Paul Gascoigne and Brian Laudrup win silverware for them, and will be hopeful of days like that one day coming back. However, until then they still have the memories, and as the Dane turns 50 the fans have been looking back on his best moments.
Happy Birthday to the one and only Brian Laudrup. What a player! pic.twitter.com/xjZ43I26dy

The former winger had a stellar career in football where he was lucky enough to win the European Championship at international level as well as a whole host of titles at club level. The Dane won the Champions League with AC Milan and was a domestic champion in Italy, Denmark and Scotland, where he shone for Rangers in his four-year stint in Glasgow after signing from AC Milan.
The fans were dazzled time and time again by the creative magician that Laudrup became so famously remembered as, and of all the clubs which he played for, the Gers got to see the most of the incredibly talented champion. In his 150 games for the Gers he notched 44 goals, and will forever be remembered as a legend at Ibrox as they continue to try and get back to where they were in his playing days.

Legend. I was behind that goal when he scored what achieved 9-in-row for us. WATP.

Ah, those memories of him & Gascoigne ripping up the Scottish Premier Division!

Absolutely! Even many of the Celtic fans had plenty of respect for him. Lauders was indeed a class act and Rangers were very fortunate to have a player of such brilliance. Brian and Gazza in the same team, nobody could get close.

The Bluenoses will never forget Laudrup for the brilliamce he brought to Ibrox and will hope one day they can bring someone in who can match the ability of the Dane.
