MICHAEL MOLS insists it was a throwback to the past in more ways than one as the Rangers Legends were comfortable winners in today’s charity game at Ibrox.

As Manchester United’s past players were beaten 4-1, some of the club’s favourite players from the last two decades got together to play together once again.

But they scored some goals they would have been proud of in their playing careers too as Jorg Albertz, Ally McCoist and Alex Rae all found the net for the hosts.

Albertz’s leveller after Ronny Johnsen opened the scoring for the away team was sensational as he thundered in a trademark piledriver from 25 yards with his lethal left foot.

McCoist’s double was typical of the ruthless finishing he displayed in his own career and Rae’s clincher was a precision strike too.

Mols couldn’t get on the scoresheet himself but was pleased to have played a part in such a memorable fixture where a number of players showed they’ve still got something to give.

The Dutchman, now 42, said: “I always look forward to playing here at Ibrox and it is always great to see everybody again. (Tweet this quote)

“It’s just like the old days and it feels as though nothing has changed. The banter and laughter is still the same.

“It was unbelievable to see Jorg score his goal and like I said, it was just like the old days in that respect. Coisty got two good goals as well which was typical of him.

“Although our bodies might no longer work like we want them to, you can see a lot of the boys still have the vision to play. When we all get together on the park, it’s a lot of fun.”

Mols took part in a lap of honour with his fellow Rangers players after the final whistle as the majority of a 23,177-strong crowd stayed behind to applaud them.

And the ex-Utrecht and Feyenoord hitman says the strong support Gers have is one of their biggest strengths as they look to climb the division back to the highest level again.

Mols added: “Every time I come here, the fans keep surprising me and today again there was a great crowd considering it was a holiday here.

“There are still so many supporters and that is what being part of Rangers is all about. It’s not just about us being eager to play, it’s about people getting behind their club too. (Tweet this quote)

“If you look at our situation now, the best thing about Rangers is that at every home game there are still more than 45,000 people there.

“That’s unbelievable. We are one big family and this is a big institution so I hope we can get the club back to where it belongs as soon as possible.”
