    NL on Fernando Ricksen: “I’m very upset. It’s been devastating. He put an unbelievable battle. My thoughts are with his family.”

    I think he was extremely brave, the way he kept himself in the media to highlight what MND can do to you.

    Each time you seen him and seen how he had deteriorated from the last. It really brought home what this illness can do to you.

    Sad he lost his battle, but feel he made a point in highlighting MND. At least he is at peace, and hopefully his family can find the same strength to rebuild they're lives...

    Have you read the whole article (obituary)? Or just his tweet and the replies?

    Totally heartbreaking seeing a young man waste away with this awful disease.

    He fought it hard with a lot of dignity that I'm not sure I could muster.

    RIP Fernando.

    My most hated Rangers player at one point, everything about him screamed hun, the bleached hun haircut, the hooped earing, that cocky smile he had he looked like a 90's Loyalist; but I have nothing but respect for him how he fought to the end and I actually miss him playing there was a respect there deep down which is often the case with players we love to hate. RIP Ricksen.
