Celtic play Ajax of Amsterdam in Glasgow this evening in a crucial Europe League game..
Fernando Ricksen is a former player and fan’s favourite of Rangers FC, and has been battling Motor Neuron Disease/ALS since October 2013. He appeared 12 times for the Netherlands.
Celtic have invited Fernando to be their guest this evening at Celtic Park when they play against the most successful club from Fernando’s native land. Ajax are managed and coached by Frank De Boer who played with Fernando at Rangers.
Fernando wrote on his FB page
“I’m looking forward to go to tonight’s game, Celtic v Ajax, at Parkhead. Many times I played there with Rangers as an opponent but tonight it’s my first visit as a guest.”
“I am honoured to be invited to this game and hope to see a lightning football match from both sides.”
Fernando has been the subject of a previous article on this site. We hope that he and his wife Veronika have a wonderful evening.
