They may not be among the greatest players to have represented the Glasgow giants in their 141-year history.
In fact, sometimes they were downright hopeless.
But every so often something in an individual's DNA appeals to the supporters and they take him to their hearts.
Nacho Novo was certainly a cult hero. The little Spaniard played with his heart on his sleeve and grew to love Rangers.
Novo played in the same Rangers team as Filip Sebo - but with considerably more success.
Slovakian cap Sebo was signed by Paul Le Guen and was a complete flop. He scored just two goals, but the Light Blues faithful admired his endeavour and cheered his every effort in that ill-fated 2006/07 campaign.
Rino Gattuso was a far better player. But the midfielder, who went on to win the Champions League twice with AC Milan and the World Cup with Italy, was still not a regular starter in a light blue jersey.
German star Jorg Albertz was not the most hard-working player - but his powerful shot was renowned.
Going further back, Graham Roberts, Terry Hurlock and Ted McMinn all endeared themselves to the Rangers fans.
