The winger moved back to his native Denmark when he retired aged 31 back in 2000 after a final spell with Dutch giants Ajax.

He now helps run a football academy for marginalised youths along with former international goalkeeper Lars Hogh.

And he is also a highly respected and knowledgeable pundit on Danish television on Champions League nights.

But Laudrup still keeps in touch with goings-on at his former club Rangers and tries to get back to Scotland whenever his work commitments allow.

And he revealed that he is kept abreast of events in Glasgow by one of his old Light Blues team mates, goalkeeper Andy Goram.

He said: "Footballers drift away from each other when they leave a club. You lose contact with your old friends and team-mates over the years.

"But I am still in contact with The Goalie on a pretty regular basis.

"We send messages to each other and speak on the phone from time to time.

"And I still try to come back to Scotland around once a year. The reception that I get from fans whenever I do always touches me greatly.

"Rangers is forever in my heart. It is such a fantastic club."
