RANGERS hero Fernando Ricksen has appeared looking frail in an emotional video on social media.

The 42-year-old Dutchman spoke to fans about his “final night.”

Ricksen, who played almost 200 times for Rangers between 2000 and 2006, was diagnosed five years ago with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

ALS is the most common form of the muscle-wasting condition Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

The 21-second clip shows a frail Ricksen speaking via a computer from his bed at a hospice in Airdrie.

The 42-year-old says: “Hello. I’m having a special night on the 28th.
