The 42-year-old was close to tears as he was joined at GoGlasgow Urban Hotel on Paisley Road West with his wife and daughter.

Rangers fan Pauline Glen who organised the dinner, said: "It's an amazing turnout. It's a complete sellout.

“It's been really emotional. It just shows how much everyone loves Fernando.”

"I can't thank the hotel enough for helping me make a success of this,” she added, reports The Scottish Sun.

The announcement for the event had been made earlier this month along with an emotional video showing the Dutchman looking frail.

He spoke to fans about his “final night” in the clip. 

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).
