Rangers icon Paul Gascoigne has been hailed a "proper footballer" by Steven Gerrard as he attended first-team training at Hummel Training Centre this week.

The Gers hero dropped in to watch the current crop of Light Blues being put through their paces by Gerrard and his coaching staff.

His day with Gerrard's outfit was captured by Rangers TV.

Gazza met the entire first-team and some youth prospects at Auchenhowie, shaking hands and handing out hugs to the likes of James Tavernier, Steven Davis and old pal Gerrard.

At one point in the three minute video Gerrard brings his players together for a photo and explains how none of them - including himself - are "even in the same league" as Gascoigne.

The Geordie legend even makes time to see old friend and Rangers kit man Jimmy Bell as he gets to work on training outfits.

Gers will be hoping the appearance of the icon will help them to the top of the Scottish Premiership table this afternoon when they play Hamilton at Ibrox after Celtic lost 2-0 to Livingston earlier in the day.
