Paul Gascoigne was left emotional after scoring a "slow motion" goal on his return to Rangers.

Gazza was representing the club he played for from 1995-1998 in a legends game at Ibrox on Saturday (March 26) for their 150th anniversary. Now 54 years of age, he is far from the sprightly footballer he was in his heyday.

So the Rangers and World XI sides conspired to gift him an opportunity to relive his exhilarating career and find the back of the net, which had the 40,000-strong crowd up on their feet. Fans on social media were equally made up at watching a Gazza goal once again.

One wrote: "If you're not crying at Gazza scoring, you're not human. What an incredible talent and human being and Rangers' 150 years of domination is better for having enjoyed his presence."

"Terrible clearance there from the defender, but Gaza pounces on it and it’s like slow motion into the corner," jokingly added another. While a third said: "Got to love Gazza! That screamer was worth the admission money alone!"

All in all the England legend spent just three minutes on the pitch but before he went off he was mobbed by both sets of players which had him smiling from ear to ear.

A chant of "One Paul Gascoigne" rung around the stadium as the World XI team featuring the likes of Luis Figo, Kaka and Claude Makelele went on to win the friendly match 3-1.
