When Rangers signed “Gazza” in the summer of 1995 from Lazio for a fee of £4.3 million, it was probably the biggest coup ever seen in Scottish football. Here was the English hero of Italia 90 and the midfielder acknowledged by English fans as the most talented player of his generation coming to Scotland – and he wasn’t even at the veteran stage yet! Rangers knew they were getting a world class
Before a ball had been kicked, young fans were copying his hairstyle and getting their hair dyed blond like his, much to the despair of their mothers, no doubt. His cheeky, happy-go-lucky persona made him an attractive new hero for the fans to worship but it was on the field that his talent generated most admiration.
A modern midfield player, he combined strength with skill. His surging runs would create many a goal, sometimes scored by himself. He showed great vision and had a variety of passing skills that meant he could open up defences at will. Excellent ball control and an instant first touch gave him the time and space to set off on a penetrating run that sometimes became almost a mazy dribble through the opposition. He used his upper body strength to ward off any challenges and sometimes, too, his elbows – a tactic that caused some controversy at times. A genuine goal-scoring midfield, creative player who got himself ahead of forwards into scoring positions, Gascoigne was very difficult to mark. No wonder he would eventually amass 57 caps for England.
He was, and still is, a Rangers’ hero, rightfully taking his place in the Greatest Ever Rangers team and in the Hall of Fame.
He won 2 League Championships, 1 Scottish Cup and 1 League Cup.
