Video: Ally McCoist, Michael Mols and Peter Lovenkrands Among the Goals in Rangers Legends Match

This afternoon’s Rangers Legends match was littered with goal-mouth action with Ally McCoist’s side inflicting an absolute battering on a Walter Smith-lead XI.

Former Light Blues striker Michael Mols grabbed a brace, while Peter Lovenkrands also had tow goals to his name at full-time.

Yet it was McCoist’s performance, the club’s all-time leading goalscorer, which will live longest in the memory.

The 55-year-old spent the first half in the dug-out barking instructions to his former colleagues but decided to lace up his boots in the second 45… and he made a decent impact as he nabbed a hat-trick.

The pick of the bunch was McCoist’s third though, which involved some great build-up play featuring Thomas Buffel and Sebastián Rozental:

Mols’ first goal was also impressive though, as he got on the end of a terrific cross from Pedro Mendes and humiliated legendary goalkeeper Andy Goram with a simple shimmy:

Thankfully he the Dutchman held himself back from nodding the ball across the line:

Lovenkrands made a similar impact to Mols, albeit for Smiths side which completely ran out of gas in the second half.

The former Denmark international, who now works at the club as an U20s coach, finished off a fine move:

 

The charity match was set up in aid of the Rangers Charity Foundation and the Rangers Youth Development Company, with ex-defender Fernando Ricksen even making a brief yet emotional appearance.
