Filip Sebo became something of a legend at Glasgow Rangers, a firm fan favourite despite being possibly one of the worst strikers the club has ever signed.

Sebo was one of Paul Le Guen’s many signings during his ill fated spell as Rangers manager, which still holds the record as the shortest managerial reign in Rangers history and the only time that Rangers finished outside of the top 2 since 1988-89.

The lack of goals wasn’t what made Sebo such a failure at Rangers, his price tag, £1.85million was high for a club struggling financially and his constant running around like a headless chicken, coupled with his ability to miss the odd open goal and shrek like appearance saw fans treat him as something of a lovable loser.

When Rangers were two or three goals ahead, the fans began to chant his name and he would come off the subs bench. A statement from the Rangers team and fans that they had scored enough goals and would now just see the match out.

After a turbulent first season, a slimmed down Sebo appeared in a pre-season friendly against Chelsea, missing a sitter then somehow scoring a half volley from the edge of the area almost immediately afterwards, his first goal for 10 months. Fans poured onto the pitch to celebrate the Slovakian’s finest moment in a Rangers shirt, but the joy was short lived, as he was sold to Valenciennes shortly afterwards.
