Fernando Ricksen MND movie to go ahead thanks to fans
The former Ibrox favourite revealed on Dutch TV four years ago that he was suffering from the condition.
Ronald Top, a Dutch actor and writer, is producing the documentary - The Final Battle - on Ricksen’s life since being diagnosed with MND.
The one-hour movie will finally be broadcast after Rangers fans helped raise some of the £18,000 needed to fund the production costs.
Money came raking in after the Dutch production company released footage of Ricksen, 40, being fed by his 29-year-old wife Veronika.
Ricksen’s biographer Vincent de Vries told The Sun: “Rangers fans have definitely helped. A lot were getting in touch offering £5, £10 and £20, which all adds up. We reached the total and it’s just editing being done now.
“It’s going to be shown on Dutch TV and we’re hoping to have a premiere at a cinema in Holland. And then the plan is to show it in Scotland.
“It might be on STV. There’s been talks. I think they’re interested but nothing is confirmed.”
Vincent added: “People will be emotional when they watch it.”
