Sport / Dutch football duo to head north

FOOTBALL fans disappointed with the cancellation of Paul Gascoigne event in Shetland could have something to cheer about after two former Rangers players were confirmed to appear at an event in Lerwick.

Former Dutch internationals Arthur Numan and Michael Mols will speak at the Sound Hall on 24 August.

The night, organised by the Shetland Rangers supporters club in conjunction with 5 Stars, is billed to have a meet and greet and a Q&A, as well as live interview.

Numan joined Rangers from PSV in 1998 and played 118 games in Scotland.

He racked up a total of 45 caps for the Netherlands, playing at World Cup 1998 and Euro 2000.

Mols, meanwhile, was signed by Rangers in 1999 and was regularly on the scoresheet, although injury prevented him from appearing more often.

He played six times for the Netherlands.

An event organised by a different promoter with Paul Gascoigne, who also formerly played for Rangers, was scheduled to take place at the Clickimin in August but the venue said at the time it was cancelled over a non-payment of a deposit.

The Clickimin, however, had also expressed reservations over negative publicity regarding his personal life.
