Rangers striker Fashion Sakala saluted the away fans whilst holding the match ball after his hat-trick against Motherwell.
The Zambian international was serenaded by the Light Blues supporters who were in attendance at Fir Park and fans on Twitter were loving the reception that the forward received:
That is utterly brilliant – the fans were class from start to finish 🤩🤩🤩

Absolutely unreal. Me, like others, have written this guy off, but fingers crossed today is the day that kick-starts his rangers career..
What a song.. he comes from Zambia.. 🎵🎶

It could well be the breakout moment for Sakala, who has had to be patient since he arrived on a free transfer from Belgian side KV Oostende in the summer.
Ironically, the 24-year-old’s only other goal for the Gers also came against Motherwell, during the 1-1 draw at Ibrox back in September, but he will be hoping his three goals on Sunday will help him kick on to feature more prominently for the Scottish champions.
Manager Steven Gerrard has only started Sakala on four occasions so far this campaign and the striker will be looking for more starts following his performance at the weekend.
