Gunni joins Gers

30 October 2011 01:33
Saints cult hero Gudmundur Torfason has returned to Scottish football after being appointed as Rangers' Icelandic scout.

Torfason - affectionately known as Gunni during his three years at Love Street - was at the club at the same time as current Rangers assistant manager Kenny McDowall, which is how the appointment has come about. Quite how much scouting he'll be doing for them is anyone's guess, although Rangers will perhaps be hoping he can find the sort of talented Icelandic youngsters that were common place in Championship Manager a few years back!

Gunni signed for Saints in 1989, having three years at the club before signing for St Johnstone when the Buddies were relegated in 1992. he was a popular figure with the fans, hitting fierce free-kicks and being top scorer three years running. Until Michael Higdon's treble against Hamilton in April, he was also the last Saints player to score a hat-trick in Scotland's top division.

Gunni is also well known for scoring the opener in a legendary 3-0 win we enjoyed at Parkhead over 20 years ago - and you can see the highlights at
