(Video) Robin van Persie scores brace and registers assist against Rangers Legends

It’s all about throwbacks and reunions with these events and we’ve had many of them at Manchester United down the years.

Now Rangers are buying into the tradition with a Rangers Legends XI taking on a World XI.

Jaap Stam and Robin van Persie were two former Manchester United players that featured in the starting eleven. On the bench, former defender Wes Brown could make an appearance at some stage.

Van Persie showed that he still has a lot in his locker with not just a goal, but an assist for former Arsenal team-mate Jack Wilshere, who seems to be one of the lucky ones to get a place in the squad.

World XI made it 1-1 after an excellent header from Van Persie, who assisted Wilshere to make it 2-1.

The Dutch striker made it a brace to force the scoreline to 4-3.
