Gough was captain again as a Rangers Legends side took on Milan Glorie at Ibrox in front of a packed crowd.
It was little surprise to see the armband handed to Gough by Walter Smith, who referred to his captain as "my cornerstone" during his first spell at the Ibrox helm.
Gough was born in Stockholm on April 5 1962 and brought up in South Africa.
His mother was Swedish and his father, a Scot, had played for Charlton Athletic in the 1960s, so football was in his blood.
His career started at Dundee Utd after he failed to impress in a trial at Ibrox and he moved from Tannadice to Spurs in 1986.
It was Graeme Souness who persuaded Spurs to part with him and he became Rangers' first million pound man when his signature cost £1.1 million in the autumn of 1987.
He went on to play 427 times for Rangers, scoring 34 times and lifting a total of 18 trophies in his two spells at Ibrox.
