I will be hosting an event soon, raising awarenss of MND while trying to support Fernando.

The former footballer revealed he had been diagnosed with the degenerative condition motor neurone disease in 2013.

The event will be split into two, with family activities held during the day, and a VIP dinner at night.

Fernando is expected to attend both.

The afternoon event will see a football tournament for local youth teams, as well as live music, and the VIP night will feature a meal and speeches from former players, with VIP artist

The money raised will be split, with some going to MND Scotland and some going to Fernando and his family., and a local charity.

i have previously done a 5k run for Fernando and become recently close with him and his wife Veronika

I’m a big Rangers fan, and I’ve always been a fan of Fernando, he really played for the shirt., and knew fans were important.

When he announced he was ill it absolutely broke me.
We’ve become quite close so I asked if we could do an event for him – he was overwhelmed.”

when something like this happens, the team the individual played for doesn’t matter. - When it comes to something like this, colours go outside.

He’s stubborn so its great too see him still fighting it.

Please help me raise awareness of MND it really is a horrible diseae and i want to help support finding a cure if possible.

I just want to raise awareness of MND. Like many others we have seen the change in Fernando and too how weve seen him through the years too now is heartbreaking. So many people seem to be beind diagnosed with MND and i feel its something we need too investigate.
