RANGERS Fans Have Raised Nearly £60,000 In Their Bid To Score An Eye-Catching Sight For The Club’s Title Celebrations

Light Blues supporters hope to mark the Ibrox side’s 55th league triumph by having the Red Arrows fly over Glasgow.

Steven Gerrard’s charges are inching ever closer to Premiership glory and could seal their first top flight title for a decade in just a matter of weeks.

Such is the importance of the moment for the blue half of the city, it’s prompted the Bridgeton Loyal Rangers Supporters Club to find a unique way to celebrate.

They hope to have the Red Arrows fly over Ibrox, George Square, and Bridgeton on trophy day and initially set out to net £14,000.

However, in just three days, Gers fans have pledged £56,000, four times the original target.

Organisers say all money raised will go to worthy causes if the event does not come to fruition and have already earmarked the Erskine Charity and Emmie Smillie Charity Foundation.

Lee Calder, secretary of the Bridgeton Loyal Rangers Supporters Club, wrote: “In what has been an incredibly difficult time for all across society, the true spirit of football has been realised, offering a temporary escape from the pandemic.

“Supporters of Glasgow Rangers in particular have been spoiled by the quality of product on the pitch, with Steven Gerrard’s team looking set to break a 10 year duck and bring home title number 55.

“There will never be a support more deserving of this success; backing the team in their hoards throughout all divisions of Scottish Football breaking records on the way back to the top of the domestic game. This loyalty should never be understated – and this is what makes it even more disappointing that supporters will not be able to see the team lift that trophy at ibrox.

“For this reason, the Bridgeton Loyal Rangers Supporters Club are attempting to raise money in order to arrange a fly over by the Red Arrows on the day the league trophy is lifted. The plan is to have the arrows fly over Ibrox, George Square and then Bridgeton in what will be a historic day by all involved at the club.

“Although not yet definitively clear if this will be possible, in the event that it does not materialise, all proceeds raised will be donated to a number of charities close to the wider Rangers family’s heart.”
