Yet, the good news doesn’t stop there. It has been announced that the youth programme at Rangers is set to land a considerable funding increase. 
In January 2017, the youth department received £170,000, a figure which increased to £250,000 in 2018.
This week, Colin Stewart, Chief of Operations for the the Rangers Youth Development Company, announced an even greater increase, this time around.

Now, a massive £400,000 is set to be injected into the club’s development programme.

In his statement, Stewart thanked the fans for their support.
“I would like to place on record my sincere gratitude to the thousands of Rangers supporters who take part in our wide range of products every week”, he said.
The Rangers Lotto and Rangers Pools are just some of the products connected to the RYDC.
