Pop singer wishes Rangers Euro success as fans adopt famous track

Belinda Carlisle has sent her best wishes to the Rangers team ahead of the Europa League Final against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The legendary singer – who was part of iconic all-girl rock band The Go-Gos before launching a successful solo career – had a clip wishing Rangers every success uploaded to social media.

This comes after Rangers fans adopted legendary track Heaven is a Place on Earth in homage to Scouse midfielder John Lundstram.

It’s pretty surreal, but then again so is all of this Europa League Final carry on.

“Hi, Belinda Carlisle here wishing John, Gio, Tav and everyone at the Glasgow Rangers Football Club the very best of luck in Seville,” said Belinda [Twitter].

Belinda Carlisle sends Rangers best wishes

This all comes with Rangers fans going viral in football circles for adopting her classic Heaven is a Place on Earth for Lundstram.

The silky scouser’s Ibrox redemption story is already the stuff of legend after he scored the all-important goal against RB Leipzig that sent the club to the Europa League in Seville.

Etching his name into Ibrox folklore in the process, the catchy rendition of Belinda Carlisle song Heaven is a Place on Earth has been etching its way into the minds of every bluenose.

It must’ve been some feeling for John Lundstram to hear 50,000 Rangers fans sing his name like this at full-time against RB Leipzig and it’s a moment that will never be forgotten.

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, here’s the lyrics:

“Oooohh baby do you know what that’s worth,

“John Lundstram is the best on Earth,

“The silky Scouser is just what we need,

“He’s going to win us the Europa League.”

Remarkably, it’s not the first time we’ve been writing about the impact of Belinda Carlisle at Rangers News in the run up to the Final either.

That’s because the singer is actually playing in Glasgow this summer ahead of what promises to be the most emphatic rendition of the John Lundstram song imaginable.
