"Proud" Rangers fans react to club's Remembrance Sunday ceremonies

Rangers continued their tradition of supporting the Armed Forces and remembering Britain’s fallen with a Remembrance Sunday ceremony at Ibrox.

Every year Rangers put on a special Remembrance Sunday display and event on the home match which is closest to the 11th of November.

Today Rangers boss Steven Gerrard and club legend John Greig laid a wreath in memory of those who lost their lives in the Great Wars, whilst the club unveiled a special “Lest We Forget” display in the stands.

Rangers pride themselves on their support of the armed forces and the traditions of British culture and stand truly unique in this country for doing so.

As a result of the club’s commitment to remembering and celebrating the Armed Forces, they became the first football club in the country to receive the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award.

The minute’s silence – started and ended by the firing of a gun from the 105 Regiment RA – was observed by supporters on an emotional day at Rangers.

Some supporters took to Twitter to applaud the club for the move.

Remembrance Sunday may be two weeks away but Rangers will not be back at Ibrox for a domestic match until the visit of Hearts on the 1st of December.
