Rangers ace posts tribute to fans on Instagram after European draw

Rangers forward Kemar Roofe took to Instagram following the sides 1-1 draw against Lyon to praise the traveling fans following their own tribute to the Festival of Lights which takes place every year in the French city.

The French police had originally banned traveling Rangers fans from the city centre, before a travel ban was put in place for everyone, meaning hundreds of people were left out of pocket and scrambling to get refunds.

A surprising U-turn the very next day however gave supporters the green light to travel and support the side in the stadium.

The cause for concern was the French city hosting its annual event the Festival of Lights, with the 2019 editions attracting 1.8m visitors to Lyon.

Roofe gave his 172,000 Instagram followers a good laugh with his post after the match, with the caption reading “Rangers Festival of Lights made me chuckle #creative”  suggesting he was a fan of the traveling supporter’s own version of the popular festival.

The impressive pyro show was obviously a dig at the rigmarole the traveling support had faced over the previous few days regarding being allowed to travel to see the match.

As usual, though, the traveling Bears more than made up for the lack of numbers with the impressive display.

The Ibrox side secured a point against the French club with a solid performance that featured a few fringe players getting some vital minutes ahead of the hectic festive spell.

Rangers could face off against European football royalty when the draw is made on Monday, with the likes of Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund possibilities.

No matter where the draw takes us, the Rangers faithful will be there supporting the club through thick and thin.
