Rangers eclipse Celtic as 1700 bears to descend on Polish Army Stadium

Rangers are set to take ten times as many fans to Legia Warsaw’s Polish Army Stadium than Celtic did in 2014, according to a Polish journalist.

The Ibrox giants are famous for their travelling support – undoubtedly the best in the world – and they’ve proved so once again ahead of the trip to Poland.

According to Marcin Bodziachowski, and the Scottish Sun, Rangers have reportedly sold 1700 briefs for the 30,000 seater Polish Army Stadium with a hostile atmosphere expected on the night.

That’s over ten times the 135 Celtic fans who travelled to Poland for their 4-1 hammering at the hands of Legia back in 2014.

Naturally, Gers fans have had plenty to say about it.

Celtic would, of course, be humbled 2-0 at Parkhead in the return leg but were infamously reinstated after the Polish side fielded an ineligible player.

It’s something which will be fresh in the memory for many Legia fans, who may even respond warmly to Rangers after the crushing expulsion.

Rangers’ incredible away support continues to amaze football fans around the world.

The Legia Warsaw fans also appear eager to match them when the return leg kicks off in Glasgow next week.

Their infamous supporters unfurled a banner saying their wives and children might cry about it, but they are going to Glasgow.
