Football fans tuning into Rangers’ 2-0 win over Ross County would’ve noticed the Ibrox club have a new hero in Rabbi Matondo – and a new song.

The young Welsh international winger is in the midst of an Ibrox resurgence and once again impressed Rangers supporters in the afternoon clash in Dingwall.

Coming off the bench as a second half substitute following his first Rangers goal in midweek, Rabbi Matondo was treated to a repeated chorus of a song in his honour.

Reacting to the adulation, it was another bright showing for the ex-Schalke man who – one year on from joining the Gers – finally looks ready to leave his mark in Glasgow.

But what song where the Rangers fans singing for Rabbi Matondo at Ross County?

Adapting the tune of classic The Cure song Friday I’m in Love, Rangers fans paid the ultimate tribute to Rabbi Matondo by immortalising him by way of a song from the stands:

“Running down the Rangers right, playing in blue he’s dynamite.

“The best young Welshman we all know, he’s Rabbi Matondo

Rangers fans pay homage to Rabbi Matondo with song

The winger might not have found the net against the Staggies, the match won in the first-half via an unorthodox poacher’s goal from the returning Kemar Roofe and a stunner from James Tavernier.

But Matondo did once again find flashes of form as the adoring Rangers fans sang his name and saw glimpse of player who once cost Bundesliga Schalke £11m.

Signed last season after a successful campaign on loan at Cercle Brugge in Belgium, there were high hopes the youngster would male a big impact at Rangers.

Failing to break into the Rangers side in a difficult season at Ibrox, things didn’t quite go to plan for Rabbi Matondo initially but with this song how the tide has changed.
