Rangers fans were treated to a surprise official club feature on Friday afternoon.
Ant Middleton, star of TV programme SAS: Who Dares Wins, visited The Hummel Training Centre and the best bits were caught on camera.

The former soldier is a Gers fans. Therefore, it will have been a big day for the 38-year-old, who met Steven Gerrard and several first-team players.
During the feature, legendary figure Mark Hateley shows Middleton around the training facilities.
He meets youth team players, before bumping into long-term absentee Jamie Murphy.
It’s clear he’s no plastic fan, either, as he can be seen asking the winger about his recovery.
Gary McAllister and Stevie G are next on the meet and greet before he encounters the legendary Jimmy Bell. Much to the amusement of the touring party, he even gets a smile out of the popular kit man.
The club made sure he didn’t leave empty-handed either. His namesake, Glenn, presented with him with a Gers home shirt.
Plenty of Bears really enjoyed the rather out of the blue two-minute feature.
Here’s a selection of reactions:
Super @antmiddleton he's one of our own. 🇬🇧
