Rangers have announced that they plan to mark Remembrance Day during Sunday’s clash against Motherwell at Ibrox.

With the League Cup semi-final against Hearts at Hampden taking place the following weekend, before a trip to Livingston in the league on the 10th of next month, Sunday’s game is the closest home tie to the 11th November.

Rangers Remembrance plans

As usual, there will be a number of actions inside the ground in order to pay respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Prior to kick-off, there will be a ‘special Remembrance card display’ from those seated in the Sandy Jardine Stand, while two veterans will lead the teams out, with current serving personnel carrying a poppy to the centre-circle. The minute’s silence which follows will be started and ended by the firing of an artillery gun.

Just as they did last season, in a game which coincidentally was also against Motherwell, the Gers team will wear special playing shirts featuring poppies. The shirts will be donated after the game in order to raise funds for veterans and serving personnel.

There will also be a can collection in aid of Poppyscotland, an organisation which supports ex-servicemen and women, and their families.
