On Friday afternoon, Rangers made an impressive announcement.

It follows a whole spate of new developments at Ibrox over recent weeks.

The club has stated that they are looking to work in collaboration with the supporters and to respond to their wishes.

As part of that, a pilot smoking project was extended for the SPL fixture against Hearts.

Furthermore, Ibrox was spectacularly lit up after the game. Various images and videos were beamed onto the facade of the main stand, in what is an impressive addition to the matchday experience.

Now, the club has made a pioneering move.

That’s by becoming the first professional football club in the UK to introduce the cutting edge OrCam MyEye 2.

It’s an aid for the blind or visually impaired, which can read text and also recognise objects and faces.

The intention is to use the device mainly on stadium tours. However, it can also be used on match days for things like reading programmes.

You can read more about the pioneering move via the club’s website, the video below, or in my summary here.

It’s a fantastic initiative and unsurprisingly, it’s been very well received since being announced on Twitter.

Here’s a selection of reactions to the news:
