Rangers have officially sold out their season tickets for a sixth season running as hopes grow about fans returning to Ibrox Stadium ahead of next season.
In what proved to be a legendary campaign for the club, Steven Gerrard and his team wrestled back control of the Scottish Premiership with a stunning unbeaten campaign.
🙌 45,000 Season Tickets.

Heading into next season expectations have risen with success but once again the club’s players will have the backing of this enormous, passionate support.
The club confirmed via their official website that 45k season tickets had been sold ahead of the new campaign in remarkable numbers given the state of play with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rangers say they have also been “humbled” by the backing of corporate hospitality clients who have once again sold-out seasonal hospitality places.
The support was saluted by First Team Coach Michael Beale who took Twitter to salute the contribution of the club’s fans who he described as “incredible”.
Incredible – we look forward to seeing you all at Ibrox soon 💙 https://t.co/njmqKYPvRr

This news also comes at a time when hopes are building regarding a return to the stadium next season – even if this may only be in limited numbers.
Rangers fans never got a glimpse of inside Ibrox last season but from the 19th of July Scotland’s current road map would allow 2000 spectators into grounds.
Other stadiums can apply for special dispensation and at the moment, the 9th of August is set as the date when fans can fully return to grounds [Guardian].
