Rangers fans urged to partake in special Ibrox tribute to tragic teenage fan

An Ibrox tribute is being planned for a talented Rangers fan teenage chef who suddenly passed away after an asthma attack at work.

Lauren Reid, 19, passed away this week after suffering a massive asthma and heart attack whilst at work in Gin71 in Glasgow City Centre.

Lauren took ill during her shift on the 7th of February but tragically never regained consciousness and died in hospital four days after the attacks.

A passionate bluenose, Lauren was said to wearing a Rangers top and Fernando Ricksen scarf upon her passing [Scottish Sun].

Lauren’s devastated mother, Elaine Cunningham, was forced to switch off Lauren’s life-support machine.

Since then tributes have flooded in in support of the talented youngster and her family, with the tragedy striking a chord with Rangers fans in particular.

As a result, the club’s supporters are being encouraged to partake in a minute’s applause for the youngster at this weekend’s tie with Livingston.

This is scheduled to take part in the 19th minute and will be a great source of comfort to Lauren’s young family who will be devastated by their loss.

All Rangers supporters attending Saturday’s match are being encouraged to join in and the tribute is even being supported by famous Rangers bar the Louden Tavern.
