Rangers have made an appeal to supporters to use the Ibrox Stadium SeatSub service if they can’t make the game against Motherwell to ensure the ground is full for Flag Day.

The Gers are preparing to unfurl the Championship Flag for the first time in 10 years in what promises to be a remarkably emotional moment for supporters.

Motherwell will prove stern opposition but many fans will be hoping the emotion of the day can help kickstart what’s been a rather lacklustre opening to the season.

But as Rangers look to ensure a full Ibrox for the match, they’ve sent an appeal to season ticket holders asking them to upload their seat to the SeatSub service if they can’t make the game.

By doing so, those supporters who don’t make the match will earn credit back on their season ticket renewal next season.

The Ibrox club have also encouraged supporters to arrive in the ground 15 minutes before kick-off (2:45pm) to see the flag being raised.

“For the lucky 50,000 who will be at Ibrox for Flag Day, please aim to arrive at Ibrox for 2:45pm,” reads a Rangers statement.

 

“If you can’t make the match, be sure to take advantage of SeatSub and release your seat for another supporter to attend while getting credit back towards your season ticket next season.”

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has also been speaking ahead of the Flag Day, which is a moment to reflect on the progress made at Ibrox after a decade of struggles.

But for the Gers manager, the focus is and always has been on securing three points.

“Yeah, I think the fans deserve that moment,” said Gerrard [Rangers].

“Unfortunately it couldn’t be at the beginning of the season, we’ve had to be patient but I think it’s all about the fans enjoying that, they deserve it and we’re really pleased for them that they can enjoy that.

“We’ll obviously be aware of it and we’ll respect it of course, but for me the key thing at the weekend is to try and take three points, simple as that.”

One group of people who won’t be in atendance are the SPFL electorate after Rangers took their own decision regarding the Champions Flag.
