Rangers meet with “important people” in London in 150th celebration event

Rangers are hosting a special event in the shadow of the Houses of Parliament in London as the club continues to celebrate their 150th anniversary.

The event was revealed by Heart & Hand as they attend alongside a variety of “important people” and the club promote its achievements over the last century and a half.

Speaking to someone at the Evening Standard, Heart & Hand also claim that this kind of event is a regular occurrence for clubs around the UK.

A report on the event will be released on the popular fan media channel via Heart & Hand’s Daily Update, available to Patreon subscribers.

The event comes at a time when the Rangers fans and board are at a real disconnect over the fall-out of the proposed friendly with Celtic in Australia.

Rangers supporters are eager to get the match at the Sydney Super Cup called off whilst fans group and shareholders Club 1872 added fuel to the fire with an explosive statement this week.

Rangers 150th celebrations overshadowed by infighting

That statement took aim at several Rangers directors and the running of the club with Rangers responding in kind.

Fans appear to have been somewhat left in the middle of this Boardroom tug of war.

The support have heavily protested the friendly in recent weeks – including by interrupting play three times in the 2-1 win over Dundee – and the pressure is mounting to reverse the decision.

The entire thing is a literal shambles and comes with the Rangers team in the hunt on three fronts ahead of a season-defining run in April.

Thankfully, club football has been shelved for a fortnight and as the players rest up, Rangers fans will be hoping this nonsense is put to bed before the season resumes against Celtic on April 3rd.

Celebrations surrounding the 150th anniversary continue as the club host a special Weekend of Legend match at Ibrox this weekend.

Meanwhile, an ex-Rangers and Barcelona star has been speaking about his imminent return to Ibrox.
