Rangers send series of tributes following death of Queen Elizabeth II

Rangers have paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with a series of special commemorations in the wake of the British Monarch’s death.

The Gers took to social media in the aftermath of the Queen’s passing at the age of 96 to signify the club’s sadness on Thursday 8th September 2022.

Rangers would then fly the Union Flag at half-mast from Ibrox Stadium to acknowledge the death of the ruling Monarch.

Players and staff at the Rangers Training Centre then observed a minute’s silence in honour of her Majesty the following day.

The Rangers Management and Directors would then lay a wreath at Ibrox Stadium in commemoration of Queen Elizabeth II.

Rangers’ weekend trip to Pittodrie was postponed as a result of the Queen’s death – along with all other professional football matches in the country – and as of yet it has not been rearranged.

The club’s Champions League clash with Napoli remains up in the air with the United Kingdom observing a week of mourning in honour of the Monarch.

Queen Elizabeth II served as the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Commonwealth for over 70 years, making her the longest serving Monarch in British history and the longest recorded serving female head of state in world history.

As the country mourns the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and celebrates the coronation of King Charles III the Royal Family continues to hold traditional and special significance at Ibrox.

The Loving Cup ceremony – the Gers receiving the special cup from Stoke City chairman Sir Joseph France after their efforts to raise money after the Holditch Colliery Disaster – also toasts the reigning monarch.

Rangers fans also regularly sing God Save the Queen – the British national anthem – at the end of the club’s matches.

Meanwhile, the Rangers women team are set to play their upcoming Champions League clash at Ibrox.
