A Ross County staffer has branded Rangers Remembrance Sunday tributes “something really special” as he complimented the Ibrox club.

County brand development officer Dale Pryde-MacDonald took to Twitter to praise Rangers for a series of special tributes ahead of the clash between the two clubs.

Rangers fans unveiled a special Remembrance Sunday display in the Sandy Jardine stand whilst there was also a tifo unveiled in the Broomloan.

The Gers also invited acting service personnel to the ground for the game before a minute’s silence for the country’s war dead was impeccably observed.

Special cannons sounded to signal the end of the silence and wreaths were laid by both influential Rangers figures and those from Ross County.

These included Ross County CEO Steve Ferguson and club chairman Roy MacGregor.

The Ibrox club’s commitment to Remembrance Sunday and remembering the sacrifice of those who fell in the Great Wars clearly had a profound effect on MacDonald.

“Each club and team does it differently but today’s remembrance event at Ibrox was something really special,” tweets MacDonald.

“From our CEO and Chairman laying a wreath with Rangers representatives to the service workers firing the canons a truly unique experience.”

Ross County staffer brands Rangers Remembrance Sunday tributes as “special”

Rangers have always taken great pride in their Remembrance Sunday tributes as the club remember those who’ve given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

The club has a proud military history and this is showcased through Remembrance Sunday and other events such as Armed Forces Day at Ibrox.

This is something which is echoed by Ross County who have “long associated roots” with those who serve in the armed forces.

Rangers ran out 4-2 victors on the day against Ross County with goals from Joe Aribo, Ryan Kent, Juninho Bacuna, and an Alex Iacovitti own goal the difference.

Joseph Hungbo had given Ross County the lead with Jordan White adding a late consolation.

Rangers fans also had cause to celebrate beyond the three points as a key player officially made his return to the side.
