Ninth tier English club White Ensign FC are set to release a special Rangers kit after floods of Ibrox supporters began following the club on Twitter.

Named after the famous navy flag of the same name, Rangers fans have also been asked which colour they would prefer the jersey to be between blue and orange.

According to the club’s official Twitter account, the jersey will be worn on away games and in cup games as they celebrate the link-up between the two sides.

This comes after White Ensign’s Twitter account blew up with Rangers followers following a call to arms aimed at the Ibrox club’s supporters.

White Ensign had asked Rangers fans if they liked the club’s crest and colours following Celtic fans teaming up with Catholic United.

Celtic fans flooded the green and white hooped account after they signed Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers, who used to play for the club.

Southend-based Catholic United play in the 11th tier of the English game in the Essex Olympian Football League.

Whilst local rivals White Ensign play in two divisions higher in the Essex Senior Football League, it didn’t stop them stoking the rivalry between supporters.

This worked in the club’s favour as Rangers fans drew on their proud military traditions and followed the club in the spirit of rivalry.

The football club also claimed that the reaction of Gers fans on Twitter saw their official Twitter account grow by 5000 supporters overnight.

The White Ensign, at one time called the St George’s Ensign due to the simultaneous existence of a cross-less version of the flag, is an ensign worn on British Royal Navy ships and shore establishments.

It consists of a red St George’s Cross on a white field with the Union Flag in the upper canton.

Rangers fans will now be following the progress of White Ensign FC closely and we’re sure Celtic fans will be doing the same for their Southend representatives.

Meanwhile, a respected broadcaster has been lauding the Ibrox legions as “phenomenal” in the aftermath of the club’s weekend Old Firm victory.
