Rangers fans everywhere rejoiced as a late James Tavernier penalty won them the game against Dundee United, but none more so apparently than a steward in Ibrox.
Rangers fans clocked a joyous Ibrox steward in a photograph of captain James Tavernier triumphantly celebrating with supporters after netting in the victory.

As fans roared towards the Ibrox skipper, the Gers steward can be seen the right hand bottom corner of the image letting out a yell at the stadium.
The powerful photograph also includes a range of young Gers fans in the singing section of the Broomloan Stand shaking their fists and cheering on the captain.
It’s an iconic image in of itself but it’s the hilarious sighting of the Rangers steward that has had fans buckled come full-time.
Plenty of eagle-eyed supporters spied the happy steward and took to Twitter after the game to point out the on-duty Gers fan on Twitter:

The 1-0 victory over Dundee United sends Rangers seven points clear in the Scottish Premiership and heaps the pressure on rivals Celtic amid a tough festive fixture run.
Rangers can now enjoy eight days off before the clash with St Mirren on boxing day before finishing the first half of the season with ties away to Aberdeen and Celtic.
The Gers certainly weren’t pretty in the win over the Arabs – probably the poorest performance of the Giovanni van Bronckhorst reign to date – but Rangers fans such as the steward at Ibrox will revel in the three points.
There were other benefits to take too – not least surrounding Joe Aribo – but mostly pertaining to the nailed-on spot-kick which earned the Gers the victory.
Despite being in the stonewall category of handball, that hasn’t stopped the moonhowlers coming out in force.
