The brand-new Rangers shop in Glasgow City Centre is set to open tomorrow morning, with Rangers fans buzzing to get in and see it.

The Daily Record reported last night that the shop is set to open from 10am on Saturday. With Glasgow City Centre full of Christmas shoppers and Rangers supporters also excited for the grand opening, it should be a great day for the shop.

But if I was heading to it tomorrow I’d expect queues as people rush to see what’s on offer.

Fans have also been taking to Twitter to express their excitement for the new Rangers shop opening its doors.

Why are people so excited?

First and foremost, it means they can easily buy Rangers merchandise in the City Centre. It’s been a long time since fans have been able to freely buy kits.

The fans staged a boycott after it was revealed the details of a deal with Sports Direct didn’t benefit the club fairly. It is an ongoing battle to this day. This season, fans have been able to buy online, but it’s not really the same.

Opening the store is also a small step in the battle to building the club back up, and tackling Celtic’s reign.

From a tourism and marketing perspective, it’s very important. St. Enoch Square is a prime location. Rangers now have a presence in the City Centre.

And plenty of fans will be there to see it open tomorrow morning.
