Popstar to play Glasgow as Rangers fans adopt famous track

Rangers fans have a new hero in John Lundstram and Belinda Carlisle better be well aware of it before she plays a gig in the city this summer.

Etching his name into Ibrox folklore in the process, the catchy rendition of Belinda Carlisle song Heaven is a Place on Earth has been etching its way into the minds of every bluenose.

Your Club's SURPRISE Star This Season

It must’ve been some feeling for John Lundstram to hear 50,000 Rangers fans sing his name like this at full-time against RB Leipzig and it’s a moment that will never be forgotten.

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, here’s the lyrics:

“Oooohh baby do you know what that’s worth,

“John Lundstram is the best on Earth,

“The silky Scouser is just what we need,

“He’s going to win us the Europa League.”

Belinda Carlisle to play Glasgow as Rangers fans adopt song for John Lundstram

But as if by fate, not only might big John do just this, with the help of his teammates of course, but Belinda Carlisle is set to be astounded at the Kelvingrove Bandstand.

Let’s hope the organisers tell the 80s singer what to expect as she takes to the stage in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park this summer.

As part of the annual Summer Night’s shows, Belinda Carlisle will be playing a gig in Glasgow on Friday the 29th of July.

A popular singer in her own right, Carlisle was a singer in the most successful all-female rock band of all-time – the Go Gos – and has a legion of passionate fans.

Of course, Heaven is a Place on Earth is a hotly anticipated track every time she plays but this time around we hope someone has told Belinda Carlisle what to expect.

We suspect that this particular rendition of the pop classic will be particularly emphatic as Belinda Carlisle herself comes to Glasgow to indirectly toast John Lundstram.

Meanwhile, a leading Rangers insider has quelled reports that a key Ibrox first-teamer is set to ‘imminently” sign a new deal.
