They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and Rangers fans will be glad to hear a newly promoted Premier League club down south have taken inspiration from a legendary Ibrox fan display.
Rangers Ultras the Union Bears stunned the world back in May when they took to the banks of the River Clyde the evening before the club’s trophy day to ignite them in celebration.
Hundreds of the supporters from the group stood on the Clyde walkway in Glasgow’s city centre and simultaneously ignited flares in a glorious display that captured the attention of supporters.
The supporters would then join in a raucous rendition of Championees in a memorable moment from a memorable weekend.
It wasn’t missed by those outside of Rangers either and the display captured the imagination of fans of football from around the world.
Now, Brentford fans have appeared to imitate the celebrations themselves as they took to Kew Bridge over the Thames to celebrate their promotion.

Brentford are now in the Premier League after wining the English Championship Playoff Final by beating Swansea City 2-0.
Promotion to the Premier League is believed to be worth at least £170m to the club’s coffers and supporters can look forward to facing off against the likes of Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea next season.
One reported Rangers target was also at Wembley in a Playoff Final over the weekend – albeit at a much lower level in English League Two – and netted the winner to earn his side promotion.
