Rangers congratulate bluenose tennis star on latest Grand Slam

Rangers have sent a message of support to Australian Open 2021 wheelchair tennis Doubles Champions Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewett as they scored their 10th Grand Slam.

The top seeds for the tournament came through 7-5 7-6 (7-3) against French pair Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer to win their fifth Grand Slam in a row.

Wheelchair tennis hero Gordon Reid MBE is a ginormous bluenose and a proud Rangers supporter who is also a British Paralympian, appearing at the Beijing Paralympics in 2008, the first time tennis was included at the games.

Reid also won Paralympic gold at Rio 2016 where the Rangers fan won silver with doubles partner Hewett, whom he actually beat in the final.


The pair are British Paralympian legends and amongst the greatest in the world at wheelchair tennis, with Reid also speaking about his love of the Gers and this season’s charge to 55 with Sky Sports.

“I’m trying not to let myself celebrate until the title’s won mathematically,” said Red [Sky Sports].

“That’s been an added boost to the trip out here, seeing the results come in overnight and one win closer to the title.

“It’s been an amazing season so far for all the guys and Steven Gerrard and they deserve to be champions and hopefully they’re crowned that very soon and the blue side of Glasgow can enjoy that back home.”

Rangers are within four wins of title glory after seeing off Kilmarnock at the weekend with fans early counting down the wins to 55.

Rangers legend Ally McCoist has claimed the moment the club clinches it will be amongst the most emotional in the history of Ibrox.
