Rangers fans tend to get everywhere with one bluenose even managing to get on live TV after being filmed in the crowd at the Australian Open.

During the BBC’s coverage of the tennis event in Melbourne, a man is clearly seen in the background of the shot wearing a black and orange Rangers training top.

But far from getting excited about the fact that someone’s wearing a Rangers top on TV – it’s more about what the fan does when he notices the camera is running.

As the BBC’s live broadcast into events at the tournament begins, the cheeky Rangers fan notices that the cameras are running.

Instinctively the gentleman kisses the Ibrox club’s badge and gives it a pat in the hope that someone somewhere might see it.

Well, there has been a couple of eagle-eyed Rangers fans on Twitter who picked up on the supporter’s presence in the background of the BBC’s coverage of the Australian Open.
