Rangers fans have been applauding the Ibrox club for being willing to open their doors to the NHS during the coronavirus outbreak [Scottish Sun].
With Ibrox Stadium only a couple of miles away from Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University hospital and with plenty of conference space the stadium could be used as a hub for NHS workers.
Whilst there’s been no official movement in this regard it would be a decidedly positive move for Rangers and give the health service and its volunteers much-needed space.
The news that the Gers have offered their stadium to the NHS comes with the club very vocal over their support for the nation’s health workers throughout the crisis.
Rangers opened up the Albion Car Park to NHS workers [Club 1872] and also joined in the clap for carers and publicly thanked NHS staff for their work during the crisis.
“This week we have shown our appreciation for the tireless work of NHS staff,” said a Rangers spokesperson [Scottish Sun].
“As an institution, we value the contribution of the NHS across the United Kingdom.
“We are open to assisting the NHS in any viable form. This week, we offered free parking for NHS workers in local facilities.
“We are ready and willing to help in any way we can, in line with government guidelines.”
The decision to offer to open Ibrox’s doors for the NHS has Rangers fans applauding the club on Twitter:

Rangers open to NHS using Ibrox amid coronavirus fight
Outstanding from the club
Could’ve just threw some money at the situation but want to go a step farther and allow the NHS to use Ibrox to help out
