Rangers fans are arranging a special tribute to a diehard supporter this weekend after he tragically passed away last week.

Grant Armitage sadly lost his battle with cancer after spending more than six years battling the disease. Grant not only loved Glasgow Rangers, but he gave much of his life following them. This fitting tribute is about celebrating that fact.

In the 28th minute of Sunday’s match with Hamilton, supporters are being encouraged to engage in a minute’s applause in his honour. It is a touching tribute to the diehard bluenose but will also mean a lot to his family.

It is a small token of appreciation and remembrance to a popular figure amongst the support. Grant travelled all over to follow “his beloved Rangers near and far.”

Fans are eager to show their appreciation.


A man very close to the club he loved

Not only did Grant go to every Rangers game he could, but he was also recognised by the club on several occasions. He was selected by the Rangers Charity Foundation for a Dream Day last season and also had a visit from Sone Aluko in 2012.

It’s such a crying shame someone so young has passed away from cancer. It will also mean so much for Grant’s family that Rangers fans band together and celebrate his life with this short applause.

If you’re attending the Hamilton match, then please join in on the 28th minute. However, even f you’re not, please share this information far and wide.

It is the least Rangers and the Rangers fans can do for a supporter who dedicated much of his life to the club he loved.
