Rangers fans were treated to a spectacular half-time show in last night’s 1-0 win over St. Mirren as a group of fans performed a Chinese Lion Dance to celebrate Chinese New Year.

The entertainment was a wee bit different to the usual fare at Ibrox at half-time as the unique show left fans wowed at the spectacle.

It’s not the first time the Gers have had something a little bit different to keep the fans entertained during the interval with a Mongolian Army band, a Tina Turner impersonator and football freestyler Mr Woo having been out on the pitch in the past.

Here are some of the best comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
