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.
With Chinese New Year rapidly approaching, the Lion Dance appeared to go down well with supporters, with many taking to Twitter to rave about what they had seen.
Given the lack of entertainment on the pitch during the game itself, it will have been a welcome distraction for fans as a stuffy St. Mirren looked to frustrate Steven Gerrard’s side.
While there were one or two negative comments, it is Twitter after all, the majority of fans appeared to have enjoyed it – with one saying that their son was “raving” about it after the game.
Here are some of the best comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:

Fantastic, my 10 year old son was at the game and he came home telling me about it, said the game wasn’t great but was raving about the half time display
