Rangers have issued important information to supporters via email regarding tributes for Walter Smith ahead of tonight’s clash with Aberdeen.

The league fixture is the first Gers match since the club legend sadly passed away.

Tributes have poured in from around the footballing world since the club announced the devastating news yesterday morning.

High-profile players and coaches have praised the former Rangers manager and chairman for his football brain, kindness and values, while fans have already suggested that a stand at Ibrox be named after him.

Rangers directors, players and staff laid a wreath at Ibrox this afternoon, while shirts, scarves and flowers have built up at the stadium’s famous gates.

 

The fixture against the Dons is almost sold out and the club issued important information to supporters via email at around 4.30pm.

‘The Rangers family have lost one of our icons and tonight, we will be remembering Walter Smith ahead of the match with Aberdeen.’

‘A minute’s silence will be held prior to kick-off, and with that and also the number of supporters paying their respects outside the stadium, we encourage all supporters to arrive earlier than normal.’

The email then goes on to remind fans of road closures due to COP26, including the Clydeside Expressway, before confirming that vaccine passport checks ‘will be in place’.

The heavy rain that has fallen in Glasgow throughout the day is also likely to impact travel.

It’s going to be an extremely emotional night at Ibrox as a true legend is remembered.
