Rangers are “ready and willing” to open their doors to the NHS in order to support the healthcare services during the coronavirus outbreak, a club source has revealed.
Speaking to the Scottish Sun, the source claimed that Rangers would be delighted to help as the country is gripped by the infection.
The news comes after Premier League champions Manchester City offered the health service the use of the Etihad’s facilities [Sky Sports].
“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.”
According to the Sun report, this includes the use of Ibrox with the stadium set to lie dormant until the return of the football league season.
The news come after Rangers opened up the Albion Car Park to NHS workers [Club 1872] with the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital nearby to the stadium.
The proximity of Ibrox to the new super hospital puts Rangers in a unique position where their facilities could be off great help to the health service in their time of need.
These latest comments from the club further solidify the role of health workers as the true heroes of the global pandemic.
