Rangers are set to open up Ibrox’s Albion car park for NHS workers [Club 1872] as the frontline health staff prepare for battle with the invisible enemy that is the coronavirus.

The Ibrox club are doing their part to make sure there is space for the nation’s health workers and there’s little doubt that if the club can do more, they will do more.

Taking to social media to send a special message to supporters, Rangers also thanked the NHS for their work and urged fans to stay indoors and help protect it.

Both these moves from Rangers highlight that which most of us already know and which the remaining must embrace quickly and swiftly.

These people – the doctors, nurses, volunteers and everyone in between – are the true heroes of this pandemic around the world and what we can do to help them we must.


For us – those working at home, furloughed or even forced indoors – this means staying in our homes. No matter how difficult it becomes.

If we go out and flaunt the rules, we run the risk of infection and overwhelming those people who are already putting their bodies and health on the line for us.

There is a limited amount of space, beds and ventilators with NHS staff likely to be forced into making heartbreaking, soul-destroying decisions for the betterment of us all.

When all is said and done here, it is the NHS who we must look to, to thank, cherish and support for standing firm and holding back the wave under incredibly difficult circumstances.

Let’s make sure that whilst these extraordinary people fight in the trenches for us, that we do our bit for them.
