There is a “realistic chance” a Rangers fan campaign can mobilising the RAF’s Red Arrows to fly over Ibrox in celebration of 55 following an extraordinary fan response.
That’s according to the event organisers the Bridgeton Loyal Rangers Supporters Club, who’ve already raised over £45k for the event to take place.
More contact been made with numerous people in the RAF, still a lot of work to be done, but we have a realistic chance of getting this done, We Are The People 🏆✈️🇬🇧

The RSC smashed its £15 funding target within hours of the campaign being launched but due to Covid-19 there are clear fears that securing the Arrows might be not be possible.
The group have pledged to give the money to charity should that be the case, but fans will be buoyed by the news that negotiations are progressing well.
“More contact been made with numerous people in the RAF, still a lot of work to be done, but we have a realistic chance of getting this done, We Are The People,” reads a Tweet on the Bridgeton Loyal RSC’s Twitter page.
The group have also upped the target to £55,555 in honour of the club’s 55th title with the Red Arrows also being tasked with flying over Bridgeton Cross should the move come to fruition.
Whatever happens, it’s been a superb fundraising effort by the Gers fans with at least some cash sure to benefit charities.

However, at this rate, the Bridgeton Loyal may have to speed up their negotiations.
Celtic continue to collapse with their latest result hampering some Rangers fans’ hopes of winning the title at Parkhead.
