A young soldier and huge Rangers fan who tragically took his own life is to be remembered with a minute’s applause during Thursday’s match with Maribor.

“Diehard Rangers fan” and 4 Scots sniper Jamie Davies served for his country but struggled with PTSD after returning home.

The tributes have been led by close friends and colleagues of the Highlanders soldier and momentum is gathering for a 14th minute round of applause in his honour.


Fans across social media are sharing and commenting on the very touching Ibrox tribute.

Jamie leaves behind wife Sam and two young children, and his passing is a reminder of the fragility of life and the danger of mental health issues. The social media campaign has also sought to raise awareness of PTSD and the impact is has on soldiers.

The tribute will mean a huge deal to Jamie’s young family and fans are being encouraged to stand up and join in to this fitting compliment to a popular young man.

Rangers fans will be hoping the players produce a fitting tribute on the field also on what will be an emotional night south of the River Clyde.
