Glasgow Rangers match day announcement

At half-time, the Band of HM Royal Marines performed on the hallowed Ibrox turf, joined by 12 representatives from each of the three Forces – all to a standing ovation from a 48,000-strong capacity crowd, as the public address system declared:

“The club is proud to be able to recognise the sterling work of the Royal Navy, Army and RAF and we are honoured to be able to show our appreciation for those who are the true heroes in life.”

Rangers helps veterans into employment, backs Service charities and gets involved in community projects which target serving and veteran personnel and their families.  

Serving members of the Armed Forces who present their military ID at the ticket centre will now receive 25 per cent off tickets for home fixtures (subject to availability).

The covenant was signed on what ’gers termed Armed Services Day, with collection buckets taking fans’ donations on behalf of the Rangers Charity Foundation’s Armed Forces Partnership, Erskine, PoppyScotland, Combat Stress and The Rifles Regimental Trust’s Care for Casualties appeal.

A donation of £1 from every matchday programme sold also went into the buckets.
