RANGERS legends Walter Smith and Sandy Jardine have today launched the ‘Rangers Fans Fighting Fund’
The Fighting Fund urges supporters worldwide to back the club they love by making donations to a secure account that will generate essential revenue throughout the administration process and beyond.
Fans from Govan to America have really stepped up and shown their incredible support for Rangers in what has been a difficult last few weeks and now supporters can make a positive and direct difference to the day to day running of Rangers right now.
The ‘Rangers Fans Fighting Fund’ will allow supporters to make cash donations that will directly affect the club now and will go a long way towards helping secure its future.
This Fund compliments the club’s own initiatives to sell out the remaining games of the season at Ibrox.
Supporters have filled the Stadium for the last two SPL games against Kilmarnock and Hearts and there is little doubt the fans will turn out in huge numbers for the rest of the campaign.
Money raised through the ‘Fighting Fund’ will go to the club’s running costs and supporters can contribute right now to the secured Rangers Assembly bank account.

Walter Smith, Sandy Jardine, Jim Hannah and Rangers Supporters Assembly President Andy Kerr will control the bank account and pass on donations to administrators Duff and Phelps as and when the money is required.
Smith said: “It has been an extremely difficult time for everyone associated with Rangers but the supporters have shown unbelievable commitment to our club throughout the administration process and deserve great credit.

“Now, more than ever, we need their backing and I know hundreds of thousands of supporters will do all they can for the club they love and make a donation to the campaign.”
Ally McCoist said: “I encourage all fans to back the Rangers Fans Fighting Fund and help the club in any way they can, as they have done in recent weeks.
“Our fans have been fantastic. They are showing their true colours and have not walked away during these times of need.
“On behalf of everyone at the club I would like to thank our supporters for all their efforts and I ask them to keep backing us and keep filling Ibrox for matches as their support will make a difference.”
