RANGERS continued preparations for tomorrow’s match whilst showing their support for Scottish Autism at training.
The Gers each wore a t-shirt to raise awareness that the club and the Rangers Charity Foundation will celebrate their National Partnership with Scottish Autism at the Dundee match at Ibrox tomorrow.
Prior to kick-off and at half-time, a specially created short film will be shown on the big screens in the Stadium, depicting the journey made by Jack, a young autistic Rangers fan, as he comes to see his favourite team play at Ibrox.
Based on the real life experiences of autistic people and their families, the short-film, which features a cameo by Rangers legend Mark Hateley, aims to portray how a simple journey for some, can be more challenging for an autistic person, with all its accompanying sights, sounds and other sensory challenges.
Last week, the Foundation also launched a new football programme for children aged between nine and 12 who are autistic. The youngsters will take part in 90 minute training sessions once a month at The Rangers Football Centre with Rangers community coaches, who have undergone autism awareness training from Scottish Autism.
