IBROX was a sea of Union flags prior to this afternoon’s Old Firm fixture as fans once again got behind Ally McCoist’s team and helped raise a massive amount of money for the Rangers Fans Fighting Fund.
In a great initiative, supporters were able to get hold of a flag in the build-up to the Glasgow derby, with a minimum donation of £2, and all of the money raised will go straight to the Fighting Fund.
The fund, launched on March 13, has already pulled in well over six figures and money is coming in all the time.
A total of 43,000 flags were available in the build-up to the game, which Rangers won 3-2, and this only added to the electric pre-match atmosphere as both teams walked on to the Ibrox pitch.
The Rangers Fans Fighting Fund allows supporters to make cash donations that directly affect the club now and will go a long way towards helping secure its future.
The 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 three SPL games against Kilmarnock, Hearts and today against Celtic and there is little doubt they will turn out in huge numbers for the rest of the campaign.
