RANGERS will remember those who died in the Ibrox Disaster with a wreath-laying ceremony outside the stadium prior to Saturday’s match.

Honorary president John Greig and club directors will place a wreath at the Ibrox Disaster Memorial plinth on Edmiston Drive as the club pays its respects to the 66 Rangers fans who lost their lives on the 2nd January 1971.

A minute’s silence will also be observed prior to kick-off on Saturday.

It is to be hoped the 60 seconds will be observed properly and that decency will prevail over any rivalries. The period of silence is about one thing and one thing only – honouring the memory of the 66 fans who left their homes to go to a football match and never returned.

Celtic directors will attend the wreath laying ceremony and Rangers acknowledges their wish that supporters observe the minute’s silence impeccably.
