RANGERS Football Club are deeply saddened to learn of a dreadful accident involving a coach carrying supporters to this afternoon’s match at Ibrox.

Our profound condolences go to the gentleman who has died and our thoughts are with his family. We are also thinking of those who have been injured and taken to hospital.

Rangers Managing Director Stewart Robertson said: “Everyone at the football club and every member of our Rangers family is thinking of all of those caught up in this terrible accident. Clearly this is a deeply distressing time and the Board extend our deepest sympathies and concerns.

“While winning today’s match was of vital importance everything that happened on the pitch between 3pm and 5pm pales into insignificance in light of this awful news.”

The Club asks that at this time the media refrain from attempting to contact the families and relatives of those involved.
