RANGERS yesterday welcomed eleven year old Lee Welsh to Murray Park to meet manager Mark Warburton, the players and his staff.
Lee was recently diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is is currently midway through his treatment plan. He was invited to join the Gers for training yesterday and met with the whole team and manager.
He was taken on a guided tour of the Gers facility, meeting his favourite players, having lunch in the canteen surrounded by the Light Blues stars and even taking part in the day’s press conference with Mark Warburton.
Lee and his family are from Larbert and are season ticket holders in the Copland Rear, being part of the Archie Gray Memorial Rangers Supporters Club. The youngster is a junior boxer and he took pride in showing the players his boxing shorts and medals that he’s won.
Speaking on social media after the visit yesterday, Lee’s dad said: “Massive thanks to Mark Warburton and Davie Weir who were simply class from the offset. Mark made sure we were welcomed with open arms and could not do enough for our wee champ.
“Thanks also to the players and staff who proved our club is simply the best.”
