Rangers Fans Plan to Honour Bus Crash Victim During Next Home Game

Rangers Fans Plan to Honour Bus Crash Victim During Next Home Game

Rangers fans are preparing to pay tribute to Ryan Baird, the Gers supporter killed in a bus crash on his way to yesterday’s 2-0 victory over Patrick Thistle at Ibrox.

The 39-year-old lifelong Rangers fan from Larne lost his life after a coach taking the Nith Valley Loyal Rangers Supporters’ Club to Ibrox crashed on the A76 at the Crossroads roundabout near Kilmarnock on Saturday afternoon, with eighteen other taken to hospital.

On Saturday night, football fans from clubs all over Scotland, and Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths, paid tribute to Baird on social media, with the sporting community obviously shaken and distraught at the tragic events.

And now, Rangers fans on Twitter are already getting plans underway to honour their fellow Bear appropriately, with a minute’s applause planned for the club’s next home game:

Judging by the amount of times the suggestion has been retweeted, and the responses to the tweet, it looks like the idea has the backing of the Gers fan base, and it remains to be seen if the club plan their own tribute.

Rangers’ next home match is actually more than three weeks away against St. Johnstone, with trips to Inverness and Hearts, and the League Cup semi-final against Celtic at Hampden, to come before hand.

What do you make of the plans?
