Rangers ‘Ready and Willing’ to Allow Ibrox to be Used by NHS in Covid-19 Battle

Rangers ‘Ready and Willing’ to Allow Ibrox to be Used by NHS in Covid-19 Battle

The Rangers hierarchy are ‘ready and willing’ to allow their iconic Ibrox Stadium to be used by the NHS in the ongoing fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Like all of their domestic rivals, Steven Gerrard’s Gers haven’t kicked a ball in several weeks since football was suspended in an attempt to delay the spread of the Covid-19 disease, and it remains to be seen when the Beautiful Game will return.

In the meantime, as per Sky Sports News, the Scottish Premiership side will offer NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde access to their stadium in what could be a similar arrangement set-up by Spanish giants Real Madrid, who have allowed medical supplies to be stored inside their Santiago Bernabeu ground.

A Rangers spokesman was quoted as saying: “This week we have shown our appreciation for the tireless work of NHS staff.

“As an institution, we value the contribution of the NHS across the United Kingdom.

“We are open to assisting the NHS in any viable form. This week, we offered free parking for NHS workers in local facilities.

“We are ready and willing to help in any way we can, in line with government guidelines.”

The offer comes at the end of a eventful week for Rangers, despite no football being played, with Dave King stepping down as chairman and Graeme Souness throwing his hat into the ring to return to his former club in ‘some capacity’.

What do you think of the offer, and should more Premiership sides follow suit?
