Tragedy casts dark shadow over Rangers victory

Everything else that took place in relation to Rangers’ game at Ibrox on Saturday naturally paled as the full horror of the bus crash involving supporters making their way to the ground later became known. The death of 39-year-old Ryan Baird on the Nith Valley Loyal Rangers supporters bus that overturned at a roundabout near Kilmarnock in an incident that led to a further 18 people being taken to hospital had the club’s goalkeeper Wes Foderingham reeling as he was informed after the game about the tragedy.
