Rangers are set to begin life back in the Scottish Premiership with a huge card display setting out the club’s intentions for the season ahead.

Before their match with Hamilton this Saturday - the curtain raiser for the 2016/17 Scottish football season - fans in the Sandy Jardine stand will be asked to collectively announce “going for 55” through a card display that will take up half of the Govan end.

It references Rangers’ 54 top flight titles, the last of which occurred in 2011 before the club’s financial meltdown.

The display will occur prior to kick-off, where Rangers will also unfurl the Championship flag having won the second tier last season.

Though Celtic are favourites to make it six Scottish Premiership titles on the trot, Mark Warburton and his players believe they are capable of finishing on top in their first season back.
