Rangers have offered the use of one of the club’s car parks to any NHS, police or military workers who may require it during the coronavirus pandemic.

A statement from Ibrox fans’ group Club 1872 said the collective had held talks with the club over the past few days in a bid to identify ways they could support key workers in Glasgow.

Gers chiefs have now confirmed that the Albion Car Park, opposite the stadium, will be open to all health workers, Police Scotland employees and members of the British Army.

Ordinarily the club charges patrons £10 to use the car park.

A Club 1872 statement read: “We suggested to Rangers that the Albion Car Park might be utilised by NHS staff at the nearby Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

“We are delighted to say the club has now confirmed that they have made the offer of free use of the car park to the NHS, Police Scotland and the British Army, should any of them be able to utilise it.

“Whilst the practicalities of any such use are still to be worked out, we are very proud that our club has stepped up with this offer of assistance and we will continue to liaise with them over any similar opportunities over the coming weeks.

“Club 1872 would like to take this opportunity to offer our sincere thanks to all key workers across the UK for their selfless work during the COVID-19 outbreak.”
