Steven Gerrard’s side left Glasgow Airport bound for the Czech capital on a plane bearing the club’s new branding to mark their 55th Scottish league title won at the weekend.
A large version of the ‘Rangers 55 champions’ design incorporating the team’s incoming SPFL Premiership trophy, and the club badge, had been placed on the fuselage at the front door and several players paused to pose alongside the signage before take-off.
The images prompted one quick-witted supporter to christen the aeroplane ‘Bear Force One’ to much acclaim from fellow fans. Twitter user @RTVWOW added: “I deserve a 55 scarf for this.”
The branding is on the club’s new range of merchandise to mark the historic league success.
Rangers kick off against the Czech Liga leaders on Thursday evening.
