Rangers fans asked for donations

Rangers have launched a "Rangers Fans Fighting Fund" to help meet running costs while the club is in administration.

The Rangers manager, Ally McCoist, and his predecessor Walter Smith have been joined by former defender Sandy Jardine in endorsing the move to urge supporters to make donations to help the club. Smith, Jardine, the supporters liaison manager Jim Hannah and Rangers Supporters Assembly president Andy Kerr will control the bank account and pass on donations to the administrators, Duff & Phelps, as and when the money is required.

Rangers' two home games since the club entered administration on 14 February, against Kilmarnock and Hearts, have both sold out.
