Glasgow Rangers and their fans could hardly be happier with their start to the 2020/21 campaign.
The Gers are currently top of the Premiership table after the first six matches of the campaign, with them winning five of them – they have not yet even conceded a goal. Not only that, they have opened up a six-point lead over their fierce city rivals Celtic, although the Bhoys do have two games in hand to level things up at the top.
All teams in Scotland are now in the middle of a two-week break due to the international fixtures being in full flow. The 54-time Scottish champions, though, are still at work, and they have announced that, on Friday, they will be honouring the Merchant Navy by flying a flag at Ibrox.
Are you happy with this decision?
This has attracted the attention of the Gers supporters, and they appear to be delighted that the club has decided to honour those who played such a big part in the war efforts. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
This has brought a tear to my eye. What a club. Rule Britannia

Thank you Rangers for recognising our Merchant Navy and it’s Seafarers.
Delighted to confirm the flag has now been donated to the club for next years #MerchantNavyDay!
