Rangers: Gers will ‘defy’ UEFA ban and sing National Anthem

Rangers: Gers will ‘defy’ UEFA ban and sing National Anthem -Rangers News

The Daily Mail journalist Mike Keegan has revealed that Glasgow Rangers will ‘defy’ the UEFA ban and sing the National Anthem at Ibrox this evening.

The Lowdown: UEFA ban

As per Keegan, UEFA have turned down requests from British clubs to play the National Anthem ahead of games in European competition this week, to pay their respects following the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team were among those who asked for the Anthem to be played, as they prepare to face Napoli in Glasgow.

The Latest: Rangers will ‘defy’ ban

Taking to Twitter in an update after the original news, Keegan has now revealed that the Gers will ‘defy’ the ban set by UEFA, and sing the National Anthem after a period of silence in memory of the Queen:

“It’s my understanding that Rangers will defy the UEFA ban and sing the National Anthem after the period of silence tomorrow night in memory of the Queen ahead of their match with Napoli at Ibrox.”

The Verdict: Right call

It is the right call for the Light Blues to sing the National Anthem in order to pay their respects to the Queen properly, in the first game that they will play after her passing, after all professional football matches in Great Britain were postponed over the weekend.

Should Rangers have hired van Bronckhorst?





Singing the Anthem should give the players and supporters a huge uplift, not only offering a once in a lifetime moment of poignancy for all in attendance but also lifting the atmosphere on a special night for their home opener.

Nonetheless, Van Bronckhorst will be looking for a reaction after they were thrashed 4-0 by Ajax on match-day one, and singing the National Anthem should only bring positivity in and around Ibrox.
