Rangers fans travelled in their drones to support their side in Wednesday night’s Europa League final – and Greg Docherty and George Edmundson have joined them. Docherty posted a picture on his Instagram story.
After a stunning run which sees Rangers pitted in the final against Frankfurt, the Gers are preparing to take on the German side as we write. They have beaten the likes of Leipzig, Dortmund and Braga on the way.
The BBC report up to 100,000 fans travelled to Seville to cheer their team on against Frankfurt, while less than a tenth of that have tickets – 9,500. However, more are believed to have been allocated in recent days.
It is not only fans, but ex-Rangers players are soaking up the party atmosphere. Ipswich defender Edmundson, and Hull midfielder Docherty are in Seville – having left the Gers during Steven Gerrard’s reign.
Ahead of the game, Docherty posted a picture of himself and Edmundson in a Seville bar alongside other Rangers fans before the game. The duo only amassed a combined 36 appearances during their time at Ibrox.
While Docherty and Edmundson did not make it, they were teammates with plenty of current Rangers stars about to take to the field. James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Allan McGregor and more. It shows the affect Rangers has.
Unlike many other clubs, players leave Rangers but remain a fan. The Gers need to win if they want to match Celtic and be a part of next season’s Champions League group stages. Defeat, and it is the Europa League again.
