A minute’s applause is to be held at Ibrox in tribute to Rangers supporter Ryan Baird who died in a coach crash on Saturday. It is scheduled to take place during the upcoming match against St Johnstone.
The tribute was proposed by a St Johnstone FC supporters’ group on Twitter yesterday and has been shared more than 500 times.
The applause will be held during the 39th minute of the match in memory of the 39-year-old life-long Rangers fan, who tragically died last Saturday when the supporters bus he was on crashed en route to Rangers’ game against Partick Thistle.
Thousands have taken to social media to pay their respects, including Rangers’ assistant manager and former player David Weir, and Celtic FC.
Rangers Manager Mark Warburton has also reached out to Ryan’s family, offering to do anything he can to help.
A widely followed Rangers supporters’ group on Facebook changed their profile picture to the badge of the Nith Valley Loyal, the group of supporters that Ryan was a member of, along with the message “RIP to the fan who lost his life today and prayers to the others who are still in hospital, wishing you all a speedy recovery”.
