Rangers have sent out a plea to fans to behave themselves ahead of the Europa clash against Porto on Thursday. 

In a statement on their official website, Rangers asked the fans to let “others fall foul of the authorities” and pointed to the England clash against Bulgaria during the international break.

“Rangers takes this opportunity to remind supporters, especially those travelling to Portugal for the Europa League match against Porto, that they have a duty to represent the Club in the best possible way,” the statement read.

“There must be no singing of songs, or behaviour which UEFA could deem unacceptable and the Club urges all our fans in Portugal to do everything possible to portray themselves and Rangers in the best possible light.

“Remember that UEFA has already imposed a sanction on Rangers so we must be vigilant and give them no cause to take further and more serious action against us.”

UEFA has charged Rangers twice over sectarian songs in Europa League clashes.

They had to play to reduced crowds against Legia Warsaw and Feyenoord, and were refused allocation for the Young Boys clash.

The game on Thursday will be a tough one and the team needs loud and proud support from travelling fans. However, it’s important that the club has fans in future games too.

Porto is a fabulous city and we hope that everyone that travels over, represents the club in the very best way possible.
