Rangers fans are absolutely delighted that the club has announced a new official partnership with German side Hamburger SV.
The club sent out a tweet on Wednesday announcing the news saying, “A long-term friendship becomes official.
You can expect commercial opportunities and academy links to follow, and some fans want to see annual friendlies between the two sides too.
Many fans have already been over to the club for games and are looking forward to one of the best away days in the future.
🤝 A long-term friendship becomes official.
— Rangers Football Club (@RangersFC) February 10, 2021
Rangers’ Fan Liaison Officer, Greg Marshall said, “We are looking forward to providing great fan engagement opportunities and strengthening the already strong links that our supporters share.
“This partnership originates in fan culture and we are delighted to be able to move forward and work together knowing that this exciting new partnership will appeal greatly to fans of Rangers and HSV alike.”
One fan went as far as to say it is “better than 55” but we’ll put that down to a poor joke.
Nothing is more important that getting the title back to where it belongs.
However, this is great news and just more evidence that Rangers are doing the business off the pitch as well as on it.
Hopefully, when fans are back we can look forward to home and away friendlies against Hamburger.
In the meantime, here are the best reactions to the major news…
Friendship matters 🤝, Never forget either hamburg gave us a Friendly and gave us all the gate money in a time of need
