Rangers fans do their bit for charity

Fund raising Glasgow Rangers fans last night handed over nearly £6,000 to a worthy cause in the Isle of Man.

The local supporters' club made the donation to Ronald McDonald House Isle of Man Families and Friends.

The charity was set up by Andy Kelly who stayed at the Ronald McDonald facility at Alder Hey with his wife as his daughter, Freya, battled a congenital heart condition.

Freya passed away, but Andy wanted to give something back to the place which became a "home from home" at a distressing time.

There are a dozen such houses around the United Kingdom which provide accommodation for families of sick children.

Club member Ian Gillies says Rangers supporters in the Island have raised more than £32,000 since 1998, and every year they have more to give (play attached audio file):
