My Ticket - a gift from my son Alan !




The people of Manchester were wonderful and made us very welcome I met nothing but friendliness throughout the 3 days we visited and the police were marvellous.
It was sad to wake up on Thursday morning to read that the neds who are attracted to football clubs ruined the whole occasion by rioting with the police in the town centre.

Piccadilly Square Wednesday afternoon

Rangers Chief Executive, Martin Bain commented "The majority of our fans have been a credit to themselves and the Club as they followed the team around Europe.
"The UEFA Cup Final was a terrific occasion for everyone associated with Rangers and the fact that an estimated 200,000 people travelled to Manchester and headed to Ibrox for the beamback party highlights the level of commitment and passion our fans have for this Club.
"The vast majority of supporters were a credit to Rangers and deserve praise for their conduct."However, I condemn the mindless minority who engaged in senseless violence before and after the match.

"We saw some great scenes in Manchester and the city absorbed the numbers that were there, despite the fact they greatly exceeded those expected.

"Unfortunately the catalyst for the disorder last night was the breaking down of the giant screen and the unacceptable behaviour of approximately 200 people which followed has tarnished the Club's reputation.

"While condemning the behaviour of these people, let's also express our gratitude to the unprecedented numbers of people who travelled to Manchester and were a credit to Rangers Football Club."
