Rangers have pulled off a shock surprise for Rangers fans after confirming today’s friendly with Bayer Leverkusen will be broadcast completely free of charge, no cost attached at all.

Normally the club TV channel, Rangers TV would have exclusive rights on Ibrox matches, and charge £9.99 for the privilege of watching it, but in a possible nod to rising energy prices and the appalling cost of living, the board have made the decision to give a little something back to supporters by making this one free.

The match, kick off at 1PM UK time today, will air free of charge on Rangers’ Twitter account, Facebook account and YouTube accounts for the full 90 minutes, in one of the better moves by the board in recent times.

Rangers’ board has been under fire a lot in recent times, making bad call after bad call, but their decision to sacrifice potentially many thousands of pounds of RTV subscription cash in making this one completely free to all fans who can’t make it is a nod in the right direction.

It’s unlikely to make fans love the board all of a sudden, but it’s the right kind of gesture towards long-suffering fans who keep putting their hands in their pockets when ask, and always come up with the funds.

So this will be appreciated by the majority, who would rather keep that £10 and use it for something maybe a bit more ‘important’ as the winter kicks in and the chill bites, not to mention the heating ramps up.

The bonus on top of all this would be if Rangers actually went out there and won against the German giants, even if their domestic season isn’t the best.
