Dream Day to Remember
Wed 4th November 2015
A group of Rangers fans in need of a boost owing to a life-limiting illness, long-term disability or recent difficult experience had a day to remember at Ibrox and Murray Park as part of the Rangers Charity Foundation’s ‘Dream Day.’
Dream Days are run twice every season at the invitation of the Manager and guests enjoy a look behind the scenes at both Ibrox and the training ground as well as meeting their heroes and collecting autographs.
The day started with a visit to the training ground where the entire first team squad as well as Mark Warburton and David Weir were on hand to chat, pose for photographs and sign autographs.
The group then watched the players go through their paces on the training pitches before taking a tour of the facility. The Dream Day continued with lunch in the Members Club at Ibrox and a tour around the famous Stadium and Trophy Room.
15 year old Lewis Fraser said, “I had a brilliant day! My favourite part was getting to meet the players and to see the effort they put in at training”
Stewart Cameron, who brought along his son Jay, added, “Absolutely incredible day had by all. The Rangers staff were tremendous and treated us very well along with the playing staff. Jay has been the happiest wee boy ever!”
Lindsay Cuzen, who attended with her fiancé Donald Conkie added, “It was great to see Donald’s face when the players entered the room. After everything he has been through it was great to see him happy and having a laugh with the players”
12 year old Austin Benson commented, “My favourite part was talking to Mark Warburton as he promised me his boots, also meeting Dean Shiels my hero!”
Kenny Miller has experienced a number of these days over his years with the club and was delighted to spend time with the guests.
The striker said: “Days like this paint a picture about how important this club is to the fans and how much we can do to put a smile on their faces when they’re not having a great time of it
“The lads always look forward to this day, it’s an opportunity to mingle with the fans and find out their thoughts on how the season is going.
“Everybody knows how big Rangers is but sometimes new players may not realise the reach the club has until you’re involved in it and see days like this and listen to the fans’ stories.”
