Lynsey Sharp

The Rangers Supporters Trust is delighted to announce that Olympian and Commonwealth Games Silver Medallist, Lynsey Sharp has joined the RST along with her mother Carol. As well as her huge success in the 800m, Lynsey is a well-known Rangers fan and has joined nearly 3000 other fans in helping the RST move over the 1% mark.

Lynsey said “Rangers is in my blood and it’s heart-breaking to see the most successful club in the world like this. The fans have so much passion and we need to use that passion to bring the club back to its best.”

Gordon Dinnie the RST Chairman said “In the past few weeks we have had an incredible response from the fans. There is a real feeling that after several hard years things are gradually moving in the right direction with the fans becoming more and more involved. The hope is that that we can support the Three Bears in making significant changes to the way the club has been run.”

“Lynsey is a fantastic role model. She is well known to the Rangers support and extremely popular in Scotland generally. We are delighted she has committed to the RST.”

“In the past couple of weeks we’ve seen over 400 people sign up for life memberships, annual memberships and join our Buy Rangers scheme which sees them contribute monthly or in a lump sum towards share purchases. We will soon be announcing further innovative plans which we hope will bring an even wider section of the fan base together to push for change.”

“What we really need is for every Rangers fan who wants to make a difference to follow Lynsey’s lead and “get out strong” and “commit” to greater fan involvement in the club by visiting and signing up. Every fan can help to make sure the problems that have plagued our club are never allowed to happen again.”
