In Remembrance of 66

Today our thoughts are with the families, survivors, friends and supporters who remember the loss of 66 football supporters forty years ago this day.

On January 2nd 1971 at an old-firm derby at Ibrox in Glasgow those 66 supporters would lose their lives in a dreadful disaster. 66 fans who would never go home again. 66 innocent lives lost at a football match.

Glasgow Rangers we share your pain. And Glasgow Celtic we’ll never forget how you helped us with ours. We know your tributes today will be fitting.

You’ll Never Walk Alone.
