do they support ireland as well?
What do they think of every Irish international that plays at Ibrox being roundly booed for example?
Maybe there father or grandfather was a Rangers fan,and it was passed down
Its not that inconceivable is it?
 
its a tad strange for any irish person to start supporting Rangers in the first place. A club that has an open hatred for everything irish, but then again there are a lot of strange people about

My friend is a massive Rangers supporter living in Donegal. It was passed down from his father, like the rest of his family. They were originally from Glasgow but moved here. His youngest brother was born in Ireland and supports both Rangers & Ireland as much as the other.

I know what you mean though about people doing it for the craic, one person back home wore a Rangers jersey just to rise celtic fans like myself.
 
thats conceivable then to be fair, if the family are originally from Glasgow and it was passed down

The chap I use to hang around with was a sap! - but we were only 16 and he use to drink McEvans larger as well.

I have no idea what possessed him to support Rangers but he did.
I've a feeling he may have done it as a wind up but I am also sure he got bullied a lot.
He was the bullying type - fat, Rangers fan, sh*te at sport etc..

Maybury could well have been a Rangers fan. I lad I used to work with was in his class in school and he went to a protestant school on the northside.
 
A chap on a forum I used to post on was a big UCD, Ireland and Rangers fan. I think Dublinger was his username. He said his old man was a Rangers fan and it was passed down to him. One of my mates was also a Rangers fan, his Grandfather was Scottish and all his family were Rangers fans. He stopped following them after his first visit to Glasgow.

Brian Kerr is a Rangers fan as was his father and grandfather.  3 recent Irish Internationals Ritchie Sadlier, Alan Maybury and a 3rd who hasn't gone public are/were Rangers fans. 

I know quite a few Rangers fans in the Republic and they are as serious as your average Man United or Liverpool fan eg 1 home game every couple of seasons and watch the games on tv. 

I know of one of our regular aways fans under Jack who also followed Rangers everywhere at the time incl numerous european aways.  Haven't seen him at any of our games recently.

I know of a family of season ticket holders in the Aviva who went to Ibrox at least once this season and do follow Rangers - father went a bit more often before he had the kids.  

A former colleague goes to most home games and went to Japan(his only aways afaik although he could well be in Poland) and went to quite a few Rangers games.

Just because Rangers fans don't feel the need to show their British club allegiances at RoI games doesn't mean they don't exist. 

Spare me the anti Irish rubbish.  Rangers fans are anti Celtic (I wonder why Big smile) not anti Irish.

Its a funny combination being a rangers fan and an ireland fan.id love to meet one at the aways.honestly though it would be very difficult to stomach their chants and banners after awhile.i remember being seething   at wembley when united played portsmouth in the charity shield a few years ago and when o shea misjudged a bounce,this united fan in front of me stood up and shouted O Shea ya Irish prick but that would be a rarity in uniteds support compared to what rangers would spout on a much larger scale.i wouldnt stick it if a club i supported as a kid had a noturious anti irish aspect, i wouldnt be long dropping them tbh
