    Condolences on your loss, young Mr Weir.

    Your dad sounds like a guy that all of us would have taken to. The hole he leaves in your life won’t ever be filled, but the jagged edges round that hole won’t always feel so jagged.

    Thoughts and my prayers with you, your dad and your family at this saddest of moments. :(

    Any father who leaves behind a son or daughter who loves Rangers, the club, the history and the traditions, has left behind the best possible legacy.

    Sorry for your loss - difficult time for you and your family but good that you have these great memories of your times together watching The Rangers with your Dad.

    We as a football family have lost many great supporters/friends over the past few years.

    Can only hope and pray that our team reached that magic 55 before many more depart this earth.

    Sorry for your loss mate. Your Dad has clearly done a good job bringing you up as a Bear and you've written a touching tribute to him.

    RIP Harry.

    Just reading the OP again.

    Fans like this should have their stories told. I am always fascinated with stories from older Bears who were following Rangers before my time.

    Mr Weir is indeed a great loss to the Rangers family.

    Your dad has left a wonderful legacy.

    Nothing can ever take away those fantastic memories that Harry has left you with.

    Thank you all for your heartfelt support. Confirms what my dad always knew. Following the Rangers is different than following any other team. We are more than a club. Never forget that.

    Sorry for your loss OP. Sounds as if Harry passed the baton proudly on to you. Bet he had some stories to tell.

    PS Got a ticket like that in my drawer. Always meaning to get it in a frame.
