Jill and Craig. FF went mental for them for a while.

The tattoo guy with those facial tattoos was totally mental. I always wondered.what guys like that do for a living but tattoo artist would be the sensible answer. :D

When you come into @MISTERSINGHS for a top of the notch meal and you see the @RangersFC team sitting..... then you realise Calsberg really do do Saturday’s!! pic.twitter.com/UZ8vI6dn76

Still piss myself laughing when someone pretended to be the Managing Director of Moët and offered Jill Sharp a discount over the phone then everyone was stalking them on the Blackpool trip for the charity match. People getting photos with them in the stadium and on the train down hahaha

When I was a teenager going into the east enclosure there was a bloke that always stood near us. His nickname was Staz, and he was a hardy big bastard from around Glasgow. Big desperate dan chin , denim jacket , doc Martin boots, he’d chain smoke all game and shout on others to give him a fag back if he’d already given them one earlier and the fags would get passed along the line immediately from 20 fans away. His anger outbursts were legendary especially when we played Celtic. You would see him in many a fight after a match and never would he run from anyone. As a teenager he was staunch personified. Staz if your still around and I hope you are, WATP.

When people mention Characters from Ibrox (supporters), immediately you likely think of the Copland Nutter, Santa from the Enclosure etc.

Years ago in the West Enclosure there was a big guy (I'm sure he was called Kenny) - tattoos on his face, shaved head, the biggest RFC gold chain round his neck, and he was always chanting the odds at opposition support (who were, at the time, located in BF1).
He was hilarious and kept everyone going with his mad chants.
For some reason Rock Steady weren't his biggest fan right enough :))

There was also a guy we nicknamed (very originally) "Orange Hat Guy" and he ALWAYS got lobbed out for shouting at the away support. We used to run a sweep on what minute of the game he'd get chucked out.
In the quietest, poorest 0-0 draw v the likes of Dunfermline he'd be up belting it out, challenging them to a square go etc :))

Who are the characters you remember from your years at Ibrox?
Are they still there?
Big Kenny is still there. He has been a wee bit unfortunate health wise. Had a heart attack & a stroke. But he still gets to the matches. I sit on the same row as him. Great guy, a real gentle giant.

Mind the other wee guy what wore the hat with all the badges on them? Haven’t seen him for a wee while right enough. Always see Pogo can’t really miss him haha
Sounds like a guy from the Dunfermline loyal, don’t know him but we always called him Badges. Used to see him every home game in Airth where our buses stopped pre match.

I'm also a season ticket holder in the west enclosure and can remember the guy with the tattoos. Anyone know where the guy who only wore vests or not even a top when it was freezing went?? He used to be in the enclosure as well.

Was not Satan666?
Yeah still alive & well.Not been to a game in a while but still 100% blue.
Couldn’t afford the season ticket & all the travel costs so regrettably wasn’t able to keep going.Got back into music & when funds finally got better started going to live Ska/Punk bands again.Have been back to a few games though & intend to get to as many as possible in the future.Cheers & all the very best to you all

There's an older guy with long curly hair who often wears a cowboy hat, he sits in the Govan East corner he seems like a bit of a character.

Back in the mid 2000s me and the old man sat in GF5 Row I about 160ish. We had a set of twins sat in front of us that were absolutely bat shit mental. Harmless enough, but bloody hell! As soon as we conceded a goal it was screaming and screeching and border line crying with shrieks of "Why are you doing this to us Rangers". Can't help but find the way that they took everything to heart slightly endearing, if not slightly reminicent of Annie Whilkes!

There was also another one, a guy who sat about 3 or 4 rows behind us who would finish every sentence with "YA DICK". this would include things such as "Square it, YA DICK", "Man on, YA DICK" and my personal favourite "YOU'RE A FANNY... YA DICK"

Went to a few games with the Union Jack bus from Haymarket and there was a guy who'd take his Alsatian with him - I sure it was called Blue and when he shouted "Catholic" the dog went mental.

I was only a wee boy at the time so the memory might be playing tricks?

when john greig was manager, there was an old guy in the west enclosure next to the tunnel.
he was about 6 foot tall and immaculate with club tie, suit, not a hair out of place, glasses on etc.
the teams would emerge and he would applaud and shout polite encouragement to the players.
when john greig came out it was if someone flicked a switch.
"greig, resign ya imposter, resign, etc"
the hair was all over the place, the tie was halfway round his back, glasses askew on his by now red face.
every single home game.
Jock Wallace? :))

I think thats the guy who has a condition where his body over heats. I cant remember the name of said condition. He always wears T shirts and vests.

Hugh Keevins called him an attention seeker then had to apologise to the guy.
The person goes by the nickname of “The Naked bear” if I remember correctly his name is Eli or something similar and comes from mossblown/ Ayr- he was even escorted out of Ibrox in a blizzard for his own safety by stewards for only wearing a vest - stewards were unaware of his medical condition where his body overheats and he cannot feel the cold - he explained and still got chucked out
