Former Rangers players Mark Walters and Graham Roberts made a visit to Lewis and Harris Rangers Supporters Club in Stornoway on Saturday, July 5.

The Club is based at Inaclete Road and is officially recognised by Rangers FC as the biggest Supporters Club in the world.

Both England Internationals played for the Light Blues during the successful Graeme Souness era during the late 1980s.

Walters won three League titles and two League Cups at Rangers whilst Roberts was part of the 86/87 League winning team and picked up a League Cup winners medal during the 87/88 season.

They arrived in Stornoway on Saturday afternoon and attended a meal with the RSC’s committee in the evening before moving on to a packed Club House to meet the members.

Graham Roberts kicked off the night with a speech about his football career and time at Rangers, including some of his favourite Old Firm memories.

After a short break, the special guests took the stage together along with LHRSC Ambassador Ronnie McKinnon for an extensive and entertaining question and answer session.

Walters and Roberts then took some time with the Supporters Club’s members for photos and autographs before the raffle was drawn.

The Rangers Legends were overwhelmed by the Hebridean hospitality they received and said they would definitely return to the Island again.

They visited the Supporters Club briefly on Sunday afternoon to thank and say goodbye to the fans before their journey home.
