LEE McCULLOCH swapped Ibrox for Stornoway this week as the current Rangers skipper visited the world’s biggest Rangers Supporters Club in the town while also squeezing in a kids’ coaching session at Laxdale Primary School, writes Eric Mackinnon.

And within hours of touching down on island soil McCulloch, known as Jig, promised he’d be back after being wowed by the Hebridean hospitality, the local supporters club and the town itself.

Pictured above is Lee with Amy Macleod from Great Bernera, who he presented with a signed Rangers top.

Amy’s dad Iain Mervyn was a long time Rangers supporter and following his death in March this year Amy decided to support the Rangers Charity Foundation and raise money in his memory.

The first event she is organising is a quiz and ceilidh night in the Caladh Inn Stornoway on Friday, June 21st.

All proceeds from the night will go to the ABP Soldiers Charity who provide financial assistance to all soldiers and their families when in need. This is a charity which was close to her dad’s heart.

Anyone wishing to donate towards the cause can contact “Amy Bernera” on facebook.
