Thousands of Rangers fans turned up at Ibrox yesterday to pay a final tribute to the club’s greatest ever goalkeeper Andy Goram.

Supporters who lined the streets clapped and threw scarves and flowers as the player’s funeral cortege passed the stadium.

Among the floral tributes left at the main entrance to Ibrox was one in the shape of a pair of goalkeeper gloves and others that spelled out ‘Goalie’ and ‘Papa’.

The procession then made its way to Wellington Church in Glasgow where players past and present, including Goram’s former Scotland and manager Sir Alex Ferguson, had gathered for the funeral service.

The ex-Scotland footballer and cricketer, nicknamed The Goalie, died aged 58 earlier this month following a short battle with oesophageal cancer.

Ibrox heroes Ally McCoist and John Brown, along with ex-Scotland and Partick Thistle keeper Alan Rough, were among those who carried the coffin.

Other former Gers players at the church included Stuart McCall, Mark Hateley, Trevor Steven and Barry Ferguson.

Ex-Gers boss Alex McLeish was also in attendance along with current Ibrox gaffer Giovanni van Bronckhorst and a host of first team stars.

Goram signed for Rangers from Hibs in 1991 and lifted five titles and five domestic cups. He won 43 Scots caps.
