Rangers have paid tribute to their ‘legendary and beloved kit man’ Jimmy Bell, who died aged 57. He was a constant presence at Ibrox for the past 30 years, gaining cult status among the club’s supporters.

Considered a vital member of the Rangers setup, he was there during successful periods such as the straight nine eras and the UEFA Cup final and remained through administration, low-level football, and their return to the Scottish Premiership.
In a statement, Rangers chairman Douglas Park said: “As a club, we are absolutely devastated to learn of the loss of our colleague and, more importantly, our dear friend, Jimmy Bell. “Jimmy has dedicated his life to Rangers Football Club. Having worked under Graeme Souness at Giovanni, he has had some of the happiest days in our 150-year history. low and has shown selfless dedication, no matter what challenge awaits.
“Jimmy’s work ethic was second to none. He put in countless hours preparing for every practice and game. No job was too big or too small for him, and he thrived while working for his childhood club. “I spoke with Jimmy regularly, knowing him from when he was a mechanic and bus driver at Park’s. He was excited for Thursday night’s game at Ibrox, particularly after already experiencing a European semi-final under Walter Smith.
“Rangers and Scottish football as a whole lost a legend and a friend today. He was a devoted family man, father, grandfather, and husband. Jimmy will be greatly missed and I send our deepest condolences to the entire Bell family at this difficult time on behalf of Rangers Football Club.”
