Rangers have responded after a print of Ibrox ahead of their huge Champions League defeat to Liverpool on sale in the club shop was slammed by fans.
A panoramic print of the stadium ahead of the group stage clash - which Rangers would go on to lose 7-1 - was available to buy on the club's official shop for £50.
After fans reacted angrily, the print was quietly removed from the site.
Rangers respond to angry fan reaction
One Rangers fan took to Twitter earlier this week to share an image of an item on sale from the Rangers store. The £50 print of Ibrox ahead of their Champions League clash with Liverpool did not go down well, given the game would ultimately result in a 7-1 Liverpool win.
‘Siri, remind me how out of touch the Rangers Board is’…

The defeat to Liverpool came as the centrepiece of what was statistically the worst ever Champions League group stage performance by any team, and was also Rangers' heaviest ever defeat at their home ground.
It is understandable that fans were peeved at such a moment being not only commemorated, but such a hefty price tag being attached to it. The Tweet shared on Monday led to an outpouring of anger on social media, and Rangers quietly removed the print from their store on Tuesday.
It has been a difficult season for Rangers. Off the back of reaching last season's Europa League final, their Champions League campaign was thoroughly underwhelming. The 7-1 defeat to Liverpool was one of six defeats from six games, and they finished the group with 0 points and a goal difference of -20, statistically the worst ever Champions League group performance.
They sit in second in the Scottish Premier League, but have already fallen nine points behind Celtic after just 15 games, putting manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst under huge pressure.
In such an environment, perhaps it's reasonable to expect fans mightn't be the happiest forking out £50 for a print of a heavy defeat.
