Rangers manager Ally McCoist helped to launch the club’s support of the army’s national charity.

He was at Edinburgh Castle at the firing of the One o’clock Gun on Tuesday as the partnership was announced.

The Rangers Charity Foundation hopes to raise £25,000 for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

It works with soldiers and veterans from the British Army involved in every conflict since World War Two.

Mr McCoist said: "We are delighted. We are really proud of the team at the Rangers Charity Foundation and the incredible amount of work they do.

"The Soldiers' Charity is something we have supported for a while now and it seems a natural charity for us to support. It's a well-deserved and well-earning charity.

"I have mentioned this many times, but the men and women who serve their country are the real heroes in life and the charity deserves great credit for supporting thousands of individuals every year."

Major General Martin Rutledge, chief executive of the charity, added: "This partnership is a fantastic opportunity to raise both funds and awareness of our cause: the brave men and women who risk so much to serve the nation.

"When things go wrong the impact extends to their families and friends and The Soldiers' Charity is there for them with a helping hand. Long after our soldiers are back from Afghanistan, with public support, we will continue to be here for them."
