Rangers football fans have launched a last miniute campaign to get The Dave Clark Five’s 1963 single Glad All Over - their new anthem - to the top of the charts.

The song was played out during a match on December 16, when Rangers beat Hamilton 2-1.

Fans chanted the track with the chorus changed from: “I’m feeling... glad all over” to “We’ve got... Joey Garner”.
