A devastated Rangers fan poses the Queen’s portrait in a homemade frame outside Ibrox in a poignant tribute

A DEVASTATED Rangers fan built a picture frame of Her Majesty and posed it against the Ibrox disaster memorial in a touching moment today.

Carpenter Brian Wilson, 60, was forced to build the room overnight after the tragic death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday afternoon.

He made the frame on behalf of his local Stumps bar in Partick, Glasgow – just across the River Clyde from Ibrox Stadium.

For decades a picture of the Queen has adorned the Rangers dressing room and Brian couldn’t think of a better place to pay tribute to his beloved monarch.

He solemnly laid the frame next to the statue of John Greig which commemorates 66 fans who died in the Ibrox disaster in 1971.

Wearing a black armband made of duct tape, he said: ‘This is about showing respect for the queen, our queen.

“She was there for all times – the good times and the bad times.

“He is the only monarch I have known in my entire life.

“She was our sovereign and I had to do something to honor her.

“I’m a carpenter by trade, so I was able to build the frame and put a picture in it.

“There was only one place I could leave it and I hope other fans like it.”

On Thursday, Rangers tweeted a photo from the dressing room with Her Majesty’s picture above the clothespins – and lowered the Union flag above the half-mast stadium.

And today they held minutes of silence for the teams before practice.

West Ham United were widely praised for their tribute to the Queen in their Europa League game on Thursday.
