Championship rival says his Rangers-supporting father cheered him even at Celtic

Queen of the South youngster Lewis Kidd grew up as a Rangers fan and was on the books of Celtic for a short spell.

Queen of the South youngster Lewis Kidd has told The Scottish Sun that his family will support him and not Rangers this weekend.

James Fowler’s side will take on the Gers at home in the Scottish Championship on Sunday.

Kidd, who grew up as a Rangers fan, was on the books of Old Firm rivals Celtic for a short period of time.

The 20-year-old, who can play as a full-back or as a midfielder, joined Queens on a permanent contract in the summer of 2014.

The youngster will come up against Rangers on Sunday, and he is focused on picking up all three points.

Kidd has also stated that his family will support him on Sunday despite their allegiance to Rangers.

“My family definitely want a Queens win this weekend,” the youngster told The Scottish Sun. “They are all Rangers supporters, and I’ve been a Gers fan all my life too.”

“When it comes to your son playing there’s only one team you are going to support this weekend,” added Kidd. “Dad will be there. I hope he will be in the Queens end. He’d better be!

“At the play-offs he was in the Queens end for both games. He’s always supported me, even when I went to Celtic as a kid.”

Rangers have made a strong start to the 2015-16 Scottish Championship campaign and are in great form at the moment.

Mark Warburton’s side find themselves at the top of the league table at the moment with nine points from three matches.

The Glasgow outfit have also progressed to the third round of the Scottish League Cup, where they will take on St. Johnstone.

Meanwhile, Queens are currently second in the table, having also won all three of their league games so far.
