Michael Ball issues pre-match rallying cry which will delight Rangers fans

The former Gers defender tweeted his support as the club look to secure the Scottish Championship title on Tuesday evening.

Rangers defender Michael Ball has issued a rallying cry to the club's supporters ahead of Tuesday night's clash with Dumbarton as they look to secure the Scottish Championship title and promotion.

The Gers take on the Sons at Ibrox knowing that victory will see them seal a return to the top flight after a four-year absence since their liquidation.

The stadium is set to be packed to the rafters with supporters as the club gears up for its biggest occasion since they last won the Scottish Premiership title five years ago.

Ball, who won one SPL title during his four years playing for the Gers between 2001 and 2005, clearly still holds the club dear, judging by the tweet he sent to supporters before kick-off.

Ball wrote: "75 mins and counting 'til kick-off! Good luck lads @RangersFC. Enjoy my fellow Teddy Bears! #PartyTime #RFC #Champions #ComeBkToGetYou"

Though Rangers are almost certain to secure the title at some point whether or not they win on Tuesday, Mark Warburton and his players will be desperate for the big moment to happen in front of a sell-out crowd at their home ground.

If the Gers can secure the win, they will be able to switch their focus entirely to the cup double-header against Peterhead and Old Firm rivals Celtic over the next two weeks.
