A RANGERS fan died and 17 others were injured when their supporters bus crashed on its way to Ibrox. Police are investigating reports that the coach – hired by a fans’ group from Dumfriesshire’s Nith Valley – swerved as it crossed a roundabout near Kilmarnock before landing on its side on a grass verge.

The man who died, who was 39, was one of 36 passengers travelling to see Rangers play Partick Thistle in Saturday’s Glasgow derby. Police said the bus went off the A76 road at the Crossroads roundabout near Bowhouse Prison at around 1.15pm.
