“We love rangers”, said the girl band during a surprising visit to Ibrox.”
K-pop group STAYC made up for their fashion faux pas when they visited the actual Glasgow Rangers last week.
It was after the South Korean band played a gig at US baseball team, the Texas Rangers last month and wore a customized Glasgow Rangers retro strip from the 1996-97 season.
The girl group made up of Sumin, Sieun, Isa, Seeun, Yoon and J, visited Dallas as part of their world ‘teen fresh’ tour.
They wanted to show support to the Texas Rangers but mistook them for the football team by wearing a vintage Glasgow Rangers strip instead.
Rangers’ fans were quick to spot the group sporting their club’s jerseys and took to social media to correct their mistake and at the same time show their support.
Fans from all over Scotland and the world expressed their excitement about the Scottish football and K-pop crossover.
They were then shocked to find that the singers would be travelling to Ibrox Stadium, to meet and greet fans.
Posting to their 2 million Instagram followers, the singers said they would be appearing outside Edmiston House at 6pm on the 6th November.
One fan that attended the meet and greet took to X to tell others their experience. The user stated “stayc managed to draw a big crowd in Glasgow just to greet them when their appearance was only announced this morning.”
The girls waved to the mass of fans from the balcony of the newly refurbished Edmiston House, with one member of the band telling fans: “This is our first time in Scotland, and we are so happy right now” the member added “Are you guys fans of Rangers too?”.
The girl group that formed in 2020 has amassed a huge amount of fame and many Rangers fans have joined “SWITH’S” in supporting the group. Heaps of “SWITH’s” are also now supporting Rangers. One fan on Instagram said, “From today I declare myself a ranger’s fan”.
Another fan that attended the surprise appearance stated, “I was crying so hard oh my gosh.”
After the successful Glasgow meet and greet, devoted fans hope to see the girls back in Scotland soon.
