Jack Butland Has Revealed When He Realised Rangers Were a Huge Club

Jack Butland shared the moment he realized the enormity of the club after joining on a free transfer last summer. The 30-year-old reflected on his experience during Allan McGregor’s testimonial, highlighting the sold-out game and a “massive” tifo dedicated to the former Gers keeper inside Ibrox.

Responding to English’s query about when he recognized the club’s magnitude, Butland revealed, “Allan McGregor’s testimonial against Newcastle was sold out, and there was a massive tifo of him. So that was something for me to look at and go, ‘this is huge.’ The love that they’ve got for him, coming into a club like that, that could be me. You could have a bit of that.”

The Englishman expressed his awe at the spectacle, noting that the passionate display of support from the Light Blues fans for McGregor, who decided to retire at the age of 41 after 19 years with the club over two spells in Glasgow, made him contemplate the potential impact he could have at Rangers.

“Was there one moment since you got to the club when you realized ‘oh boy, this is kind of big?’” questioned English.

Butland’s response encapsulated the profound realization of the club’s significance, emphasizing the powerful connection between the fans and the players.

“Allan McGregor’s testimonial against Newcastle was sold out and there was a massive tifo of him,” said Butland. “So that was something for me to look at and go ‘this is huge’. The love that they’ve got for him, coming into a club like that, that could be me. You could have a bit of that.”
