THE Rangers Charity Foundation's Wild West Ball raised a record �£110,000 on Saturday night at the Hilton Hotel in aid of its charity partners Fairbridge in Glasgow, RNIB Scotland and UNICEF.


The total raised breaks the �£100,000 mark for the first time in the Ball's 6 year history and was a major boost for the Foundation as it strives to raise �£200,000 for charity this season.


Walter Smith, Ally McCoist, Kenny McDowall and Ian Durrant attended along with many members of the first team squad in a great show of support for the Foundation's work.


The first team got involved in 'Game For a Gamble' with guests, as well as bidding for auction items, signing autographs and charity calendars and posing for pictures.


Former players such as Arthur Numan, Alex Rae, Gordon Smith, Derek Johnstone and Mark Hateley also added their backing to the evening.


There were some fantastic items on offer in the auction, including VIP trips to the Singapore Grand Prix and US Masters Golf Championship, as well as top Rangers prizes such as a game on the pitch at Ibrox and a day out at Murray Park as a guest of Walter Smith.


The Wild West theme was a big hit, with our Dolly Parton impersonator proving particularly popular, whilst the main band Northern Star ensured the dance floor was full all night.


Foundation Manager Connal Cochrane commented: "This is a spectacular total for the evening and a huge boost to the projects we are supporting. I would like to thank everyone who came along and gave their support."
