ACTOR Stephen Purdon has shown off his Rally Roon the Rangers costume ahead of the play's opening in Glasgow tonight.

The River City star, who has played Bob O’Hara on the soap since 2002, shared an image of the retro style football top on Twitter ahead of the opening Pavilion show this evening. 

He teased: "Costume for opening night."

One fan replied: "That's a cracker."

Another enthused: "I'll wear my one ma man. Buzzing for it."

The play was created by the team behind Singin I’m No A Billy He’s A Tim and centers around the story of eight die-hard Rangers fans.

With Scots Squad funnyman Grado also on board, the story follows the group as they try to save The Wee Rangers Supporters Club from demolition by the council.

Stephen, 36, previously told The Evening Times it has been a long time since there has been a Rangers show on stage. 

Rally Roon The Rangers runs at the Pavilion Theatre from July 24 to August 3.
