RANGERS fans in Seville have been urged to keep safe. 

Glasgow health bosses issued a statement after thousands of supporters made their way to Spain to enjoy the Europa League final. 

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde have reminded fans not to drink too much booze and stay out of the strong sunshine. 

Temperatures in Seville are predicted to be as high as 38 degrees over the next few days. 

A health board spokesperson said: "We hope that everyone attending the match can enjoy the football and festivities in a safe way, but it’s worth remembering that southern Spain is known for very high temperatures, even in May.

"The sun is also very strong at this time of year and the risk of sunburn, combined with heat exhaustion or heat stroke, should not be underestimated.

"Our advice to those enjoying the game in Seville would be to stay cool, avoid the strong sunshine and remain hydrated." 

A list of tips for coping with hot weather has also been provided:

  • look out for those who may struggle to keep themselves cool and hydrated – older people and those with underlying health conditions
  • stay cool indoors
  • if going outdoors, use cool spaces considerately and follow local guidance on coronavirus
  • drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol
  • never leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or animals
  • try to keep out of the sun between 11am to 3pm
  • walk in the shade, apply sunscreen regularly and wear a wide-brimmed hat, if you have to go out in the heat
  • avoid exercising in the hottest parts of the day
  • make sure you take water with you, if you are travelling
  • if you are going into open water to cool down, take care and follow local safety advice
