A Scots WWE star who is a diehard Rangers fan has been inducted into The Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame for Scotland.

Drew McIntyre - otherwise known as The Scottish Warrior - was awarded the accolade by the Lord Provost of Glasgow City Council, Jacqueline McLaren, for his contribution to the sport at Ibrox recently.

The Ayr-born star was credited as being a 'pioneer of Scottish Wrestling', and has been called out as a superstar that has 'revived the sport nationally'.

The 39-year-old is set to be in the ring this weekend at the OVO Hydro for SmackDown on Friday, June 14, and Scotland's first-ever premium live event on Saturday, June 15 - Clash At The Castle.
