A popular Rangers pub in Glasgow was vandalised on the night of the Queen’s funeral.

Operators of the Louden Tavern found the graffiti this morning (20 September) when checking in on the pub, which is just around the corner from Ibrox stadium.

Two separate pieces of graffiti were sprayed on the front of the pub overnight.

The graffiti reads ‘F**k the King’ and ‘£8 million funeral while our country starves’.

The Louden Tavern posted on Twitter:”So they continue… anyone who knows us knows we try to give back to our local community and wider Glasgow area and Rangers fan base so thank you for the hate crime.

“Let’s hope they’ve been daft enough not to wear masks.

“Thank you to everyone who continues to support us.”

The Ibrox pub is treating the issue as a hate crime, and has appealed to Glasgow City Council to clean the graffiti off the front of the building.

The popular Rangers pub followed up on the tweet: “The irony that the graffiti will be cleaned by the council and therefore more money diverted from other causes due to it being a hate crime.”
