Rangers v Villarreal

OK, I know this blog is supposed to be about new developments in the media and entertainment space, but since Rangers have reached the last 16 of the Champions League for the first time I'll allow myself a little self-indulgence.

But hold on. There is a media/entertainment connection - of sorts.

When Rangers played Inter Milan in the group stages of the Champions League, thousands of supporters created a giant Union Jack by holding up coloured cards before the match, breaking the world record for the largest human national flag. 10,928 fans were in the Govan stand that night, holding up cards to create the flag. That beat the previous record of 10,481 set in the United Arab Emirates last February at Dubai's Creek Park.

An even more spectacular display is planned for tomorrow night. Watch this space (or better still, watch Sky Sports 2).

Come on the Gers!

Fantastic picture - you can almost hear the Champions' League theme !

Worth mentioning that this display was organised and paid for by the online community of Rangers' supporters.

Tonight's display is being paid for by the club, but organised by the supporters, and volunteers have spent the last four days putting it together.

C'mon the Teddy Bears !

In the end, it was a bit of a disappointment. Messages don't work - big, bold images do.

I hope they can come up with something better for the next round :-)
