Rangers fans sung the national anthem ahead of their Champions League clash against Napoli at Ibrox.
The Scottish club played their first match since the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Rangers, a club known for being pro-royalist, made requests to UEFA to play the national anthem after a minute’s silence in honour of the late Queen.
However, those requests were turned down with UEFA saying the decision was made for the purposes of consistency with them already deciding not to play the competition’s anthem as a sign of respect.
But Rangers opted to play the national anthem anyway across the Ibrox PA system, with the fans duly joining in.
The decision could result in a fine from European football’s governing body.
A mosaic of Her Majesty was displayed shortly before both teams walked onto the pitch. Chants of Rule Britannia were also heard across the stands while both sets of players were stood in the tunnel.
A period’s silence in memory of Elizabeth II was then impeccably observed before the national anthem was played.

There was plenty of drama on the pitch as ten-man Gers were beaten 3-0, where penalties were the story of the game.
Returning goalkeeper Allan McGregor sensationally saved a retaken Piotr Zielinksi spot-kick on the hour after Gers defender James Sands was sent off conceding it, before he was beaten from 12 yards in the 67th minute by Matteo Politano.
Giacomo Raspador added a second with five minutes remaining and fellow substitute Tanguy Ndombele grabbed a third in added time to compound Gers’ misery
