    RANGERS’ brand new team bus has been described as the best in Scotland after it arrived in the country from Holland.

    Suppliers Bruce Coaches have invested a significant sum in what they call a ‘Premiership-level’ vehicle to transport Ally McCoist and his players around the country in.

    Specially-built for use by the club by Vanhool, the 41-seat bus carries all sorts of equipment which will make journeys as comfortable as possible for the Third Division champions.

    It was inspired by a trip to look at the coach Liverpool use last season and was ordered last September.

    As well as luxury leather seating with extended legroom, the bus has satellite television, wifi, power sockets, a top-of-the-range sound system and a computer game console.

    There are also extensive cooking facilities including an oven, hotplates and fridges for first-team chef Paul Lafferty to prepare meals for the squad after matches.

    One of the tables is hydraulic and can be lowered to the same level as the chairs around it to create an area for injured players to lie down on and receive treatment.

    Manager McCoist, his assistant Kenny McDowall and coach Ian Durrant all have seats with personalised headrests on them as well.

    Complete with carpets in Rangers’ own tartan, the bus even has a separate bed compartment which allows members of the group to rest in privacy if required.

    The Light Blues will use the bus for first time when they travel north for their opening pre-season fixture at Highland League outfit Brora a week on Sunday.

    Fans are also able to hire the coach for corporate use including for weddings and funerals and can call the hotline on 0871 702 1972 for further information.

    Driver Greg Docherty said: “It’s a 14.2-metre bus which was delivered to us on Tuesday morning after coming into the country two weeks ago and going through safety checks first.

    “It’s a Premiership-level coach which is fully equipped with multimedia systems including Sky television, smart TVs and a PS3.

    “The kitchen facilities include a commercial-level oven, there’s a coffee-making machine and so much more.

    “It really is a top-range vehicle and there’s nothing else like it in Scotland. There never has been before and it’s superb.

    “Mr Bruce is a Rangers supporter and he wants the team to have the best so he has endeavoured to make it as good as he possibly could.

    “Anything that we could do to make the players as comfortable as possible for their journeys to away grounds we have done as well as we could.

    “The seats are bigger than they were in last season’s vehicle and there is more room for each person so they should all be very relaxed and comfortable.”

    This battle bus is like a new signing.

    Players will be more relaxed going to games and will be able to get the best of treatment on it.
