'Amazing... Unbelievable' - Exclusive: Hutton blown away by Rangers statement
Alan Hutton has been left blown away after Rangers confirmed they had sold out of season tickets for the 2020/21 season.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Gers defender and boyhood fan of the club admits it is “unbelievable” the supporters had splashed their money out despite not knowing when they will be able to return to Ibrox.
Rangers confirmed last week that they had sold the maximum of 46,500 season tickets for the third consecutive campaign.

The update comes despite the fact fans are yet to return to stadiums after games were issued to be played behind closed doors amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Hutton admits he can hardly believe the demand for tickets considering the uncertainty surrounding supporters returning to games and insists it proves Rangers are building something special at Ibrox.
“It’s absolutely amazing and it’s not just because they’ve been doing well this season, these fans have turned up through thick and thin,” Hutton told Football Insider.

“In the lower leagues, they were selling out Ibrox to come and watch them in the bottom tier of Scottish football, so they’ve been the whole time, it’s just great to see.
“They’re really supporting Gerrard and the move forward, they are building something, it looks to me like they’re building something special, something to rival Celtic. Yes, it’s taken a few years but they’ve had this plan in place but you can actually see it working now.
“The fans are always going to back their team but it just shows you how special they are, they don’t even know when they’re going to get back in and we’re talking about Aberdeen maybe having 300 in at the weekend.
“To go out and pay out that money in uncertain times and no necessarily go to games, it’s just unbelievable.”
