'Is this a wind up?' 'Awful decision' - Rangers fans go berserk as club confirm deal
Rangers fans have gone berserk on Twitter after the club announced that they have agreed a partnership deal with Scottish e-cigarette company Vaporized.
The Light Blues announced on their official website that the retailer will become their ‘official vaping partner’ and there are plans for a Vaporized shop to be put together at Ibrox, as well as Gers branded e-liquids.
The Glasgow club say that the deal has the aim of helping people switch away from tobacco products on to e-cigarettes, however that has caused an outburst among supporters on line.
Many believe that smoking in any capacity should not be encouraged by the club and are disappointed to see Managing Director Stewart Robertson announce the partnership with Vaporized.
One angry Gers fan claimed that it was an “awful decision” for the club to make.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Mind that time ppl were told smoking was good for you aye. There has absolutely not been enough studies into vaping. I certainly won’t be breathing this in to be told in 20years time it’s not good for you. This is the one subject that’s a no for me.

What the hell? Who in their right mind thought this was a good idea?
Let's partner with something that we are not sure that may cause cancer.
Seriously, get this to far away as possible from our club

The reaction on here is a pretty good indication that there isn’t any support for this. I’m guessing Declan John didn’t volunteer for this endorsement.

Rangers will now surely be looking to put fans’ minds at rest on Saturday when they face Motherwell at Fir Park.
The Light Blues will be out for revenge after being knocked out of the Scottish League Cup by Stephen Robinson’s side and will always know that a loss could mean that Aberdeen have the chance to jump into second in the Scottish Premiership standings.
