Rangers fans will pay tribute to Arnold Peralta after the former Gers midfielder was shot dead last night.

Honduran international Peralta was killed while on holiday with his family.

The players will also wear black armbands to honour the 26-year-old, who made 29 appearances for the club during an 18-month spell in Glasgow.

“Rangers Football Club is deeply shocked and saddened to hear the tragic news about former player Arnold Peralta,” read a club statement.

“Our thoughts go out to Arnold’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”
