Rangers supporters throughout the globe are rallying around to save one of world football's institutions, and this appears to be another example.

Magnificent

"The Rangers supporters have been magnificent in the past few months and our fans in Northern Ireland will be rewarded with a game at Windsor Park that will also help the club in difficult times," Gers boss Ally McCoist said.

"We always enjoy great support from Belfast and we look forward to playing there once again next month.

"On behalf of everyone at Rangers, I would also like to thank Linfield for supporting us by agreeing to take part in this match."

The match is sure to be an emotional one for Rangers and Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis, who will surely play in the game if he is fit.

Appreciate

"It is an honour and privilege to be captain of Rangers and Northern Ireland so it will be nice to return to Windsor Park on club business," said Davis.

"We have received unbelievable support from fans worldwide in recent months which we all appreciate and the players are all looking forward to returning to Belfast on May 7."

Linfield chairman Jim Kerr said: "Linfield Football Club has had a long cordial relationship with Rangers Football Club and is delighted to assist during this difficult time."
