Walter Smith, a former manager of Scotland, Everton, and Rangers, will be laid to rest on Wednesday. A public memorial service will be held on November 19.

Smith, who was 73 years old, died last week.

Rangers announced the services and said that his death "has touched all members of the Rangers family".

The Glasgow club points out that the funeral is a private, family event. All supporters, the public, and the media are asked to respect this privacy.

They state that the cortege will pass Ibrox at 3 :15pm. The cortege will enter from Helen Street and drive in the direction Paisley Road West, before rejoining the motorway.

The 19 November memorial at Glasgow Cathedral will be an invitation-only affair, with the Scottish champions streaming the live recording via RangersTV.
