Rangers fans were left fuming after the programme to the Links Park side’s Saturday’s Division Three clash read: “Playing their first season in Division Three, The Rangers are a newco of the now defunct Glasgow Rangers.

“Currently top of the table, they will be hoping to go on to seal the title and clinch their first silverware.”

In a statement, Rangers’ chief executive, Charles Green, said: “I have spoken to the chairman of Montrose today and he and his fellow directors have offered Rangers an unreserved apology.”

The teams met at Links Park on Saturday in a Third Division clash that ended in a 4-2 win for Rangers.
