Images have emerged showing Benidorm's 'first' Rangers bar following a fire in the early hours of Wednesday morning. 

Photographs showing scorch marks on the outside of The Golden Last pub in the area of Spain were posted on social media earlier in the day. 

According to reports, staff claim that a number of flags which were being flown outside of the bar were set on fire. 

Evening Times:

The pub flies Union Flags and Ulster Banners outside its premises in the Spanish holiday resort. 

Early rumours on Rangers fan forums suggested that the pub had been petrol bombed but this has since been strongly denied by the owners.
