FORGET the Old Firm – it will be a case of the ‘bold firm’ when Rangers and Celtic fans swap jerseys as part of a fundraiser with a twist in Kirkintilloch.

Local group the Kirky Legends are staging a special event for the British Heart Foundation on Saturday, June 1.

The centrepiece will be a game of football involving 20 Celtic and 20 Rangers fans playing a match – but in the other team’s colours! There will also be a ladies’ match and a game for youngsters. It will all take place at the Merkland pitches, with the first match kicking off at 1.30pm.

There will be face painting, stalls and more. The day will culminate with a disco, live music and a raffle in Kirkintilloch Miners’ Club. If anyone would like to donate a prize or help out contact the group via Facebook.
