Rangers offer goodwill gift to England Star- Saka

Arsenal star Bukayo Saka received a barrage of racist comments on social media after missing a critical chance in England’s 3-2 shootout loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final. This has erupted a host of goodwill messages from all angles to him.

Before a pre-season friendly with Arsenal on Saturday, Rangers paid a heartfelt homage to Arsenal and England player Bukayo Saka by gifting his club teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang an autographed No 7 shirt.

Rangers, on the other hand, were eager to demonstrate their support for the 19-year-old when they played Arsenal in a friendly to commemorate the Glasgow giants’ 150th anniversary.

Before the game, Rangers captain James Tavernier presented Aubameyang with signed shirt from Steven Gerrard’s squad, and the Scottish champions tweeted the image with the hashtag #EveryoneAnyone.
Arsenal’s response was simple: ‘Respect.’
Saka, as well as Manchester United teammates Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, have all received horrible hatred after missing the penalty spot in the Wembley shootout, but have received support from wide range of football and non-football celebrities, including Usain Bolt.
Saka, who had never taken penalty in his professional career, was devastated by the miss, but shared his feelings for the first time in an emotive Instagram post on Thursday.

‘I knew exactly what kind of hate I was going to get,’ he wrote on Instagram, ‘that is a terrible truth.’

‘We will win if the majority of people come together to call out the people sending these messages, by taking action and reporting these comments to the authorities, and by driving out the hate by being good to one another.’ He said
