European football’s governing body has flatly banned British teams from replacing their tournament anthem with the UK national anthem, but that hasn’t moved anyone at Rangers.

The Glasgow giant released “God Save the Queen” (God Save the Queen), in tribute to the deceased Elizabeth II, and the entire stadium, along with the British players, sang the anthem.

It all happened during the planned minute’s silence before the Champions League match against Napoli, which Rangers ended up losing 3-0.

But in addition to the emotional anthem in defiance of the ban, the evening will also be remembered for the choreography that the most fanatical fans of the “blues” put on – again in honor of Elizabeth II.

The division in Glasgow is well-known, and its strongest expression is football with the Catholic-backed Celtic and the Protestant-backed Rangers.

The Blues from Glasgow have made international headlines with their actions, which could lead to punishment due to UEFA’s express ban on playing the national anthem before a match between club teams.

The evening will hardly be remembered for the performance of the players in “blue” teams, who pleased their fans only with the singing of the national anthem.

There was little to be proud of in the game, and goals from Matteo Politano, Giacomo Raspadori and Tanii Ndombele meant that Rangers had 7 goals conceded in two Champions League group games.

7 are also the goals that Napoli scored, as after the historic 4:1 over Liverpool, now the Neapolitans hit another British team.

Otherwise, the evening in the Champions League offered surprising results such as Chelsea’s draw against Red Bull Salzburg or Juventus’ home defeat by Benfica.

Here are all the results from the evening:

Group “A”

Rangers – Napoli 0:3

Group “E”

Milan – Dinamo Zagreb 3:1

Chelsea – Red Bull Salzburg 1:1

Group “F”

Real Madrid – RB Leipzig 2:0

Shakhtar Donetsk – Celtic 1:1

Group “G”

Manchester City – Borussia Dortmund 2:1

Copenhagen – Sevilla 0:0

Group “H”

Juventus – Benfica 1:2

Maccabi Haifa – PSG 1:3
