A Rangers fan has been trolled on social media after an offer to paint his garden in flag colors ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final went horribly wrong.
George Douglas, from Coalburn, South Lanarkshire, gave his Gers home a complete makeover ahead of the Ibrox club’s defeat by Eintracht Frankfurt.
The 32-year-old adorned his home with Union Jack flags and flags, as well as Rangers crests and a series of messages of support including “Make us dream” in blue and white paint on his garden panels.

The father-of-two also painted his grass red, white and blue for the occasion – but social media users were quick to point out that the colors didn’t quite reflect the colors of the Union Jack, reports The Daily Record.
Heather Gail Thomson commented, “Looks more like green, white and gold to me”.
While Stephen O’Donnell said, “That’s definitely Green White and Gold.”
Meanwhile, John Mceachen said, “You can paint the grass any color you want, but it’s still GREEN!”
And Ann O’malley chimed in with a different perspective and asked, “Ivory Coast supporters?”
Rangers Daft George went to great lengths to dress up their lawn in the club’s famous colors – using a paint roller to get the job done.
He also borrowed a ladder from a friend to hang the flag over his living room window.
But he admitted his daughters, Mirren, 11, and Keavie, eight, were less than impressed when they returned home from school to witness the bright overhaul.
George told LanarkshireLive: “I actually had a roller, I was in the process of painting it.
“That took about two hours because the roller isn’t designed to paint grass.
“It turned out better than I expected. But the rain has suffered a little, so I have to go out again and touch up.
“My kids weren’t too happy yesterday when they came home and saw me mowing the lawn.
“I think they were more shocked. It was a case of ‘oh what are you doing’, probably a bit awkward.
“I usually put up my pennants and flags, but this time I decided to step it up just because of the size of the game.”
