A RANGERS fan has died just days after returning from a trip to Seville.
Tributes have poured in for Derek ‘Fergie’ Ferguson, 32, who tragically passed away after travelling to the Spanish resort to watch the Europa League final.
His distraught mum took to Facebook and wrote: “With a heavy heart, we have to tell you our son Fergie Ferguson passed away this morning.
“He was surrounded by his family. Our hearts are broken.”
As reported by the Daily Record, the former soldier died “out of the blue” from a series of heart conditions.
Hundreds of other well-wishers flocked to social media to pay tribute to the Gers fan from Saltcoats, Ayrshire.
His cousin wrote: “Fergie was so loved! Very popular and lived to party.
“His passion in life was Rangers who he followed near and far. But most of all Derek lived for his family.
“He was a much loved son, brother, brother in law, uncle, grandson, nephew and cousin, life will never be the same again. My heart is breaking for our family and I pray they find the strength to get them through the most difficult time of living without him.
“The three towns will be a very sad place mourning the loss of our huge character. He was always laughing and joking and life and soul of every party.”

As one wrote: “So sorry for your loss, thinking of you.”
Another said: “I have no words, totally shocked and heartbroken for you.”
While one added: “Thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family at this sad time.”
More than 100,000 Light Blues fans and up to 60,000 Frankfurt supporters are thought to have made their way to watch Rangers.
As they faced Eintracht Frankfurt in the historic showdown.
And a historic document has revealed Rangers was nearly called another name.
It comes as a first-person account detailing the club’s formation was unearthed – 76 years after it was penned.
Historian David Mason came into possession of the note, during his research for a new biography of the Ibrox club.
