K-pop group STAYC greet fans at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow after Rangers kit mix-up | UK News

A K-pop group that mistakenly wore Rangers FC shirts during a performance in the US were warmly welcomed to Glasgow during a visit to Ibrox Stadium.

STAYC, pronounced Stacey, had worn the 1990s Rangers FC strip during a show in Texas last month, thinking it was a kit worn by the Dallas Rangers baseball team.

The Scottish club later invited the group to the stadium, where they introduced themselves to a large group of supporters who gathered outside Edmiston House.

Another band member shouted: “We love Rangers!”

The crowd cheered and fans took photographs while the band posed in a custom-made Rangers FC strip, each with the number 23 and STAYC printed on the back.

STAYC, a female K-pop group from South Korea, consists of band members Isa, Seeun, Yoon, J, Sumin and Sieun.

The group formed in 2020 and soon became popular, with a following across much of Asia and the West.
