Bell, a former Parks’ of Hamilton employee, first drove the Rangers team buses across the country before going on to his current position as first-team director of kit.
The Bell family has received condolences from all across the world.
“As a club, we are profoundly devastated to learn of the passing of our colleague and, more importantly, our close friend, Jimmy Bell,” Rangers chairman Douglas Park said.
“Jimmy gave his entire life to the Rangers Football Club.” Working under managers ranging from Graeme Souness to Giovanni, he witnessed some of the most memorable moments in our 150-year history. Of course, he was present at some of the lowest periods, and he demonstrated unselfish dedication regardless of the task at hand. Jimmy Bell Cause Of Death
“Jimmy’s work ethic was unrivaled. For each training session and game, he put in endless hours of preparation. He thrived on working for his boyhood club, and no job was too big or small for him.
“I communicated with Jimmy on a frequent basis because I knew him from his time at Park’s as a mechanic and bus driver. He was looking forward to the game on Thursday night at Ibrox, especially as he had previously played in a European semi-final under Walter Smith.
“Today, Rangers and Scottish football as a whole lost a legend and a friend.” He was a caring father, grandpa, and spouse who loved his family. Jimmy will be dearly missed, and on behalf of Rangers Football Club, I express our warmest condolences to the entire Bell family at this terrible time.” Jimmy Bell Cause Of Death
