Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh has made one Rangers fan's dream come true on Twitter this morning.
The 63 year-old Edinburgh native gave away his ticket to next week's Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville for free.
Welsh, who is a die-hard West Ham fan, took to Twitter to reveal that he had a spare ticket for the showpiece final and "rather than waste it" he wanted to donate it to a Gers supporter.
He tweeted: "As West Ham unfortunately didn’t make the Europa final, I now have a spare ticket. Rather than waste it I would like to donate it to a Rangers fan.
"This is not a hoax, please get in touch if interested. Will need details to transfer it to your phone as guest for UEFA security."
The tweet sparked a flurry of shares and responses from folk keen on securing a gold-dust entry to the game, which is being held at Sevilla's Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium next Wednesday night.
Among them was commentator Clive Tyldesley, who responded: "[Ally] McCoist is after one for his son."
Having posted the tweet at around 8:30am this morning, Welsh followed up 30 minutes later with a tweet confirming he had given the ticket away.
He did so while encouraging any other West Ham fans who may be holding onto a ticket to pass them on to Rangers fans.

He tweeted: "Hi everyone just to say that the ticket has gone to a guy on here - he’s been in touch with his details and we’re just waiting on UEFA completing the transfer. Sorry I couldn’t have helped out more people who wanted to see the game.
"If any West Ham mates are holding, check my TL."
A class act from Welsh, we must say.
