One of the biggest names in British football is helping veterans get fitter - both physically and mentally.

Rangers Football Club and SSAFA: Glasgow's Helping Heroes have teamed up for the Glasgow Veterans United project.

The 12-week course combines physical activity with lifestyle coaching to help former service personnel who are having difficulties adapting to civilian life.

The veterans take part in training sessions as they work their way to a Level 1 coaching certificate from the Scottish Football Association while taking part in group counselling session at Ibrox Stadium with life coaches.

The programme aims to give them a higher level of physical fitness and give them the skills to deal cope with any mental health or addiction issues they have developed after leaving the military.
