A late bid for this year's Official Christmas Number 1 has emerged today (December 21): The Dave Clark Five's 1963 single Glad All Over.
Rangers football have launched a last minute campaign to get their new anthem to the top of the charts this Christmas in support of striker Joe Garner.
The song was played out during a match last Friday (December 16), when Rangers beat Hamilton 2-1. Fans chanted the track with the chorus changed from: "I'm feeling... glad all over" to "We've got... Joey Garner".
Following a surge of sales yesterday, OfficialCharts.com can reveal that Glad All Over has entered at Number 64 in today's sales flash, and was one of the biggest selling songs in the UK in the last 24 hours.
Glad All Over reached Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart in 1963, knocking off The Beatles' I Want To Hold Your Hand.
The song has also been used in various forms by other clubs across the UK and is also used by Crystal Palace on matchdays.
The hashtag #JoeyGarnerChristmasNumberOne was trending on Twitter for most of yesterday (December 20); and as you can imagine, football fans are an imaginitive bunch with their tweets...
