    I wondered in anyone might please help to resolve the following photograph, which is proving to be a puzzle:

    It's online and seems to be entirely unattributed.

    Is it a hoax, 'Photoshop' image (why would you do with a trawler)?

    Or is it perhaps more profoundly, seriously, related to the following online article:

    'Rangers back appeal to bring home fishermen feared dead in Nancy Glen tragedy*at tonight’s Aberdeen clash'.

    Unfortunately, the related newspaper URL is just too long for posting.

    Is anyone possibly able to definitively clarify this?

    Thank you.

    Lots of boats got the Rangers crest on the side of the wheelhouse in the NE of Scotland , lots of boats got Celtic crest or Aberdeen crest as well just seems to be something the Peterhead/Fraserburgh boats have done for years

    That's surly the simple explanation. Thanks, not only from myself, (there's been quite a few of us perplexed)!

    Which all makes sense now! That's brilliant.
