Heads up!

Discovered by the Bridgeton Loyal who've been in talks with David Martin all week about their brand new 24ft x 24ft banner.

Both Rangers & Hibs security had gave the banner the ok as it's professionally made and has all the required safety certification.

The Bridgeton Loyal lads just found out tonight from Rangers that Police Scotland have said NO large banners will be allowed into Easter Road on Sunday.

Looks like certain people at Police Scotland are really trying to put a dampner on this Cup final.

Was there any reason given?

Nope. Someone (or some people) at Police Scotland have made the decision.

I think the BL have been told the new banner will be fine for Ibrox, but that no large banners will be allowed into Easter Road.

They're discussing still taking it with them anyway.

Sad isn't it.

Another nail in the freedom of expression coffin.

They'll probably try and justify it as being a safety measure.

Yes, but if they don't get it in, then someone could have a long walk back to their bus and the same will go for anyone who takes one.

This decision from Police Scotland has the mark of the bheast written all over it.

It's out of order.

The goon brigade's four horsemen banner was maybe 3 or 4 times the size of this Bridgeton Loyal one and they've had numerous other big banners in recent times which were not only offensive, but home made and uncertified.

How do they define a "big banner"?

I was thinking the same thing. The new BL banner is 24ft x 24ft which is pretty damn big, but up to what size will be allowed?

The Club need to sort this out quick style and tell fans what the max size of flag or banner is for Sunday.

Here's Police Scotland's reasoning:

"Due to the amount of pyro being taken to games in the past, banners are a perfect way for those lighting off pyro to hide behind, so large banners will not be allowed in at Easter Road"

.... "Even tho we've git this apparently amazing dug that can sniff oot pyro, thurs prolly still gawny be pyro in there n thull hide ahind eh big banners"

- Top Cop.

This is where Rangers need to defend their fans

Police Scotland are purposely trying to ruin our day

The climbed down over the taigs banners at Perth a few months back because their club backs their fans

Absolutely this, being treated like absolute shit by whoever is co-ordinating the policing for Sunday, fucking disgrace. Rangers need to do something here and stick up for the fans - can't see it happening myself though.

Instead of doing strip searches and breath tests then why not check the large banners before going into the ground if they feel that strongly about it, although we all know this is just an excuse to put a dampner on the day. As others have said the club should be questioning this, it's a total disgrace
