We've now started to ruin birthday parties

A Rangers fans group have been criticised amid claims a 70-year-old’s birthday party had to be cancelled because of a pre-match demonstration.

The Union Bears led a march to Ibrox Stadium before the club’s tie with St Mirrenlast week, having previously been criticised for a similar walk before an Old Firm game this year.

Hundreds of supporters were seen marching down Brand Street, banging drums, chanting and some holding flares.

And that is said to have prompted the family of an elderly resident at the Ailsa Craig Care Home to shut down a birthday bash.


Police Scotland have admitted they are finding it difficult to track the organisers of the march but warned that season ticketscould be confiscated.

Inspector Kevin Lammie said: “It’s challenging to find out who the organiser is. Police have an intelligence department where we’re reviewing these incidents.

“These will be reported to Rangers who take a very dim view with season tickets being taken off people.”

But area councillor Ricky Bell hit back and said: “It can’t be that hard to find out who is organising it. You could start by asking the guy at the front of the march holding the megaphone.

“It’s exactly what was said after the first one in March before the Old Firm game. The same type of behaviour has taken place again outside an old folks’ home.

“There’s been some fairly severe action taken against fans of other clubs in the city, but I think we’d like to get assurances that you are doing something here.

“It’s not acceptable just to allow this to go on as a permanent fixture within the football calendar in and around the Ibrox and Cessnock area.”

In March this year, a similar demonstration was criticised after flares were set off and a banner portraying someone being kicked was held by supporters.

Stephen Dornan, who recently led calls to stop Rangers using the Ibrox Football Centre for a fan zone, called for season tickets to be taken from those who use flares or hold offensive banners.


He added: “There was a march and it stopped outside the old folks’ home. A birthday party at the home was cancelled because of that.

“That kind of thing happened in the East End with ǝpɐbıɹq uǝǝɹb ǝɥʇ but there doesn’t seem to be the same urgency to deal with it here.

“It cannot continue because some of the stuff there is generally offensive. Banners portraying people with their heads kicked-in can’t continue.”

An Ailsa Craig Care Home source said: “The home didn’t cancel the birthday party, it was the family’s decision.

 

This is from.the herald and it's becoming a fucking joke.

What exactly are they going to charge them with.? 

Walking to a stadium is surely not illegal. Neither is chanting for the most part. 

There is a concerted effort to portray Rangers fans as hooligans which the media is only too happy to help out with. 

There always seems to be tims on hand to film it all and get it off to the media. 

The silly fuds dont realise it wont be Rangers in trouble it will be ALL clubs. 

They tried this before with the sectarian singing and chanting laws and it backfired on them when more of them got nicked than ours. 

Its not that our games are any different, its just nobodys filming them or making up stories about sandcastles and bottled weans.

Surely some of the old timers also got to see fans of their club proudly marching to a match bringing joy to the many who attended  

That's why it was actually cancelled mate

what a load of absolute shite!

Police Scotland have admitted they are finding it difficult to track the organisers of the march but warned that season tickets could be confiscated.  - I'm pretty sure I could track them down in about 15 minutes and under what law could they confiscate tickets?

And cancelling the party - how long with the UB's outside the home?  ffs

Reveal their identities and backgrounds or take their clothes off?

An Ailsa Craig Care Home source said: “The home didn’t cancel the birthday party, it was the family’s decision."

Yet no quotes from family members as to the reason why. Funny that.

No doubt we'll get the usual comments of ignore these things, paranoia etc but there is a clear anti Rangers media agenda. No doubt about it.

Whilst this isn't particularly offensive it's yet another example of bad Rangers fans. It gives air to the likes of Dornan to spout anti Rangers shite. And it follows on from sandcastlegate where the kids old man talked about it always being big bad Rangers supporters in the press. Yet it's often with unsubstantiated or ridiculous shite like this.

Dehumanization. It's happening.
