Record attendances this year?


Recommended Posts

Club website is showing only 3 seats left for Rangers v Livi on 14th September. Looks like we are on for record attendances this year?

Looking back through the Souness & Smith eras, it was amazing to see that we were getting only 30k v Steaua in the European Cup, 37K v Auxerre, 34k v Grasshoppers, 38K v Boavista, 41k v Gornik, 23k v Red star Belgrade - all when we had a team bulging with international household names and a capacity of 44,500.

Probably down to the extreme interest rates in the late 80ss meaning the avg Joe couldn't afford to go as they were probably on thier arse and just about making the mortgage payments.

Or trying to scrape enough together to get the new school uniforms. 😁

IMHO it's not that surprising.  During the Souness / Smith era we were used to winning trophies and the support became blase about the actual matches themselves.  However we have now been starved for far far too long of a real trophy that actually matters we are crying out for success so we go in huge numbers just waiting for the day when we reach 55.

Long may our support continue to turn up in huge numbers.
