The Union Bears continued with their protest in the drab defeat to Aberdeen on Tuesday night, as they look to force the club’s hand with safe-standing.

The Rangers fans group ant the Broomloan Front to be a safe standing section for supporters. They believe it’ll enhance the atmosphere and make Ibrox a better place to visit. The club have so far denied any proposals.

As a result, they’ve withdrawn participation in two recent matches. The most recent came against Dundee, where we won 4-0.

Whilst fans where conflicted on the previous protest, their lack of action on Tuesday night’s Aberdeen match and the subsequent throwing of materials onto the pitch drew much criticism.


Whilst the general frustration of the result had a hand in fan’s frustrations with the Union Bears, some backed the group.

Other supporters feel that the group’s withdrawal had little significance on the result. They also believe the onus was on other supporters to fill the gap. It’s an issue that certainly has Rangers fans talking.


No matter your opinion on the Union Bears situation, it looks like they’re at an impasse with the club. The group want safe standing installed but the club are not yet willing to facilitate it.

Will that come when the UB clean up any sectarian singing? Or when the club can get those season ticket holders in the seats to move to another section of the ground?

One thing is for sure, it’s unlikely to be the last protest we see from the fans group.
