Rangers fan group the Union Bears have hailed “positive discussions” with the club as they look to implement safe standing in Ibrox.

The group took to Facebook to tell fans they want to create the safe standing space in the ground by 2020.

They were also calling on fans who’re interested in joining the singing sections to get in touch. With season ticket renewals underway, they say this is “your chance to make a difference”.

The statement reads: “After positive discussions with the club regarding safe standing we will be remaining in BF1 next season with the aim of working towards the creation of a safe standing area within the stadium in 2020.”

The group then invites people who want to take part in safe standing to apply by getting in touch. Anyone interested in this should email [email protected] or send a message to the group’s Facebook page.

 

The Union Bears need your name, address, date of birth, a contact number, to know if you have a season ticket or not and your Rangers number (if applicable).

These are positive signs for the group who have been at odds with the club over safe standing for a while. Back in February, the Union Bears planned a range of protests to display their dissatisfaction.

The protests against Dundee and Aberdeen both polarised supporters at the time. It now appears as if real progress has been made and we’ll keep a close eye on how things develop in this area.
