Assembly demands action on St.Mirren ticket prices

The Rangers Supporters Assembly are urging Rangers FC to ensure that action is taken against St Mirren FC, due to ticket prices for this weekend's match at St Mirren Park which are completely unfair and may well be in contravention of SPL rules.
A family of four visiting Rangers fans - two adults and two children - will be forced to pay a total of £92 for seats behind the goal. In stark contrast, a family of four St Mirren fans, will be charged only £52 for a similar view of the game from behind the opposite goal. A massive difference of £40
St Mirren fans will pay only £26 for a parent and child ticket in the Reid Kerr stand. Rangers fans will pay £27 for an adult and £19 for a child. Furthermore, these prices are even higher than St Mirren fans in the Main Stand, who will pay £25 and £17 for a better view of the game.
St Mirren can't possibly defend these prices by claiming the Reid Kerr Stand is a special family stand. One of our members telephoned last week and was offered two adult tickets for the price of £20 each, with no need for a child to accompany them. Our member specifically stated that the purpose of the two tickets was to sit near friends and that no children's tickets were required.
St Mirren may argue that the price increase is a direct result of Rangers' demands for a 5% levy but that does not justify such a significant difference.
