Kilmarnock will bank best part of £1,000,000 from us this season

4 home games with about 8,000 Rangers fans there.
And a share of the gate at Ibrox in the Cup replay.
Fair amount of money to a team like Kilmarnock

Could make even more if they didnt insist on acres of empty seats.
Back in the days of terracing, I used to go and watch Rangers at Rugby Park and it was usually heaving without a gap to be found.
But most Scottish grounds were like that for an away game involving Rangers.
Changed days indeed, and it doesn't do the Scottish game any favours, it seems nuts that a stadium is half empty and that potential customers are locked out.

There are a lot of clubs in Ayrshire incredibly well supported in the Juniors and a credit to the game itself.

Killie are in almost every way a detriment to that-that pitch,style of play,managers lack of class.

Pathetic.

To give the Killie fans the benefit of the doubt.... I would pay to watch my home team every second week on a plastic pitch.

When you look at the crowds these teams get there is no doubt we are subsidising them. I was surprised how small the crowd was for the recent Hibs v Aberdeen game and you wonder how much our away support keeps them going.

Even though they abstained in 2012, their fans wanted us gone, even though they are going to get £1m from us, I bet those fans still want us gone

Remember though that a abstention was the same as a no vote. We needed yes votes, so abstaining or voting no had exactly the same outcome.

Was it? I didn't realise that, I've always thought they weren't quite as bad as the rest, but they obviously are.

Johnstone said that gers going out league would cost killie .
Tims supporters asscn told all clubs if they voted for us they would boycott their grounds,
Which they did to killie.
As with us, the tims took both stands,
During the boycott, one stand was closed and the other partially filled
I don't know the present situ

They have cost me 110pounds n bets that pitch should be banned total farce.
The old killie groundsman works for Troon fc and portland park is in fantastic condition.
Hes not at Troon now i know him very well and he is not 100% health wise

Don't get me started. I've not been to an away ground since we came back up. If we get through and draw Scumdee hivs, we'll fill out their ground as well. Absolutely baffling. Sometimes you've got to make a point, unfortunately that goes right over the head of some of our fans.

I'm sure I said somewhere back in the mid 90s that killie had the 3rd biggest travelling support. Looking at a lot of attendance reports, they've been going down over the years. Only ours has remained constant

I will be at the replay because I’m going to support The Rangers but I wish there was some way we could pay for the game without having to split the gate money with clubs that hate us

All that money from Rangers supporters and they don't care a jot for our safety,get your stairs properly marked so we can find our rows and seats in a safe manner.

Abstaining was fine by me, there shouldn't even have been a vote in the first place and they just didn't want any part of it. Much rather it was Kilmarnock than any of the other 11 from 2012. I'll never give any of them a penny ever again, not even at Ibrox for a split gate cup game.

The sheep had less than 8k at their home cup game yesterday,and they once again gave us a small allocation on Wednesday.

They used to fill the entire Broomloan front when they first came up.

I think this thread is a bit unfair, Kilmarnock has really suffered the last 15 years with unemployment. Johnny Walker closing and various factories hit the town hard.
