The support need to back the team more-yesterday was dire.

Totally agree OP but I'm afraid the fact is that the vocal minority at Ibrox believe they're there to be entertained above all else. Actually backing the team comes 2nd for them. Not an attitude I agree with, but they pay their money the same as you and me so what can you do. Same for the ones who f*ck off at 84 minutes every week.

You honestly wonder why people like this put themselves through the misery every week? Why spend thousands of pounds every year on a hobby that you actually dont even get any joy out of? Its utterly baffling to me.
It's beyond me. Even when we play well his only comments are negative. It's a weird trait to have.

I understand the passion, I get the desire to see success and I fully understand the play can be frustrating at times.

However what's the point of berating individuals from the kick off and moaning and groaning through 90 mins?

It is at epidemic proportions and around me yesterday in the Main Stand there was everything from disagreements as Bears tried to get frankly idiots to give it a rest to scuffles where stewards were called.

We can't win games for the team but we don't need to make it harder for them. Nobody expects everyone to be happy clappy and we can all at times get frustrated and vocalise it but for 90 mins, constantly?

Yesterday was dire it would put you off going and I fear it will only get worse. People need to grow up and ask themselves what good are they doing?
Could not agree with this anymore. We’ve got to be a support that players and staff just love playing for. Not one where everyone just moans like F!

Wonder how many on here slagging the atmosphere were still in their seats at full time , I reckon about 75% of the stadium was empty by then.

Ibrox has been bad for a while now.

Legia got behind their team for the full game last week.
Some of our fans comments on that were:
Shower of fannies
State of them
Fukin bawbags
A while?

Attended my first game with my old man 63.

Started going with my mates 72.

It's always been the same.

What I will say is it got a bit worse when 15k Johnny come latelys appeared from nowhere in 86.

I think the 15k you mention are the spoiled mob. According to some its because of the team. I ask them, do you only sing when youre winning?

Football is just like most entertainment industries, if a shit comedian comes on no one laughs,pish singer the same. I know football is different but we still need entertained so when it went the way it did first half most people's natural reaction is to get anxious. The pressure is on the fan's as well to stop the mhanks

Without going down the amateur psychologist route, I think there's a lot of people who take out their frustrations with life at the football.
They get to vent their spleen anonymously at people for 90 minutes and then walk away with no consequences.
Glaswegian men are not renowned for talking about their feelings so this probably exacerbates the cathartic abuse.

There's more than a bit of truth to this.

A pertinent thread.

Yesterday was a joke. Booing at the half-time whistle is beyond a joke. These cretins know f**k all about football. Do these 'fans' appreciate how difficult it is for our standard of player to break down ten men behind the ball? Do they think it is okay to boo a team who should've been at least two up at the break?

Can they even contemplate the notion of energy conservation given that there is a big game coming up on thursday night?

And then we have people leaving from 75 minutes onward. Fair play, the game was a poor watch but fans should 'support' the team and that means no booing and staying until the end.

The Ibrox support still has overtones of arrogance and self entitlement despite what has happened to us in the not so distant past.

These people have short memories.

Know this place is swarming with vermin, and their obsessive ex girlfriend behaviour.

And take it from there.

As for Ibrox..... we expect a level of display against relegation fodder. A guy started for Livingston yesterday who I played with years ago, wasn’t even in the top 5 at that level in our 11.

Deal with it or don’t play for Rangers.

If fans can sing when theyre in their pubs with their mates theyy can do it at Ibrox to get behind the team

A defeat by Celtic changes the narrative. Sorry to say that the Rangers support has always been that way, quick to jump on their own team, not all but a sizeable amount.

I've thought this for years and beyond this it defines their happiness and success in life....of course we are all ten foot high after a good result but we need to keep it in perspective.

This is also true-there was an element of you owe us or make it up to us and when the team starts slowly...ouch.

Guy next to me, did the off after 20-25 mins. What's the point of coming in the first place? Yes, the players were ultra slow at moving the ball. Yes, Alfie missed a sitter. Yes, Livingston parked the bus and fouled where possible. And then you have punters (mainly in the Copland and Govan) booing at half time.

What do people expect?

I understand people being frustrated, and the game is always easier from the stand, but would we be really all that worse off if these fans did find another hobby and didn't bother coming back?

I would say, probably not.

Maybe you should think about this.

If I expect the best from the players maybe I can offer something positive back to the team.

Maybe your mantra if we are the people and we can't contribute something positive maybe we should go and support someone else?

The Away support is the polar opposite, they get behind the team for 90 minutes.

At Ibrox people seem to turn up, sit back and expect to be entertained. If we don’t score immediately then every c*nt is useless.

I went to my first away game in years at Kilmarnock in January and the abuse Worrall was receiving was disgusting. Still a better atmosphere than Ibrox but the players can get it stinking away from home as well.

I sit beside my mate and we both discussed yesterday that Ojo will have to seriously up his game if he wants to make it here or indeed at any level.

What we didn't do is scream abuse at him calling him all manner of names into the bargain.

Cries of frustration are one thing, actively getting to your feet and screaming at our players cannot be defended in any way. It's completely out of order, counterproductive and we'd be better off as a club if these people just didn't attend.

I honestly think that part of the reason is simply that a sizeable percentage of Glaswegians are just miserable bastards :D

I sat for years in my ST in CR2 and we had numerous miserable cants around us who just seem to be at the game to vent their load and spew out abuse every single week.

I genuinely used to spend significant amount of time speculating just how shite their lives must be that it produces that amount of pent up frustration :D

I eventually gave up trying to get singing started and get those around me to support the team. It was pointless. Only games in europe or v the various forms of tims and the sheep ever produced a decent atmosphere

Too true mate. Scots are at their best when they're moaning and whinging. Sadly, it's part of our dna as a race of people.

I did wonder if it's actually part of our national character. It's certainly how others perceive us....I work south of the border and my English colleagues take it as a given that I'll be the first one to moan about workloads, clients, toilets being dirty etc.

Thought yesterday was poor against a poor side, so I get the frustration. But shouting abuse at the players is not on - at anytime. I also don’t get the whistling at halftime either.
We chat between ourselves and have the odd moan-we all think we know better! But we never get up and shout abuse at players

There’s a slight irony in this thread after all the “we don’t need the Union Bears” posts a few weeks ago.
There's not really the UB made no difference yesterday to the toxic atmosphere that's one aspect.

They actually weren't very loud in general-they might try their best and I get that but there have been incidents in signing that has led the club into trouble that came from their area...might not be them but started over in that section.

I hear what you're saying, but energy conservation is not on from the start of the game. The league is our one and only objective this season, Europe is a bonus. It is frustrating watching us play across the back, sometimes up to 15 passes whilst the other team filter back and get their defensive shape sorted before we cross the halfway line. Totally agree shouting abuse at players benefits no one.
