How much easier would this be pre and post match?

If they are driving, they park on Broomloan Road.
If they are on the bus they use the bus park.
If they are on the subway/bus to city centre they use Govan (subway train from Govan doesn't stop at Ibrox/Cessnock, subway train from Ibrox/Cessnock doesn't stop at Govan)

With 1,200 instead of 7,700 of them the dispersal time would be far less. There would be far less impact on bears e.g. heading towards the WRC and Albion.

A win for the police
A win for the locals
A win for the bears
A win for the board
A win for Everyone.

How do they cordon the Wee Rangers Club before and after with most Tims entering from that side?
Based on times I've been to the WRC on derby day, there's no segregation as such.

Plenty police and we just walk out in a group and walk towards the ground with plenty of verbals flying both ways.

...............Except Timmy.


Serious point to be made here though. How resource intensive is the police cordoning of the post match (especially?)

Pretty certain the rate per hour for 1 x PC is £50 or thereabouts, sure it was a standard charge that concerts, parades, football clubs etc all get hit with. If you can police this match with 100 cops less say on a 6 hours duty, that is about £30k+VAT to be saved. This might help offset any financial reasons the board might come up with for moving them.

Segregation is usually across each side of Edmiston Drive from about the Wee Rangers Club down. You can always walk down the front of the main stand from that direction. That picture seems to indicate we won't be able to.
At the end of the segregation we are held until every fenian has passed by on the other side of the road, we have been held there for just short of an hour in the pissing rain and cold. We now head back towards KP, to head west.

Not on return, we are stopped,and held on the Albion side of the road.

I think the 5 0 want the filth away as kick as possible.
The large no go areas stops any potential boxing.

One glaringly obvious solution to this.

Put them in the corner. The board really need to get with the fans on this issue.
Agreed, when we’re told they can’t due to segregation problems it’s absolute bs. Pretty sickening that we have to endure these bheasts because there’s bears (& our board) who want us to get as many tickets for their midden.
There is no case for it, none whatsoever

The corner creates natural safe internal segregation area as per other fans.

They might need to widen the dividing empty seat lines at either side of the corner, but surely no more than for same category games such as sheep and hibs.

Absolute shambles

Multiple people in wheelchairs

The police blocked the pavement

Forced onto the road behind complex with cars allowed to fight through.

Its boring Greg. Get the police told it ends now.

To reiterate.

To make absolutely clear

The stated post match cordon in OP was not what was enforced

They moved a further 10 yards to the edge of the pavement taking the space down even further.

I managed to get past the Police and cut across the grass along with a few others.

Policewoman grabbed a few bears and pushed them back. Not sure if others got across behind us
