    Think the problem is that "neutral" families will now sway towards the BHEAST due to their positive PR machine.

    Rutherglen traditionally has been Rangers although i feel its becoming more 50/50. Think we shade it at the moment

    Unfortunately very true. I stay in Edinburgh and just the other day passed a house where you see that the wee boy (about 6 years old) now adorns the mhanky rag. The family are Jambo’s but the boy has been corrupted by them winning - albeit corruptly. I will need to have a word with the father before it is too late!

    Weird to think that these days a jambo family would allow such behaviour. Not long ago that would not have happened. How times have changed eh?

    To be fair, there are parts of Clydebank which very much are staunch, though there are others which are more stench than staunch I'll admit. Still a hell of a lot of descendants of shipyard workers in the town and they were largely Rangers. Like most places, the bowling clubs & golf clubs, of which there are many, are almost exclusively Rangers, not to mention the Masonics.

    Whitecrook and most of Duntocher would be stench, Hardgate, Parkhall and probably Faifley mostly staunch. Town centre pretty mixed.

    Baillieston is debatable.

    There's 3 different supporters clubs leaving Baillieston for Ibrox every second Saturday - 2 from the masonic and 1 from the log cabin.

    Then you also have Swinton and Garrowhill busses which are arguably Baillieston.

    So 5 busses every Second Saturday - the taigs have 1 from Swinton.

    But in their favour we don't have 1 rangers boozer and they have multiple fenian sh*tholes

    Blantyre and Hamilton have more of the mhanky variety I'm afraid mate,EK is probably slightly more bears than them but not by a huge amount in my experience.
    Your hometown is either bears or folk that like rugby and don't care,same in surrounding villages where I am although closer you get to West Linton way more Hearts fans pop up.

    Western Isles - Lewis, Harris, North Uist all blue.

    Anything South is bandit country.

    I’d argue that the majority of the highlands would be blue, a lot of bears travel from up north for Rangers games.

    If he has a beast top on its already too late. I don't know how any self respecting family can allow this to happen. Chain the wee bastard up until he's old enough to be thrown out into the street and forgotten about.

    Would also have no hesitation in saying Islay is 75/25 in favour of Rangers. Have friends over there and everywhere you look there's someone with a Rangers strip on! There are a variety of Church of Scotland churches on the island yet only one Catholic one so can see why.

    I don't think that they are outbreeding us it may be simply that RCs by and large support only one team and that obviously is celtic whereas many protestants in the central belt will support their local team, added to that there seems to be a growing number from protestant , non denominational backgrounds who now follow the mhanks.
    On that point does anyone know a catholic who supports Rangers ???

    There aren't any areas where the tramps outnumber us.

    The blunt truth is Scotland is still 80% proddy 20% tim. It drives them crazy that this is simply true.

    All that happens is that tims seem to herd together near tim school bigot factories and then they appear to be a large part of the population, because they never have their shitey green and grey crap off their unwashed bodies.

    We are the people, timmy, and don't you forget it :D

    For any Ayrshire Bears.

    I have family in Galston and when I first visited them it seemed to be fairly blue.
    Recent years I’ve noticed more of a pape influence when I’ve been over.
    Twice in fact in pubs I’ve witnessed some typical fenian like behaviour.

    It was indeed. Also, the Dolphin was a beggar shop, but largely outnumbered by Rangers pubs, mainly towards the west end of Dumbarton Road with a few exceptions such as Memories.

    Partick is definitely a prod zone. Many a bear friendly pub to choose from along with Rosevale RSC. 2 bheast pubs in the whole area that need to cower and close the shutters when they see a cultural walk go by!

    I'd venture that the Rangers support represents a far broader range of cultures and religions that the Tims who, I would guess, draw their support from a very narrow ( and narrow minded) section of society. And yet we're tarred with the sectarian brush more than them.

    There has to be more rangers fans residing in and around Partick than celtic and Partick fans combined. And by miles.

    Partick is very much a blue stronghold (minus two shitehole pubs), more so than many an area in Glasgow.

    Shawlands is letting it's self down these days with Sweeneys on the park and Hegertys being rat traps. Although was glad when Kelly's closed this year.

    Still mostly staunch though. Even our hipster bars like the Butterfly and Pig have a hand above the door.
