Rangers Tax Case Ruling To Be Appealed; Fans Plan Tannadice Park Boycott
Published December 5, 2012
RANGERS FANS PLAN BOYCOTT: In Glasgow, Scott McDermott reported Rangers fans’ groups are "planning a boycott" of Tannadice Park for its Scottish Cup tie against former Scottish Premier League rivals Dundee United. Rangers Supporters Assembly President Andy Kerr said that Dundee United -- more than any club in Scotland -- was "the one they would take a stance against if they got them in the draw." Kerr "expects the vast majority of like-minded fans to boycott the clash on Tayside" due to a feud, which started when Rangers followers were charged twice by United Chair Stephen Thompson for a rearranged SPL match in Nov. '09 (DAILY RECORD, 12/4). A statement from the Rangers Supporters Assembly said, "We ask the support to resist temptation of attending the game but rather give your hard-earned cash to a Rangers-friendly pub, bar or club." It continued, "We also understand the desire to support the team -- the fans have demonstrated this to unbelievable lengths of loyalty -- but we ask that on this occasion in a one-off display of fan power we show that we have not been beaten or broken" (HERALD SCOTLAND, 12/4).
