Hearts and Motherwell could come under pressure to ban Rangers away fans

Hearts and Motherwell could come under pressure to ban Rangers away fans from their stadia for matches, according to Sportsmail.

Away fans are still not allowed to attend matches at Ibrox this term, and both clubs have written to the SPFL seeking answers over the lockout.

Hearts visit Rangers next month, and they are keen to find a solution as the Scottish champions continue to allocate no tickets to away fans.

Motherwell were allocated no away tickets when they visited Ibrox and left with a point in the 1-1 draw earlier this month, and the SPFL could consider a reasonable away allocation if Hearts lodge a formal complaint.


The Bears were affected a lot last term after covid-19 restrictions were put in place, with home fans being moved from main stands at Ibrox.

Restrictions have been largely lifted and away fans are expected to return with grounds now close to full capacity this term.

However, Rangers are not keen on welcoming visitors yet, and they could be paid back in their own coin by Hearts and Motherwell.

The fan-owned community clubs are ready to ban Light Blues fans, and things could get messy.

There is no fun in having only the home crowd at Ibrox, but the financial boost it brings is no doubt welcoming.

The club sold out 45,000 season tickets ahead of the 2021-22 campaign, with supporters buying the maximum number of tickets available for a sixth consecutive season.

They want to satisfy their fans first, and while there is nothing wrong with that, Steven Gerrard and his men must be ready to play at Hearts and Motherwell without their supporters in the away end.

In other Rangers news, Bears Super Fans have agreed with what Chris Sutton has said about class act.
