Dundee United fans boo at minute silence during Rangers clash at Ibrox

Rangers returned to winning ways after they win against Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership clash on Saturday (17 September) at Ibrox.

The Bears have poured great tribute following the passing of the Queen of Britain, but Dundee United fans booed at Ibrox during the minute silence prior to the kick-off, as noted by Jordan Campbell of The Athletic.

After that, Rule Britannia rang out around the stadium.

Campbell wrote on Twitter: “A large section of the Dundee United support boo the minute’s silence at Ibrox and sing “Lizzie’s in a box”. Rule Britannia now ringing out around the stadium in retaliation. Didn’t expect any disturbance to be as loud as that.”

Respect

Rangers showed great respect for the Queen during the midweek Champions League clash.

The Dundee United fans have embarrassed themselves here. The Gers fans have countered them brilliantly.

The Bears were heading into this game on the back of three straight defeats.

They lost to Celtic and Ajax by 4-0 and suffered another 3-0 defeat against Napoli. However, it can be said that their performance was way better at Ibrox against the Italian club.

Van Bronckhorst needed a strong response from his players. He dropped Alfredo Morelos and James Sands from the starting line-up but brought in young Leon King.

The decision to start with Antonio Colak was vindicated as the striker converted from close range.

James Tavernier, who was very poor in the previous three games, looked like he has rediscovered his mojo, as he squared up for Colak in the first half.

Ryan Jack was superb for the home side in the middle of the park, and he nearly got an assist to his name in the opening minute but Ryan Kent missed a glorious opportunity.

In other Rangers news, Barry Ferguson is raging at this “spectacular failure” at Ibrox.
