Video clip shows Dundee United fans disgracing minute's silence at Rangers with vile chant
Up-close video footage has emerged of Dundee United fans booing and chanting during the minute’s silence ahead of their 2-1 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday.
Ahead of kick-off in the Scottish Premiership clash, Queen Elizabeth II was honoured with a minute’s silence.
However, the silence was disrupted by the vile behaviour of Dundee United supporters, as shown in video footage right in front of the away fans.
Rangers fan Colin Armstrong uploaded the footage to his personal Twitter account, which you can watch by clicking this link as we’re unprepared to upload it to our website.
It’s not a crime to be disrespectful and to interrupt a minute’s silence, which explains why the police officers did nothing to stop the Dundee United fans for their gross chant about Her Late Majesty.
However, the SFA should be coming down on the Terrors – and Celtic – for the way their fans have disgraced the Scottish game with their actions.
Rangers have been widely praised for their tributes to Queen Elizabeth II since her sad passing earlier this month.
We saw an immaculate minute’s silence on Wednesday for the Champions League clash with Napoli, as well as a beautiful tifo with the Queen’s silhouette on top of a Union Flag.
It was a superb show of support for the Royal Family.
And then you have Celtic fans and Dundee United fans.
They’re not only a stain on Scottish football, they’re a disgrace to their country.
The SFA have to respond to this. It’s sickening and this kind of behaviour will only stop if they pull their finger out and actually do something about it.
Dundee United fans probably wouldn’t have done it if they played St Mirren or someone like that this weekend.
