Again way over the top.

For one wee shitie stand.

Surrounded by riot Police beating their shields to intimidate?

Snatch squads grabbing anyone in Stone Island gear?

Indiscriminate use of water cannon?

You need to elaborate as if it's the above that's way over the top.

Noticed on RTV about 15 cops standing at the far corner of the pitch. Seemed like overkill, particularly when the fans seemed to be blended together.

Cops were probably delighted to get to watch Rangers free.

Segregation and would not let us walk past their fans despite the fact we all leave through the same exit.

Agree with that went down to get a drink at half time only to see a line of about 6 or 7 cops looked like they were guarding the trays of sandwiches for the corporates. You could not make it up.

I have been to every game that we have played Dumbarton.

Yesterday was the first that we were made to take the long route round to get in.

I went to the first meeting last season and Rangers fans were made to take the long route before and after the match.

We were in The Rock Bowling Club so maybe it was the direction that we came from.

After the match it was the long way but not before.

It's a feature at most away games now sadly. The only exception I can really remember is when we played at QOTS or Berwick. Saying that though the police did come in to the stand before the match at QOTS to tell fans singing the Andy Halliday song was sectarian. From the first minute it's usually cameras aimed at us, police lined up infront of the stand. I must have missed the rioting and pillaging that has gone on previously at the likes of Brechin, Montrose and Stenhousemuir.

If you go to away games you must realise the policing is way over the top. The sarcastic "oh right" comment isn't needed.

I wasn't at Dumbarton yesterday, no. So far the indication is that yesterday it was way over the top because some folk were made to walk round the long way and that there were 15 of them.

It wasn't really sarcasm it was an acknowledgement that the OP answered my question.

Lucky you, I had to go all the way round each time I've been there

worst I noticed was the Airdrie game where there we had a concierge opening the doors and three security guards directing ever section to there seats.

There were more 'rock steady/G4' than at ibrox and again the token 15 cops in a corner all chatting.

It's not needed and its a shame for the smaller clubs who I presume must have to pay this.

Don't know why they bother with segregation at Dumbarton, only one way in and out everyone mingles with no issues

What exactly is the issue here? Too many police around the away support section?

half the bears were in the home end and jumped for both goals. Barring the odd Dumbarton fan shouting to get the bears papped out, it went off peaceful

overkill by the police

Before kick off just behind the goal. We just caught the end they didn't really argue just said it was sectarian then left the stand there was no real argument from either side. No reasons given or anything.

Last season a steward asked me if i was a Rangers fan, i said yes and he told me to go the long way but when he saw i was with my Dad ( who is over 70) he said we could go the short way. Also on the way out we walked past the row of mounties to go the short way. The amount of Police for 1900 people was ridiculous but typical of a country which sees football fans as a gravy train for the Police and stewarding companies to rob football Clubs blind

They need enough sectarian arrests to keep the anti-ranjurs unit funding.

They wont be keen to pick them up at the staade de gaad. That wont fit the agenda.

I was at second game there and was told to walk the long route or wait till the polis decided it was clear as for overkill mounted police for a crowd of 1,600 ridiculous

Take a stab at how many police were on duty at the recent music gigs in Bellahouston park?

Police Scotland looking for any excuse to up their income. Its a shame on the wee clubs who surely will have better things to spend their money on.

Is this thread for real?
There was a police presence that was larger than normal for a Dumbarton game and they directed Rangers fans safely home.
What a nightmare!

They work it well then, they've never been shy under the SNP or Labour to target football fans and in particular Rangers fans.

the steward said to me the song sounded like he ****s the pope and the ira lol

claiming thats what plod were going under , told him straight that wasnt the lyrics anyway but big boss in security room rules supreme it seems

even at that we should be celebrating our protestant culture and praise one of our own who actually plays for us

Nice freebie getting to watch your team and getting paid double time for it.
