As usual with these great older photos about 80% of the bears look under 40.

I would say at least half who go to the games are over 40 now.

I was in the away end with thousands of other bears that day near the fence where the segregation was.

Was a feature of the away games under souness where even the away ends had more bears than home fans

countless games the police moved us round to the "right" end :D

Great memories.

The "sway" in that terracing was something else.

Wish some of the younger bears could have experienced the terracing atmosphere back then. Its what made me fall in love with Rangers and football.

Aye, loved going to Tannadice with a Sandeman Street ticket in the sky rocket. Good atmo in there, fuelled by several sherries in Ferraris bar.

Its probably the same bears. Not enough young guns attending nowadays.

Its like a generation of supporters missing. I blame the season ticket culture nowadays. We had 10 young guys on our bus who chucked going regularly when they were to be charged the full season ticket price, they just couldnt afford it. Once they miss a few games, not going becomes the same habit as going.:(

Agree strongly with this. Season tickets are strangling the life out of our support.

Back then a good 80%, i'd say, were guys who went with their mates or guys from their area.

How can, a crowd of young boys at school today say that they will meet up and go over to Ibrox on a given Saturday and they will be all sitting together
having a good laugh and a sing song.

A whole generation has been robbed of this and i would hope whoever takes over at Ibrox has some sort of plan to generate interest again in our youngsters and how to get them back into Ibrox and sitting together.

This day really brings back bitter-sweet memeories for me.

It was my 21st birthday.

The Bears win the league and its party-time.

My mate who was at Tannadice with me found out on returning home that his Mother had hung herself.

A day I will never forget.

Was in the united end also, only a kid, Rangers scored but the goal got chopped off, got a row and told to shut it by my old boy, minutes later Trevor Stevens header, I remained still an the old man jumped!!! Remember the old running out top, that was 2 in a row. We win leagues at tannadice.

Great day, great atmosphere. Hard to believe it's more than 20 years ago. I was right behind the goal where Steven scored and can still remember it going in and the place erupting.

Cracking photos that bring back a lot of nice memories.

Happy memories, i was in the away end initially, but got thrown out when they asked me to unzip my jacket where upon they saw the Rangers top. I ended up getting in the home end when they opened the gates with a few minutes left. Missed all of the game but saw the celebrations!

Terry Butcher's sparkly top hat from that day ended up in a display case in Simon's in Renfrew. Big Jack (who owned the boozer) bought it in a charity auction.

Better ways to spend the cash than sitting freezing in some dull SPL stadium.

I was there too. Great days for football,fair pricing, excitement,decent fitba, a smoke, a drink,a sing song and sway. All gone!

Crowd of us were in the home end that day......on entry to the ground with colours hidden some of the local polis were asking guys with no colours questions. If the accent was Glasgow there were being escorted out the ground. Anyway the Dundee Hibs were seen in a true light that day and judging by the amount of Bears in the home section at the end of the game I'm surprised it never kicked off big time. Walters was called for everything throughout and during one particularly viscious rant from and old guy in his 60's I looked at a young cop who was patrolling the stair next to me.....he just shook his head and done nothing.
Anway, as the game ticked to its conclusion the home fans startted disappearing and the bears in the home end produced the colours and the singing started. The 'ol boy got some verbals and had the cheek to ask the same cop to get us to **** out their end. The cop done nothing winked at me and said he suspected we were Rangers fans but done nothing......as he was one himself......great day was had by all and topped of on the way home where a restaurant on the Dundee to Perth Road had a manequin of a chef out front decked out in a Rangers scarf and hat.
Hard to believe it's 20+ years ago!!

It was bedlam behind the goals that day. I was right in line with Trevor Steven's header that day and it was in the moment it left his head.

I think I can see myself in both the photos behind the goal.

I had a ticket for the utd end that day and didn't get in, there was a few bears in front of us at the turnstile and the cop ask one of them if he knew the current utd goalie was, he said Hamish Mcalpine,it wasn't him he had left utd a few seasons before....:(

I used to enjoy going to Tannadice back then, those pictures show quite clearly some major ingredients our game is badly missing... terracings, larger turnouts, decent kick off times and a fervour and passion for the game that nowadays is not quite the same as back then.

THESE aspects of our game were assets in Scottish football but things gradually started to go along the lines of trying to be like our neighbours down south and we shouldn't have done that.

Will there be an effort to try and recapture some of that old time magic? NO! It's all about TV money, control and ignoring what football fans want so we'll just have to watch as the game goes into terminal decline and the whole thing eventually collapses.
