Rangers Fans Won’t Like Kilmarnock’s Decision Ahead of Final Day Game

Rangers Fans Won’t Like Kilmarnock’s Decision Ahead of Final Day Game

Rangers fans definitely won’t like Kilmarnock’s decision to cut their allocation ahead of their final day game.

The teams finish their Scottish Premiership campaign at Rugby Park.

And it’s a particularly big day for the home side as they continue to celebrate their 150th anniversary.

With it being their final game of the season, the Killie board have taken the decision to house visiting Rangers fans in just one stand – rather than the usual three the Glasgow club get.

Per a statement on kilmarnockfc.co.uk, the club’s board said: “As we continue our 150th Anniversary celebrations, we want to turn our final match of the season on Sunday, May 19 at home to Rangers into a celebration of all things Killie.

“With this in mind, we as a Board of Directors have made the decision to house Rangers FC supporters solely in the Chadwick Stand with Kilmarnock supporters in the remaining three stands.”

That’s a controversial decision given Rangers supporters have regularly taken thousands to Rugby Park for games.

They’ve played there twice already this season, once in the league and once in the Scottish Cup.

But now considerably less will be inside Rugby Park for their final game of the season – usually a good occasion for fans of any club.
