    I remember I once went through to Greyskull in the early 80s on a supporters bus for the second leg of a league cup game (I think). We were parked up a fair walk from the stadium and had to get through hordes of these vile trolls. They were all making snide comments, kicking our ankles, trying to provoke a reaction to make us look to be aggressors. I think we lost on the night, but went through on aggregate. When most of us got back to the bus, it wouldn't start and we were surrounded. We got it going eventually, but it was one of the scariest experiences of my life. They were even waiting for us on the motorway bridges to pelt the bus. Never been so glad to get back to Edinburgh.

    Happens every time mate. The minute elements of The Rangers support are exposed and rightly criticised thereís posters on here bleating Ďah but thereís also others who almost as bad.. what about ..... ???í

    So instead of jumping to the Hunsí defence why donít they just start threads when other teams fans do something thatís Ďjust as badí ... ?

    We all have our zoomers to contend with but The Rangers are by far the absolute worse.
    Who's jumping to the Huns defence?

    People are merely pointing out that Celtic are the Yang to the Huns Yin.

    That was the one nil loss to a Davy Cooper free kick but went thru to 85 league cup final on aggregate.
    Rememberleaving the bottom tier of the Broomloan road stand, we had both lower and top and they were mixing in with us, saw a lad slashed across the cheek, it was gruesome, they are vile fans and that will never change

    I went to the game at Mordor the night after McLeish went there. The game Paco Luna scored first for us in a one all draw. The bus, can't mind what one dropped us off about a ten minute walk from the ground. Was the worst walk of my life, wasn't hit but verbally abused and threatened.

    We had a part of a paving slab through the bus skylight from one of these bridges, could have killed someone

    Some people more so than others. Which is ironic given the thread is about the Hun

    In the interests of balance, I would point out that the Hun haven't had it all their own way. I recall some tangles late70's- early 80's in Easter Road and they weren't dishing it out.

    FAO sadtom - that's quite a host of stories that demonstrate just how despicable some of these people are. Attacking kids ffs? Fortunately I think this has started to die out.
    Yes. (also to Nae Nookie) I would imagine that it could still occasionally happen but would be extremely isolated incidents. Nowt like it was. Thankfully.

    I went to Holy Cross too but I was more scared of Mrs. McLeod's belt than any daft orangemen waiting at the bus stop to get me.
    The orange hate was a breeze compared to that sadistic old trout. I once got 4 of the best just for dropping my pencil.
    I was 8

    Cant remember the name. But do remember one nasty auld bisom. May have been her, but she retired when i was P 3or4.
    But before she left i still had one run in with her. She made 3 of us put our hand face down on the table, then tucked our fingers under. Like a fist but not clenched, then she banged down on top of our knuckles. It was f****** agony. Could easily have broken bones or caused damage. This was for talking and mucking around at the dinner table!!! Incredible that these people were allowed to do that to kids.

    Strangely i always remember that game as one of the easiest ever, especially during the 80's, at Ipox. Around 8/9k Hibbies there and for once they didn't want to know outside. Bog standard league games in the 3/4 years previously, when we struggled to take 3/400 through were terrifying in comparison.
