The Blue Order and Union Bears factions will not renew season tickets

The Blue Order and Union Bears singing sections are situated in the Broomloan Front at Ibrox but both have confirmed they will refuse to hand over cash for season books as tensions between the terraces and boardroom continue to escalate.

The Rangers Union of Fans this week launched their website to allow supporters to pool cash before only being given to the club once security over Ibrox and Murray Park has been handed over to the Light Blue legions.

The plan has been given the backing of former director Dave King and nine-in-a-row legend Richard Gough, with Ibrox chiefs admitting in recent days that sales have been slow as fans turn up the head on the Gers hierarchy.

A statement said: "The Blue Order is confirming that we are reluctantly not renewing our season tickets for the 2014/15 season.

"It is, however, our intention to buy tickets for home and away games on a match-by-match basis so that we can continue to give our full support to our team."

A UB statement said: "It has been a painful sacrifice, but we hope it is an effective one.

"We believe we can't continue to put our hard earned money into a club suffering from mismanagement in all areas.

"We find it very hard to renew with all the uncertainty surrounding the club and don't believe that throwing cash into a financial black hole is the answer."
