A “small fraction” of Dundee United fans did not observe a minute’s silence before kick-off in honor of the Queen, the club said.
Before the game against Rangers began, a number of Dundee United fans could be heard disrupting the tribute, with boos and chants heard from the corner of Ibrox Stadium, which housed several hundred away fans.
In a statement, the club confirmed that they were aware of the actions of a “small fraction” of the fans at the game.
It said: “Dundee United are aware of the actions of a small segment of the crowd who have chosen not to respect the minute’s silence before the game this afternoon at Ibrox.
“As a club, we reached out to our fans ahead of the game to update them on pre-match arrangements with the expectation that the minute’s silence would be observed.”
