    It only seems like there's more huns than us because if a hun says his mum, sister, gran and aunt are all hun supporters when in reality they are all the same person.

    I'd say more huns if I'm honest, they just tend to hide, embarrassed to wear the top I guess , embarrassed by their team

    Probably more huns it's just most of them won't admit it anymore, when sounness was there the * were coming out the woodwork/sewers with hun tops, now they can’t get shops to sell the scabby tops that haven't even been released yet

    The general feel I get whenever I'm up is that we're everywhere. No just tops but boozers and just how it feels..

    Of course we're flying and they are in hiding half the time now so that will have a bearing..

    I do believe they've lost youngsters and a lot of casual fan's. Where we've gained many and even some casuals that will of swapped..

    You see it on online these concerns they've voiced constantly..

    From somebody who doesn't live there and really only gets over once or twice a year- went round quite a few places last time I stayed in Glasgow (November) and in every bar/club we went to (not including the obvious ones around the ground), there were Celtic/Green Brigade stickers and posters all over the place, didn't spot any sevco stuff like it anywhere.

    I would say we definitely outnumber them in Glasgow, probably by a decent bit like 55-45.

    I'd say there's more Huns in Glasgow but think more people favour Celtic worldwide because they are odious * and we're not

    Their collapse and our dominance will show up in a few years time.

    A lot of people have stayed loyal to the new club, but they aren't exactly gaining many new fans. Even the loyal supporters are properly * off with all the *.

    Aye, we'll pull further ahead but i'd bet we already outnumber them by a good %.

    There are more Catholics in Glasgow than there are other Christians combined and i'd guess for every 1 Catholic hun theres probably about 3/4 Protestant tims.

    When I think of pubs as well, theres more pubs I know about that are associated to Celtic fans than there are hun pubs, like Celtic pubs outnumber their pubs by a good distance all over the place although they do have Orange and Masonic lodges which might be how it seems like that.

    I think it's really difficult to gauge just now. Since 2012 and the creation of Sevco, the huns have had nothing to celebrate or any real achievement to speak of for a long time. When the original Rangers were still operating it was much different. It is noticeable how many of them would be out and about with the strip on in town on a random day other than match days compared to now.

    Considering the success we've been having the last 6 years, it's only natural we're more noticeable in terms of being out and about pretty much partying every weekend. Theres also been a sharp rise in Irish bars opening in that time as well in Glasgow which I imagine a lot of us will spend a lot of time socialising in which adds further weight to the perception that there is more of us than them now.

    We're also approaching July which is always an indicator of how many of these mutants are still cutting about. Although I think the numbers attending orange walks and these types of things are in decline.

    Personally, I can see why it seems like there's more of us than them at this time but it would be very interesting to see the results of a consensus style survey and see how the numbers really compare. Wouldn't surprise me if it's much more 50/50 to be honest or even still slightly more of them.

    It will probably take for them to have some kind of decent success like winning a cup before we see any real sign of them coming out the woodwork again which will give us a better idea what the answer to the question is. With regards to that then we could certainly be waiting a while!

    Glasgow has more celts but a lot of the shires surrounding are orange.

    IMO south Lanarkshire is 50/50 (places like lark hall cancel out Blantyre etc).

    North Lanarkshire more of us I’d say (bellshill Coatbridge Carfin etc).

    Ayrshire is a Hun ridden shitehole.

    I’m sure further east is bad too. There’s a place on the back roads to Edinburgh that runs parallel to the M8 that has red hands and union jacks everywhere. Cannae mind the name of the dump.

    Scotland, and the rest of the world, we defo enjoy a bigger support.

    I was in Glasgow for the first time in 2011. It was an international break with no games and just before they going bankrupt.

    Most people I talked to were Rangers fans, but I failed to see a single Rangers jersey in the streets in 4 days, while seeing plenty of Celtic ones, with both men, women, young and old people wearing. Mind you I never came out of the city center in that time

    I assume Sevco would have more fans but when you discount people that don't care that much about football the balance overturns to Celtic. Since then, all the times I returned to Glasgow Celtic was more visible than the scum, but now there is a good reason for that.

    Bar Denmark, because of the Laudrups and Northern Ireland for obvious reasons, I have never seen anyone outside of Britain have a sympathy or interest for Rangers while wearing a Celtic jersey is an instant success.

    Don't know if you're referring to Harthill but that is another hun infested swamp out that direction as well.

    As much as I loathe Rangers, their following to Manchester 10yrs ago was outstanding.

    I’m sure we would have had a similar following aswell though.

    I would say the majority of English based football fans would prefer Rangers over Celtic, namely due to our affiliations with Ireland and the false impressions they have of us all being members or sympathisers with the IRA.

    With a completely unbiased mind, I Couldn’t be 100% sure that Celtic are bigger than Rangers personally. Probably very very similar within a few % points.

    Not Glasgow, but while they were in the lower divisions I saw about one hun top a year which was quite striking considering I know for sure they fair outnumber us here. Lot of them came out the woodwork but still seems like their support has dipped since I was younger.

    I work in what was one a bastion of protetant sash bashers (the huns once used this place to hide from fighting a war like everyone else), Not even 20 years ago you would have never got a job in the place if you were a tim or catholic but now its completely swung to the tims side. I think the celtic fans outnumber the rangers fan by about 2-1.

    Funnily enough there were a few guys that had invested heavily in rangers before 2012 , one of them had over £100k in shares and he is due back about £600 as a creditor. HE doesnt talk about rangers anymore but he still has a picture of the queen above is desk :celtman2:

    They must have lost so many supporters after going bust, Celtic's fanbase might be bigger than theirs across Scotland now
