William Paterson, Rangers fan

Match: N/A

Published: 3/6/2013


Pittodrie is without doubt one of the worst grounds in Scotland when it comes to facilities for visiting wheelchair fans, complete lack of shelter, entirely open to the elements, no access at all to food and drink, although there is a Radar key operated toilet close by.

Once again appeals for a bit of common sense to prevail are met with a mixture of silence, derision and contempt and the occasional "Only doing my job". This season it's slightly worse than previous seasons because Aberdeen have decided to sell the tickets in the front two rows which they previously cordoned off which means the view of the bottom corner is completely obscured.
