I wonder who decided on the Murryfield match

It's the same company who set up the Man Utd v Lyon match last Summer.  Police Scotland and the City Of Edinburgh Council will have been consulted. 

 

There might be a couple of scraps but nothing major.

Had a wee scout around and looks like I've got some Rangers tickets for Berlin.

Enjoy it mate, Union seem like a brilliant fanbase and I love their story.

They sound like St Pauli lite, to me.

Speak for yourself mate, speak for yourself.

 

BTW, this is one of the ultimate East German clubs, and they want to have f@ck all to do with pseudo-anarcho creeps like St. Pauli. Other teams have a "Ultra" stand with the hardcore fans, sort of "Kop" at Anfield. Since the ground is not that big, the whole Alte Försterei is effectively a "Kop" ... the real "Ultras" are housed in the "Waldseite" stand, which can be seen on the right side in this video. The hymn of Union starts at roughly 2,10 mins in ...

Named after the hill, Spion Kop, in South Africa (due to soldiers having returned from the Boer War).    

 

Other clubs with 'Kop' stands are Blackpool, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End and Birmingham City, which ties in nicely with our friendly at St Andrews, the Wednesday before we visit Berlin.
