Stretford End Fans New Row over Glazer Protests

Trouble in the Stretford End
Police and stewards in the aisles in the Stretford End

A safety row has erupted at Manchester United over claims that the club ordered stewards to block Old Trafford exit aisles to stop anti-Glazer protests. Rebel supporters in the Stretford End have been unveiling banners in the final minutes of matches as they protest against the club's American owners. In response, stewards and police blocked exit aisles before the end of Saturday's game. Reds fans complained that the move puts them at risk and a complaint has been made to Trafford council, which issues the ground's safety licence. A spokesman for fans' group IMUSA said the club was 'playing a dangerous game' and breaching safety regulations. But the club insisted that the action protects fans safety and has the backing of the police.
