This weekend's tributes to the Queen Elizabeth II were always likely to be received differently around the various football grounds in the UK.

The majority of English clubs have seemed to pass through their moment's of silence without issue, although there have been some discerning comments made on a few occasions.

In Scotland, the matter is far more complex.

It is a nation where different groups hold very different beliefs as to the role of the British monarchy in their society. Because of this, there was always likely to be contrasting reactions from various sets of supporters.

Dundee United fans interrupt Queen tribute at Ibrox

Rangers fans were always going to go along with any tributes to the deceased monarch, having already paid their respects before their Champions League game against Napoli in midweek.

They did so again this afternoon, although the Dundee United fans weren't as keen to observe the minute's silence.

As the two sets of players stood around the centre circle and Ibrox fell silent, they broke out into a chant of 'Lizzie's in a box' in reference to Queen Elizabeth II's death. It went down exactly as well as you would expect among the home support.

There were than just a few fans joining in with the chant.

It was not the only ground to experience a similar incident, with Hibernian fans also breaking out in the chant prior to their game against Aberdeen.

Now apparently a common chant in Scotland, it first appeared a football ground in Ireland.

Shamrock Rovers condemned the actions of their supporters after they used the chant prior to their Europa Conference League game against Djurgarden last week.

It had been expected that such chants would be present in Scotland this weekend, with Sky Sports apparently set to lower the volume of microphones near Celtic supporters for their game at St Mirren tomorrow.
