Outside the Old Firm the largest following is probably Aberdeen, regarding both home support and the numbers they take to away games.
I cant find average attendences for last season but i will look them out. But in order i would imagine it being something like:

Cheers for that. Where did you find them. Surprised that United was so high as we had a poor season and still managed to finish higher than the bnb's.

Beleive it or not this information is in today's Sunday Mail, although that's not where I got in from.
The SM reports the decrease in average attendance from the last season before the introduction of the SPL, only Celtic have an increase ( due to stadium redevelopment I think) Arabs had a decrease of 15.4% from 9,068, most clubs are around a 20% drop. That's a huge loss in revenue to the clubs and the Scottish game.
SPL to blame ?
Personally I would increase the amount of teams, the main reason to allow unpressured introduction of young Scottish players into the game. At present Celtic and Rangers vie for the league, everybody else fights being relegated.

Cheers again for that information. I don't know if the introduction of the SPL is to blame. The rising cost of going to watch football must have something to do with it and the fact that the league is not the most attractive.
