The Bouncy

The Bouncy or The Bouncy Bouncy is a sports celebration which involves jumping up and down on the spot while chanting the word "bouncy" or "Let's all do the bouncy" over and over again. It is mainly done by fans of Scottish Association football club Rangers, Australian club Brisbane Roar and the Northern Ireland national football team.

The Bouncy was first performed in 1989 as a terrace song. In 1994, the then Rangers head of security, Alistair Hood jokingly suggested that Ibrox Stadium should have seatbelts installed to stop fans doing The Bouncy. The action is considered a positive action as seen by the Rangers fans doing it in the City of Manchester Stadium in the 2008 UEFA Cup Final against Zenit St Petersburg.
