This study is concerned with the bipartite tracking consensus problem for linear multi-agent system over signed digraph, in which the leader agent owns a bounded control input that is unavailable to the followers. Compared with existing related works, the communication topology under consideration is allowed to be directed. Two kinds of distributed control protocols are proposed based on the relative states of neighbouring agents. By applying the graph theory, Lyapunov theory and adaptive
