Celtic away allocation at Tannadice returns to normal levels after failed experiment

Celtic’s away allocation at Dundee United will return to regular numbers after it was cut for the last meeting between the sides at Tannadice.

On Celtic’s last trip to the City of Discovery, they took on Tam Courts’ side in the Scottish Cup quarter-final, running out 3-0 winners in March.

That experiment doesn’t appear to be one Dundee United are keen to continue with for the upcoming Scottish Premiership clash on May 11th after they released tickets for the home support this afternoon.

While away tickets are still to go on sale, Celtic fans will once again be sitting in the Jerry Kerr and Jim McLean stands whilst also returning to the West Stand behind the goal.

Over the past few seasons, Celtic’s away allocation has been cut at several different venues, with Tannadice becoming just the latest last month.

But, after United failed to fill out the stand in the quarter-final, it is a sensible call to hand the seats back to Celtic, who will, without a doubt, sell out the allocation.

The Hoops support might be enjoying a title party by then if all goes to plan for Ange Postecoglou’s side in their pursuit of the Premiership.

So, I am sure Ange and the players will be delighted to see the return of more travelling Celtic supporters.
