Celtic confirm Glasgow derby ticket details after being handed tiny allocation
Celtic have announced the ticket details for our next Scottish Premiership game, a trip to Ibrox to face Rangers.
Ibrox suits announced an allocation of just 700 away fans at Ibrox for the April 3rd meeting, a Glasgow Derby with potentially huge title ramifications.
If Celtic win, it’s a 6-point gap. A lose or a draw, and we’ll still be top of the table. Ceding momentum to Rangers, however, is unthinkable at this stage, and Ange Postecoglou’s Bhoys will want to build on a 3-0 hammering at Celtic Park in February.
The Celtic FC Tickets account announced that tickets would be available to those who were offered a spot at the cancelled 15th March 2020 game. The 19-20 season was, of course, cut short due to Covid-19’s rampant impact, and subsequent lockdown measures.
What’s more, Celtic fans who are eligible will have to cough up £52, with a 2pm deadline on the 28th March [Celtic FC Tickets].
Celtic used to enjoy an allocation of 7,000 for games at Ibrox. However, being repeatedly rinsed through the late 2010s led Ibrox suits to change tack, starting a tiresome back-and-forth over ticket allocations on either side of the Clyde.
Celtic will at least have fans at Ibrox for Rangers clash
Whatever the case, however small the allocation may be, or whether there’s discontent over the eligibility rules, it’ll be good to have supporters there.
Of course, many Celtic supporters preferred the atmosphere at Paradise in February, when no Rangers supporters were in the stadium.
It’ll be difficult to convince many that any of our rivals’ supporters should be invited back, given the incredible atmosphere.
Still, Celtic have been given a major boost from the supporters this season, no doubt. And though only 700 Celtic fans will be at Ibrox, the noise they can generate will still be an advantage.
It’s better than nothing; precisely 700% better than nothing.
We’re sure those eligible will need no convincing to snap up tickets before the deadline. It’s going to be a huge game, one that could really hand Celtic the impetus to win a league title.
