Celtic fans have been asked to arrive at Ibrox more than 90 minutes before kick-off on Sunday.

Neil Lennon’s men will aim to take a huge step towards nine in-a-row by winning at the home of our rivals, as we aim to avenge our bruising December defeat.

The lucky contingent of around 800 Celtic supporters (Scottish Sun) will have to put some special arrangements into place to get into the match, amid ticket cordons and cut-off times.

Celtic SLO John Paul Taylor tweeted the important supporters information on Tuesday evening.

He informed fans that they should be in the Broomloan Car Park prior to its gates opening at 10:30 – a full hour and a half before kick-off.

Taylor also said that cordons would be in place, while a reply to a fan query revealed that Hoops fans wouldn’t be held in the stadium at full-time.

All the Ibrox struggles would be worth it for a Celtic win

Given the hefty price, the struggle to even get a brief, and then all the instructions to follow on the day, you wonder why many fans even bother with Ibrox.

But then again, that feeling when Jonny Hayes netted the second goal clincher back in September probably made it all worthwhile.

Celtic fans around the globe would have celebrated that goal euphorically but none more so than the actual Hoops supporters in the ground.

It must be pretty special to be in that corner of the ground, going berserk as the rest of the stadium sits in silence.

Hopefully this weekend will see similar scenes as Lennon’s men take a giant step towards another title.

The Celtic fans going will do their best to make some noise. If the players do their job then they’ll be heard loud and proud at full-time.
