Report: Celtic given tiny ticket allocation for derby
Celtic have been given 700 tickets for the upcoming derby vs Rangers at Ibrox, The Herald has reported this evening.
The outlet say that the Bhoys have the briefs in their possession. However, Celtic have not yet indicated if these will go on sale or not.
Celtic have received a small allocation of Ibrox tickets before this season. However, they ended up not being used as Rangers were looking for new year derby guarantees despite an uncertain Covid-19 situation.
Obviously, we will have to see how this develops and what Celtic officially communicate. With just a couple of weeks until the encounter then it shouldn’t be too long, especially with this report surfacing.
Celtic used to enjoy a 7,000 allocation for derbies at Ibrox but Rangers pettily decided to slash that after repeated humiliations in the fixture.
An away crowd of 700 is relatively tiny, but any kind of support for the Bhoys at Ibrox will be welcome considering we went there with no support earlier in the campaign.
I’m sure a few hundred supporters would be able to generate their fair share of noise in the stadium, especially if Ange Postecoglou’s team play well.
Either way, Celtic have nothing to fear heading to Govan after thrashing Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team 3-0 the last time the two sides met.
