St Johnstone recently announced the ticket details for the upcoming Scottish Cup quarter-final against Celtic on the 1st of March at McDiarmid Park.

Hoops supporters will be getting three stands of the stadium, with the Perth side limited to just one. The decision is similar to the trial the Saints are having for home league games against both Celtic and Rangers.

Decision will be welcomed by Hoops fans

The news will be welcomed by Celtic fans, as it will almost be like a home game for the Hoops, as the stadium will be full of green and white scarves.

When the teams met in the league a few weeks ago, the Hoops cruised to a 3-0 win, which could have been inspired by the fact that the stadium was full of Celtic fans.

Now the situation is going to repeat itself, as the Celtic support is going to take over McDiarmid Park for the second time this year.

However, whilst Celtic fans are probably happy with the ticket decision, it seems that some St Johnstone fans are not.

“Ridiculous”

Some took to social media to complain about the situation. One fan described the decision as ‘poor’, whilst another classified the decision as ‘ridiculous’.

It will be interesting to see if St Johnstone decide to continue with this approach to games against Celtic and Rangers next season.

If the responses from fans are as annoyed as the ones on Twitter, then they may decide to end the trial run.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to the news that Celtic fans will once again take over McDiarmid Park:
