What's got Celtic fans laughing ahead of Premier Sports Cup Final

Do you remember the seemingly endless furore over Hibernian’s ticket allocation against Celtic for the Premier Sports Cup Final?

The Hibees were initially given a 17,500 allocation for Hampden against Celtic. It caused quite the uproar, with Hibs incandescent about the oversight [HFC].

Jack Ross isn’t even Hibs manager now, but two weeks ago he was less than happy. It caused a brilliant moment in an Ange Postecoglou press conference, being asked about the issue before facing Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.

Eventually, it was resolved, with Hibs receiving a booster allocation [HFC].

Alas, all that fuss and Hibernian still haven’t sold out their lot, though [Eticketing]. There are still plenty of seats left.

It’s quite a funny scenario, with Celtic fans being tasked with defending an SPFL ticketing policy. It was a bizarre week or so, with the Bhoys painted as the bad guys in this tedious debacle. In fairness, given the fuss made by Hibernian, you’d have thought a sell-out would’ve been a formality.

Hibs will arrive at Hampden with much uncertainty over who’ll be leading them out. Jack Ross was sacked after a poor run of 1 win in 9. That’s despite having led the Edinburgh side to a Premier Sports Cup Final, beating Rangers in the semi-final, too.

Whether Ange Postecoglou will be asked about the motivations of Hibs supporters at this time is unclear.

Celtic fans having a laugh at Hibs’ expense before Premier Sports Cup Final after ticketing furore

Clearly, this is an opportunity for both Celtic supporters and self-deprecating Hibs fans.

It’s pretty embarrassing for the Hibees, given the remarkable fuss that was made about ticket allocation. Obviously, Hoops fans on Twitter have been having a laugh at our SPFL foes’ woes.
