Celtic are expected to be given 2,000 tickets for Artur Boruc’s farewell match in his homeland [Scottish Sun]. 

The former Hoops goalkeeper announced his retirement from the game at the end of last season and will see his current and former side take on each other in his final match.

Legia’s large ticket allocation offered to Celtic comes days after the game sparked controversy due to the pricing of tickets.

The price has been set at the same level as Europa League group stages matches last season after a disappointing season which seen the Polish side finish 10th in the Ekstraklasa.

Sales haven’t been steady at all in the wake of these ticket prices with Legia having reportedly only shifted 3,000 tickets to there stadium which holds over 30,000 spectators.

Boruc weighed in on the argument and insisted that is was completely up to Legia supporters whether they decided to go along to the game or not.

Celtic last visited the Stadion Wojska Polskiego in 2014 during the controversial Champions League qualifier which saw Legia Warsaw get booted out the tournament after fielding a player who wasn’t registered to play.

It’s not expected that the Hoops will take over too large a support with 135 fans making the journey the last time.

It is disappointing that Legia have handled this so badly when the game really should be a celebration of a top quality goalkeeper.
