CELTIC have potentially upset 800 fans by letting them know they will NOT be in the ballot for the Ibrox tickets because they were successful last time around.
“Please note, STH who meet the criteria and who were successful for match v. Rangers on 29th December are not included in the ballot. We do not have a sufficient allocation to offer all STH who meet this criteria a ticket for this match.” was the message on the official website.
The 800 fans who were in attendance to watch Mikey Johnstone start up front as a lone striker while Callum McGregor played left back at the end of 2018 were left outraged by the decision.
The club’s thought obviously being they have had their turn at Ibrox and it allows other people high up on the away days list to get into the game. But some believe the move is unfair.

Celtic used to take 7000 fans to Ibrox on a regular basis but Dave King cut it to the bare minimum with Celtic fans partying in the away section too much for their liking (allegedly).
The final Glasgow Derby of the season takes place next month with Neil Lennon taking his Celtic team to Ibrox. Hopefully the Irishman can get a better result than Brendan Rodgers did in the winter.
