“Safety and security” is the reasoning behind the decision, with Celtic fans also locked out of Ibrox for the split game, the date of this fixture is not yet confirmed.

After recent violent incidents at derby matches, which resulted in medical treatment for Celtic staff and fans, both clubs, in consultation with the police, have come to the agreement.

After years of reduced allocations, it seems as if a signal decision has been made, and it will be interesting to see what happens going into next season. Both clubs are said to be in discussions to find a solution for the new season.

The last derby at Celtic Park, which had no fans, was the 3-0 thumping that took Ange Postecoglou’s Hoops to the top of the table for the first time under his leadership.


  1. Thank fk, what accademic thinking guy would give up about 2000 seats for away Hun fans.
    It only benefitted 800 guys to attend a non-logical ibrox game.
    Look at the cost savings never mind the ultimate safety.
    If I watch or hear these tv radio punter going on about atmospheres it will get under my skin.
    Let’s ban the fkn drummer, I sit with the telly sound on mute.
    This Drummer who is at every tv game must make our potentially shit game even more shitter.
    Let’s now get on with it and give the extra money to the needy

  2. The Drummer being witnessed by the whole of word football.
    Is he a wee dafty that gets egged on.
    Let’s grow wise in football

  3. I.ve been saying for years on this site that ALL hoops v Lazarus fc should be a hun free zone and if the 2012 tribute act do likewise I.ll also be happy to know No tim.s paying daft money to get showered in colin nish from the bronx brethren “”
