SCOTT BAIN has made a very honest admission about his opponents for Sunday and their fans ahead of their crunch tie at Celtic Park.
Bain who has been Celtic’s number one goalkeeper since the turn of the year will be in between the sticks when the Ibrox club come to town in a match where there’s a lot on the line and so many subplots.
Bain is looking forward to having 60,000 fans backing him and his Celtic team-mates come kick off on the 31st but he did make the honest admission about the fan allocation debacle and how it has taken away from the atmosphere a little.
“We’ll have the vast majority of the fans and we have to use that atmosphere to our advantage.” Bain told SunSport.
“If anything, though, I like it when there are more away supporters in. It creates more of an O** F*** derby feeling.
“But this is what it is, just as it was at Ibrox last time, so we’ll enjoy the backing of our fans and hopefully get the win.”
The Ibrox board cut Celtic’s allocation by 90% in an act of pure petulance when they could no longer stand the sight of so many Celtic fans in the Broomloan road section. Celtic’s success in this fixture since the Ibrox club first got promoted to the SPFL has been quite significant and while they won’t admit that’s why they cut the allocation, we all know the truth.
Celtic has no choice to do the same after the petty act.
