Celtic’s next opponents in the Scottish Premiership St Mirren have confirmed that there will once again be no away fans in attendance at Parkhead next weekend.
The Buddies tweeted confirmation that due to the relocation of season ticket holders in the main stand, they would not be able to offer allocated seats for away supporters.

With several areas in the main stand being used as part of the red zone for the players/staff of both clubs, unfortunately, the club hasn’t been able to offer away tickets to visiting sides in the two games so far this season.
Yesterday, supporters saw our first glimpse of that in the SPFL with the return of full crowds.
Currently, the protocols in place do not allow for sections in the main stand to be used with the Coronavirus regulations.
At some stage in the next few weeks, clubs will be hoping that these rules can be altered slightly so that away supports can fully return.
