Celtic were told unceremoniously they would not be getting the usual 8,000 for away days at Ibrox earlier this year.
The Ibrox board put it down to ‘demand’ and would just be giving the standard allocation of just 800 going forward.
We’re not buying that AT ALL.
In games down the years, whether it be now or with the old club which entered administration then liquidation – there is always been a high demand for tickets from the home support.
But for years Celtic and whatever club emanates from Ibrox have given substantial tickets to their Glasgow rivals.
So what’s really changed? After all, a club that needs every penny they get would more than likely be charging Celtic fans more than their own fans for the briefs.
It comes down to one thing in our eyes, and one thing only.
They simply cannot take it!
Celtic’s last four visits to Ibrox since the new club came through the ranks of Scottish football reads like so.
12 Celtic goals to just 4 from the home team. It makes for depressing reading if you support the Ibrox side.
That’s four times in a row Celtic fans have been having an absolute party taking over one whole stand in Govan. Partying with the players at the end of the game and with Leigh Griffiths tying scarves to posts they even introduced stewards to make sure we could not do this.
Our social media team put it very nicely, in 10, 20, 30 years time if your child should ask you why Celtic ticket allocation was cut, simply show them this.
Dad, why did The Rangers cut Celtic’s allocation back in 2018?…. pic.twitter.com/gykf075WSI
