Kilmarnock fans rage as chairman Johnston cuts Celtic ticket prices

Kilmarnock supporters were outraged after chairman Michael Johnston reduced ticket prices for Saturday's clash with Celtic - for away fans only!

Travelling Hoops supporters can snap up tickets to the Rugby Park meeting for £20 - £6 less than the Killie faithful - which has caused plenty of animosity.

Kilmarnock Supporters' Association chairman Sandy Armour told the Daily Record: "This defies belief. The fans are raging.

"I've never known a situation where a chairman has shown so much contempt for his own fans.

"If this isn't the actions of a desperate man then I don't know what is. I've no idea what he's thinking. Every action he seems to take damages the club and this is the biggest own goal yet.

"If you're a Kilmarnock fan swithering about whether to go then why would you when you know the away fans are treated better?

"I've never heard anything like this in my life before - it's absolute madness.

"The only thing I can think of is he's under pressure to get money in.

"For me, it's the last act of a desperate man. I heard the ticket sales from Celtic fans was poor so it's another case of trying to make a quick buck short term."
