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.”
