Rangers supporters fuming after Celtic renege on ticket decision

Celtic officials have reportedly reneged on a deal to have just 1,000 tickets for the Old Firm derby with Rangers at Ibrox on March 25.

Celtic officials have reportedly reneged on a deal to have just 1,000 tickets for the Old Firm derby with Rangers at Ibrox on March 25.

Financially-stricken ‘Gers were set to receive an upfront payment of £3,000 for the tickets but the Hoops decided to go back on their word and will now be allocated the usual amount of around 7,300.

The decision has clearly been made to help ease their cash crisis but Rangers supporters are up in arms about the choice after Celtic forced the struggling ‘Gers to pay in full for their ticket distribution for the last derby in December.

“If the Celtic board want to persist with their juvenile antics we suggest Rangers solve the problem by refusing to handle tickets for Parkhead and reduce the allocation Celtic fans receive for the Ibrox fixture to the bare minimum allowed for under SPL rules,” read a statement from the Ranger Supporters Trust.

“Celtic are playing to the lowest common denominator in their support by demanding Rangers pay up front for tickets and yet refuse to do the same.”
