Celtic yesterday confirmed in a statement that, in response to a decision taken earlier by Rangers, they would be cutting the Ibrox club’s away allocation when the two sides meet on September 2nd.

Just 800 away fans will be in attendance for the derby match, matching a similar policy devised by decision makers at Ibrox to ensure there will be no more incredible celebrations in the Broomloan Road end at their ground.

Their explanation is that the appointment of Steven Gerrard has created extra demand.

The whole thing could be described as a shambles, but the Hoops had other option but to respond with these measures, and the action has been warmly greeted by the majority of supporters.

Celtic fans are laying blame for the whole mess squarely at Rangers’ door, and quite rightly so, slaughtering the Govan outfit on Twitter in reaction to the news from the Bhoys.

Some call them cowards, some are just laughing at them, but most are in agreement that they’ve shown themselves up big time.

These supporters had plenty to say…

Are you happy that Rangers have had their allocation at Celtic Park reduced? Let us know in the comments…
