Celtic have slashed the ticket allocation given to Sevco for the March 12 derby match.

On the club website hoops season ticket holders can buy up tickets for areas 115-118 of the Lisbon Lions Lower Stand and areas 416-419 of the Lisbon Lions Upper Stand.

Those areas are the additional seating Celtic provided in August only to find that toilets were trashed with the tribute act refusing to pay for the damage caused by their season ticket holders.

After months of correspondence Celtic deducted the cost of the damage from the cheque they sent to Ibrox for tickets to the December 31 clash at Ibrox.

Big hearted hoops fans left scented candles in the Ibrox lavvies as a peace gesture while their team outplayed the magic hat again.

Sevco apologists claimed that Celtic fans damaged Ibrox but no evidence was provided or complaint made to the the SPFL about the ticket shortfall.

The SPFL have no rules for away fan allocations other than a reasonable number.

In 1994 Dave Murray banned Celtic fans from Ibrox but one of the poorest Celtic sides in the last 50 years managed to draw with Walter Smith’s men.
