Celtic have responded to criticism that today’s Scottish Cup tie with Morton should have been postponed due to weather conditions.

Some fans have been very vocal highlighting how roads are effected and public transport reduced at a time when around 30,000 are expected to turn out for a football match.

Long distance fans are aware in advance that they can encounter travel problems with many flights in and out of Glasgow Airport cancelled, the M74 restricted and train services reduced on the west coast mainline.

Yesterday Morton chief executive Warren Hawke sent out an emotional statement about fans putting life and limb at risk but most supporters are well used to the occasional inconvenience involved in supporting their club.

With today’s match being shown live on Sky Sports Morton will have around £80,000 from the broadcaster and a half share in the gate money to compensate those fans who were unwilling to risk life and limb.
