Celtic have decided not to provide a convoy of buses to take fans to and from Ibrox on Saturday.

Peter Lawwell suggested the move at the club AGM as supporters voiced their safety concerns over the restricted ticket allocation.

A fortnight ago Celtic decided to accept an allocation of 750 tickets for the fixture after Dave King caved into Ibrox fans sickened by the regular sight of 7,000 away fans partying.

An area to the west of Broomloan Road has been set aside for Celtic cars and buses with the road closed off at 11am. After match details haven’t been published and are probably dependent on the result.

If the hoops rack up their fifth successive win it’s likely that the fans will stay around to milk the moment. Dispersing with a convoy of around 50 buses and cars onto the motorway after the match won’t be a straightforward operation regardless of the result.

It is not known if any additional security or segregation arrangements have been put in place for the final fixture of 2018.
