Celtic fans have generally reacted favourably to news that the club will accept tickets for the Glasgow derby on December 29.

With just over two weeks to go until the Ibrox clash Celtic have announced that they will be accepting their allocation of 750 tickets despite expressing safety concerns.

Supporters are expected to meet up at Celtic Park on the morning of the match and be bussed to and from the stadium.

Inside the stadium, at the corner between the Govan and Broomloan Road stands extra security measures are expected to be in place with a large number of seats given over to segregation.

An equal concern will be travel to and from the stadium with Police Scotland expected to provide the same level of security that they put in place for the September 2 match at Celtic Park.

Closing off Broomloan Road from the roundabout with Edmiston Drive would seem to be an obvious solution to provide the Celtic buses with a stopping point close to their part of the stadium and cleared of home fans.

Half of Celtic’s ticket allocation is likely to go to sponsors leaving season ticket holders with an allocation of just over 300 tickets.
