Despite reducing Celtic’s derby day ticket allocation by 6,200 the club from Ibrox have found themselves short of tickets for Saturday’s Glasgow derby.

Accountancy has never been a strong point with more tickets promised than available meaning that some sponsors, special guests and former players may miss out on the action.

Less than 48 hours before kick off the club SLO was forced to go onto twitter with the age old cry of ‘any spares?’

For the previous four fixtures against Celtic 7,000 Broomloan Road seats were made available to the good guys but opted to alter that during the summer in a bid to increase season ticket sales. It’s understood that any extra 2,000 season tickets were sold bringing in around £800,000 which is similar to the income from two visits by Celtic fans.

A number of changes have been made in the commercial and hospitality departments at Ibrox with tickets sold that aren’t actually available.

Unless some season ticket holders opt to sell their tickets it looks like some fat cats will be due an apology, refund and tickets for January’s glamour friendly with HJK Helsinki.
