Monday’s Glasgow derby at , kick off 2pm, will be played behind closed doors.

Celtic go into the match with a three point lead over the Ibrox side at the top of the table with three matches left to play.

Trouble at a Glasgow Cup Final in 2013 scared both clubs away from making these matches open to anyone but it does seem drastic that each player can’t be given a couple of tickets to allow their parents to see a vital match.

It’s believed that a video link has been offered but that isn’t much of a substitute to parents who have been driving up and down the country for years as they watched their son’s develop through the ranks

In contrast to the first team just three points covers the top four teams in the 17 match league programme.

Celtic have taken 16 points out of 18 since the turn of the year with the side almost solely made up of players eligible to play at u-19 level.

The two clubs will also meet in the final of the Glasgow Cup (u-20) and SFA Youth Cup (u-18) before the season ends.

UPDATE: A limited number of tickets have now been made available to parents of players involved. The match will kick off at noon on Monday.
