There is no threat of Sunday’s Glasgow derby being played behind closed doors according to a report in The Sun.

Last night Juventus played Inter Milan in an empty stadium with tomorrow’s Champions League tie between Paris Saint Germain and Borussia Dortmund going on in the same circumstances.

Six Nations rugby matches between Italy v England and France v Ireland this weekend have been postponed with the UK so far unaffected.

The Government in London are monitoring the spread of Coronavirus on an hourly basis but there are no plans for Sunday’s match to be played at an empty Ibrox.

The Sun reports:

Sports chiefs and broadcasters met with the government at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport in London for crisis talks today.

There’s a growing expectation within the English Premier League that matches may have to be played without fans in the coming weeks.

But SunSport understands there are no immediate plans to shutout supporters at any Scottish football matches.

Less than 800 Celtic fans have tickets for Sunday’s match with Neil Lennon’s side travelling across the city with a 13 point lead.

Avoiding defeat will keep Celtic in the driving seat with seven matches left to play including a home match against the Ibrox side.
