A week after Celtic tweeted that they weren’t ‘half of anything’ the club from Ibrox are tweeting about the Old Firm.
Preserving the Old Firm while officially denying it has been the cunning plan of Peter Lawwell over the last decade with the soon to retire CEO claiming that he had never viewed the Five Way Agreement of 2012.
Once the new club from Ibrox reached the top flight in 2016 Celtic launched a two-tier Season Ticket scheme with one excluding tickets for the Glasgow Derby which were then sold at a premium. Celtic allocated 7,000 tickets to fans of the club formed by Charles Green.

Celtic play their home matches at Celtic Park.
While the Old Firm has been the cornerstone of whatever plan Celtic have followed over the Lawwell Years the events of George Square occasionally make the relationship a little uncomfortable.
Since the law-breaking at George Square last Sunday Celtic have been involved in ‘multi-agency’ talks and required to put out a steady stream of messages asking fans to stay away from Sunday’s match.
