Dave King Assures Rangers Fans There Will Be No U-Turn on Celtic Ticket Allocation

Dave King Assures Rangers Fans There Will Be No U-Turn on Celtic Ticket Allocation

Dave King has assured Rangers fans that there will be no u-turn on the Celtic ticket allocation at Ibrox.

The Govan club surprised many back in May when they announced that the ticket allocation for all away fans would be cut to just 800.

Traditionally, thousands of Celtic supporters have been housed in the Broomloan Stand at Ibrox during games between the Glasgow rivals.

But that’s a thing of the past, with just 800 set to sit between the Broomloan and Sandy Jardine Stand moving forward.

Celtic responded to that by slashing the Rangers allocation for the first game between the clubs at Parkhead earlier this season.

And at Celtic’s AGM last week, Peter Lawwell said that the club might not even take tickets for the game at Ibrox next month over fears for supporter safety.

Now the subject of the ticket allocation has been raised at the Rangers AGM, with one fan asking for an assurance that the decision won’t be reversed.

King, per dailyrecord.co.uk, said: “I can give you an absolute assurance the board has no intention of reversing that decision.”

That will be music to the ears of Rangers fans who are delighted to see more home supporters at games against Celtic.
