The Perth club are currently ninth in the Scottish Premiership table, but are just two points off the relegation playoff spot and have been mired in a fight for survival since the start of the season.
However, rather than trying to encourage as many home supporters as possible to their upcoming fixtures against the Old Firm, the Saints’ hierarchy have decided to try and cash-in on the Glasgow clubs’ loyal away fans:
McDiarmid Park’s capacity is just less than 11,000, and today’s decision means around 7,000 Celtic and Rangers fans will be packed inside the ground for their next visit – affectively turning the fixture into a home game.
We understand this is a decision purely driven by financial motivations – but what do you think of the move?
Could it permanently alienate a portion of the St Johnstone fanbase for good?
