CELTIC have hinted they will cut away support allocations at Parkhead on the back of Rangers revealing more home tickets at Ibrox will be made available for their own support.

A statement from the Govan board earlier this evening said visiting fans to their ground would no longer be housed in the Broomloan Stand, something which generally only happens at Old Firm matches.

It said: "Our supporters will always come first and as many of them as practically possible must be accommodated. That is why the Club has decided on an overall increase in the total number of season tickets available to our supporters to what will be a historical record. A further announcement on the final new ticket allocation will shortly be made available on the Club’s website.

"An unfortunate consequence of putting our supporters first is that this increased demand negatively impacts on the number of tickets which will be allocated to visiting teams. This means all visiting fans will now be situated in the corner between the Broomloan and Sandy Jardine Stands.

"We believe that this is the best possible outcome after considering the unprecedented levels of support from Rangers fans."

In what appears to be a response to that stance, Celtic have released their own statement which appears to imply they will adopt a similar model of giving home fans more tickets.

It reads: "An unprecedented Double Treble and historic season for the Club has led to a phenomenal level of demand from supporters to be part of Celtic.

"We are happy to reciprocate in terms of ticket allocation, something which will give us the opportunity to meet this huge demand to visit Celtic Park."
