To a certain extent I agree with you but that is because of the SPL set up with only 12 teams and the play-off format plus the chance of meeting in the Scottish and League Cups. Add to that the demise of Rangers in recent seasons as that all had a negative effect and understandably so.
Putting these things aside I feel the fixture will be further devalued if the away support is not allowed to reclaim a larger piece of the ticket allocation. For the first time in history the Rangers' board (under their Chairman Dave King) vastly reduced the away support. Celtic only received 800 tickets and IMO this should not have been allowed to happen. Celtic will respond (rightly or wrongly) with a similar approach for the next fixture at Celtic Park.
Both clubs could fill each of their respective stadiums outright for these clashes but this lacks respect and sporting integrity. Half the battle and the thrill is to stick it to the opposing fans on the day and I believe this decision tarnishes the fixture. Hopefully common sense will prevail but can't see any dialogue until after the next game so it is played out in an even fashion.

Glad to see the good guys get the win.



If ever there was a 'Mickey Mouse' competition, it has to be the Scottish 'Premier' League since Rangers went bust and were relegated.
It was a one-club league for the time between.

And Sutton wouldn't know anything about quality, even if it hit him on the head, which was about the only way he ever scored. :lol: :P



Wrong. They were liquidated and the new club commenced in the fourth tier.

If they were liquidated, why did they pay the debts of the "old" club?

Did celtic become a new club when they changed the ownership name in 1994?

Why does the SFA, UEFA etc.. all consider them to be the same club?

How does it feel knowing you're still not close to their number of titles?

Ok, I'll bite.

You are comparing an ownership name change with liquidation? Check the Company records and get back to me with the date of incorporation of Celtic FC and Rangers FC or are just happy to go along with the myth that they are the same club and were "demoted" and not relegated. Either way....... tic toc......Liquidation II is coming again soon for the deluded Sevconians.
