HOLDERS Celtic have received a small batch of extra tickets for the Betfred League Cup Final against Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox side on December 8.

The Hoops go into the Hampden confrontation as they bid to win a TENTH successive domestic honour.

The silverware showdown between the Glasgow sides is expected to be a sell-out, but an extra allocation will be balloted among select Celtic fans.

Supporters who were eligible in the original sale, but did not strike gold may get a second chance, provided they are on the club’s tickets scheme, purchased briefs for previous rounds against Dunfermline, Partick Thistle and Hibs and, of course, are chosen through the ballot.

Lucky punters have until 3pm on Saturday, November 23 to secure their place at the national stadium for next month’s fixture.

However, the club concede the extra allocation will still be unable to meet the incredible demand with not enough places to satisfy all eligible fans.

A statement on the club website read: “Unfortunately, we still do not have a sufficient allocation to offer all season ticket holders who meet this criteria a ticket for this match, and we appreciate the disappointment this may cause.

“We fully understand that the allocation of tickets we have been given will not be able to satisfy the demand from supporters wishing to attend the match.

“We also fully accept that many supporters will be disappointed.

“However, we would ask fans to understand and appreciate that this is a difficult process for the club to administer, given the ticket allocation provided.”
