CELTIC have confirmed they will accept an allocation of 750 tickets for their GAME against Rangers at Ibrox on December 29.

Hoops chief executive Peter Lawwell revealed at the club’s AGM last month the champions were considering rejecting the drastically-reduced allocation for the match.

He cited safety fears for the travelling support after the Govan outfit cut their allocation from more than 6,000.

However, a club statement read: “Following the decision to reduce Celtic’s ticket allocation at Ibrox Stadium for our match on December 29, 2018, we can confirm that the 750 tickets received by Celtic will be distributed through the usual allocation process.

“All relevant information for this match regarding ticket distribution will be available shortly on www.celtifc.net.

“We would ask that supporters who are attending are fully aware of all matchday, safety and travel information which will be issued prior to the match.”

It will be the second time Brendan Rodgers has gone head to head with his former Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard who took over as Gers gaffer in the summer.

They clashed in the Premiership in the east end of Glasgow in September when the Hoops won 1-0 with a second-half strike from Olivier Ntcham.

The away supporters complained at Rodgers’ players doing a so-called “lap of honour” at full-time to which the Hoops replied they were merely doing what they do at the end of every game, win, lose or draw.
