CELTIC’S ticket allocations for Glasgow derby clashes at Ibrox this season are set to remain the same as the previous campaign.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s Govan club will receive around 900 briefs for the Parkhead match on September 3, according to a report in the Scottish Sun.

A similar number of champions’ followers will be inside Ibrox when Ange Postecoglou’s men visit on January 2.

The same arrangement is expected for the final two Premiership clashes between the Glasgow clubs – in April and the post-split.

The Hoops hierarchy had been open to exploring a return to the traditional away allocation of 8,000 at both grounds, but there will be no change this time around.

DERBY DAZE…Anthony Ralston puts the pressure on James Tavernier and keeper Jon McLaughlin.

Postecoglou lost 1-0 in his derby debut in August last year when Filip Helander netted the only goal of the contest with a header from a right-wing corner-kick.

However, the Greek-Australian was all smiles after the next encounter when two goals from Reo Hatate and one from Liel Abada gave the home side a 3-0 triumph in February to go top of the Premiership, a position in which they remained as they picked up their tenth title in 11 years.

Goals from Tom Rogic and Cameron Carter-Vickers saw Celtic take three points from Ibrox in a 2-1 success in the next confrontation and it was all-square in the east end of Glasgow in April with a 1-1 stalemate after Filipe Jota had opened the scoring.
