Celtic and Rangers ban Old Firm away support

The last two Scottish Premiership matches between Celtic and Rangers this season will be played without any away fans.

Leaders Celtic host Rangers at Parkhead on Saturday April 8, with the two teams then set to meet at Ibrox after the top-flight splits - with a date yet to be confirmed for that tie.

However, following incidents at recent meetings at both stadia, the two clubs have held meetings and decided to only admit home supporters to the upcoming league matches

Both clubs are now set to work together to find solutions to recent issues at both Ibrox and Celtic Park.

Recent meetings have seen limited travelling support attend, with Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson telling Sky Sports News last year the club would not increase the allocation back to previous levels.

Next month's match at Celtic Park takes place weeks before the Old Firm go head-to-head in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park where ticket allocations will be split.
