Rangers have confirmed they will have no away supporters at Celtic Park when they take on their rivals on December 30, despite a request for tickets.

Glasgow's big two are set to collide at Parkhead in what will be a huge match in the Scottish Premiership title race. 

However, Brendan Rodgers' Hoops will be hoping to make home advantage count with no visiting fans granted access for the festive tussle.

Rangers have today released a statement stating that despite the club winning a case put to an SPFL Board Sub-Committee, they will not have any supporters present for the fixture.

A statement read: "The Sub-Committee agreed with Rangers that Celtic FC’s stance of providing zero tickets to Rangers’ fans was unreasonable. 

"Despite the fact that the Sub-Committee agreed with Rangers, the Sub-Committee was unwilling to determine what a ‘reasonable’ number of tickets for the fixture would be.

"The Sub-Committee was unable to determine this reasonable number due to the fact that the other party had not submitted enough evidence on this issue, despite having ample opportunity to do so in the weeks and months leading up to the hearing.

"Rangers’ position has always been clear. We want away fans from all clubs at our stadium and wish for that to be reciprocated when we travel to other clubs’ grounds."

Rangers continued by taking aim at the SPFL for their ruling around away supporters at matches. The statement continued: "This decision calls into question the effectiveness, and highlights the procedural defects, of SPFL Rule I27. 

"To Rangers, it is grossly unfair that if a club (in this case Celtic) fails to submit sufficient evidence as part of such proceedings, it effectively ties the hands of a Sub-Committee in being able to determine what a reasonable number of tickets should be; especially when the Sub-Committee agrees that the reasonable number cannot be zero.

"Conversely, if a club (in this case Rangers) complies fully and provides all necessary information in good faith, it can still be penalised.

"The club will consider its position before participating in any further SPFL led hearings. 

"Rangers, alongside several other SPFL clubs, also looks forward to the overdue findings of the ongoing, protracted SPFL Governance review. Rangers will be making no further comment at this time."
