Daily Record winding up their numbskull readers by continuing their SFA v Rangers agenda: 

SFA to block Rangers slashing Celtic ticket allocation for Scottish Cup clashes at Ibrox

The Ibrox side promised to cut the number of tickets given to their rivals from 8000 to just over 800.

Ian Maxwell won’t allow Rangers to lock Celtic supporters out of Ibrox if the feuding neighbours collide in next season’s Scottish Cup.

Rangers have promised to cut Celtic’s ticket allocation from 8000 to just more than 800 for league matches on their own ground next season. In a tit-for-tat move Celtic threatened to take similar action when Steven Gerrard’s side travel across the Clyde.

But under SFA rules, visiting clubs are entitled to 20 per cent of available seats for Scottish Cup ties.

Which would mean both clubs could demand more than 10,000 tickets for their fans should they be pulled out of the hat together before the semi-finals. And Maxwell has no intention of endorsing a lockout on away fans as he attempts to land a bumper TV deal for next season’s competition.

He said: “There is guidance in the rules, a minimum percentage.

“It is important that supporters get a chance to go and support their team.

“The SFA rules on crowd percentage have been in place for a while and there is no desire as far as I am aware to look at them.”

 

 

 

Complete and utter non-story. 

Rangers cut league allocation only so that they can sell more season tickets. Rules are already in place about allocation for cup games. 

But let's wind up the gullible fans into thinking the SFA have ruled against them once again.
