The club insisted that only the person named on the ticket could use it, and fans were not permitted to give to someone else in their absence.

Supporter safety was the reason behind the club’s stance, while they also cited SPFL regulations.

However, fans were generally outraged by the instruction. Many called into question why Celtic would prefer an empty seat to a friend or family member using the ticket.

The club’s supporter liason officer has since taken to Twitter to apologise to the fans.
