2,000 Celtic fans are permitted to attend the pre-season friendly against Preston North End at Parkhead on 17 July. Celtic supporters have hit out at the decision, as 12,000 were allowed in at Hampden.
The limited number of tickets has left fans fuming with only a few being let in to watch the Celts in a 60,000-seater stadium.
During Scotland’s Euro 2020 group games, against the Czech Republic and Croatia, at Hampden which holds 52,000 there were 12,000 fans allowed inside.
See below the fans reactions:
Absolute nonsense, 12,000 at Hampden but only 2,000 at Celtic Park … see if we play yes sir I can boogie over the tannoy can we have an extra 10,000? https://t.co/bDg9Rq1jc1

5% capacity at Airdrie on Saturday which got me really annoyed considering I was one of 12500 at Hampden the other week (25% capacity) but now seeing only 3% at Celtic for their next game. Football fans are being absolutely SHAFTED.

This will be the first time in 16 moths that Celtic fans have been able to see the team play inside the stadium, after the pandemic brought Scottish football to a halt.
It will also be the first time they Celtic faithful get to see Ange Postecogulo in action at Parkhead.
