Sky Sports commentators Ian Crocker and Chris Sutton have aimed a dig towards Ibrox during the live coverage of the Edinburgh Derby this evening. Crocker, who commentates on almost all of the live games in Scotland, was commenting on the 4,000 away supporters at Easter Road.
Crocker made the comment ahead of Saturday’s Glasgow Derby between Celtic and theRangers, which will be the second league game between the sides without any away fans this season.
“The two have got their heads together to get a decent away support.”
Chris Sutton responded “It’s a shame it’s not like that everywhere.”
There will be no Rangers supporters at the game as Celtic hold firm over the safety concerns of sending fans to Ibrox with the arrangement of just 750 supporters.
Celtic have been attempting to hold talks about returning larger allocations to pre-petulant levels; however, Rangers have been unwilling to entertain this. Now, fans of both teams will lose out on attending one of the biggest games of the season.
Hopefully, talks of ‘European’ style allocations can be facilitated next season and the topic of allocations can be shelved.
