Once again, the away ticket allocations for Glasgow Derbies are up for discussion.

It was recently announced that there would be no visiting fans at either of the last two league fixtures this season between Celtic and Rangers.

Since 2018, there have only been between 700-800 away fans allowed at Scottish Premiership fixtures between the sides.

This was due to the Ibrox club deciding to cut the allocation after the 2017-18 campaign, in which the Hoops won their second consecutive treble under Brendan Rodgers.

After two years of the number of visiting supporters being reduced and then a league season spent behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, there were no away fans at either of the first two Glasgow Derbies last season due to Covid restrictions.

The previously reduced number of away fans then returned for the four proceeding league fixtures between the two teams.

However, things have once reached a boiling point, with both clubs now agreeing that the current situation is the best way to progress until the end of the season.

Will it be permanent? Will the days of 8000+ allocations return? Or could a European-style of 2500-3000 away fans suit all parties?

Celtic Way:

Meanwhile, Hoops striker Kyogo Furuhashi has spoken publicly for the first time after his latest omission from the Japan national team.

Both he and midfielder Reo Hatate were left out of Hajime Moriyasu's squad for the upcoming friendlies against Uruguay and Colombia.

Daizen Maeda was the only Celtic representative selected.  Despite the setback, 28-year-old is still focused on having a strong end to the season with the Scottish champions.

Speaking to Japanese outlet Nikkan Gendai, he said: "As an individual, I still have a long way to go. After all, there is no future unless I climb the small stairs one by one.

"I am not thinking about the next Japan national team, and I am concentrating on the next match for Celtic.

"There have been games where Daizen has played as a centre forward (at Celtic), so I don’t think I have any guarantee of being a starting lineup. I think it's similar situation

"I just want to clear 20 goals in the league and aim for a high goal of 25 or 30. In every game, there are more chances and there are many situations where I have to score."
