One even dated from the time when Rangers allowed Celtic supporters to be accommodated in one half of the main stand enclosure at Ibrox.

This was the late 1980s – not as long ago as some might have thought.

Stewart Robertson, the managing director of Rangers, has all but sounded the death knell for the days when as many as 6-7,000 away supporters attended Old Firm fixtures.

In stadiums where the capacities are over 50,000, well over in the case of Celtic Park, this must be regarded as a matter of regret.

It’s ironic that the conversation moved from talking about Scottish football’s failure to secure a television deal that is even commensurate with those of similar sized countries elsewhere to the topic of away fans at Old Firm games.

Robertson, however, believes a “vast majority” of Rangers fans agrees with the policy of cutting the Celtic allocation to such a slim number.

Robertson voiced his dismay at the poor value Scottish football gets from Sky Sports, where the deal, as poor as it is, hinges on the four Old Firm meetings per season.
