Robertson has suggested that the days of welcoming 7000 away fans at Rangers v Celtic fixtures will not return “in the short term” after recent matches between the rivals saw numbers significantly reduced, or cut altogether.

Celtic had around 700 tickets cancelled for the first clash between the two Glasgow clubs at Ibrox in August while no Rangers supporters will be in attendance for the upcoming February 2 clash at Celtic Park.

Celtic fans were traditionally handed the full Broomloan Stand before a decision was taken in 2018 to cut their allocation to just 800, leading the Parkhead club to reciprocate.

"This is a guy who says Scottish football sells itself short and then limits away fans when our game is worse for it."

"What a sad state of affairs," Sutton tweeted.

"The game whether at Ibrox or Celtic Park is a much better atmosphere and watch with 6000 away fans.

Former Celtic striker Sutton has hit back at those remarks, insisting that the fixture is losing the famous cauldron atmosphere it has become renowned for across world football due to the lack of rival supporters inside the ground.
