Celtic fans have voiced their frustration ahead of the Old Firm derby against Rangers at Celtic Park next month.

It may be the first Old Firm derby in the Scottish top flight in over four years but Celtic fans believe that is no excuse for their club to charge almost £50 for a home ticket. 

The price is roughly double what supporters would be paying for most other matches, including the Hoops' Champions League qualifier against Hapoel Beer Sheva tomorrow evening.

Concessions prices have also taken a similar hike as well with tickets costing £30 which is £13 more than usual. 

The last time the teams met was during the 2015/16 Scottish Cup semi-final in April with Rangers emerging as victors following a penalty shoot-out. 

New manager Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to help Celtic avenger their Scottish Cup defeat in what will be the first league match between the Glasgow rivals since 2012.

The long awaited Old Firm derby will take place on Saturday September 10th and despite the prices, tickets are still expected to sell out - though that hasn't stopped fans venting their anger on Twitter.
