Rangers have been left “disappointed” after Hearts confirmed only 1000 tickets would be made available for Gers fans when the two sides meet at Tynecastle next month.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst will take his players across the M8 on December 12 but the Light Blues will have a “significantly lower” allocation than previous trips to Gorgie.

Rangers last trip to Tynecastle came before the Covid-19 pandemic forced the postponement of 2019/20 season, with the Gers having their allocation slashed for that fixture too.

“Rangers has expressed its disappointment to Hearts regarding this reduced allocation and requested additional tickets are made available if possible,” a statement said on the club’s official website.

“The demand for tickets for this match is exceptionally high, with nearly 11,000 registrations received.”

The Gers traditionally get the full Roseburn Stand at Tynecastle but will only be given a section of the stand when the sides meet next month.

No reason is given for the reduced allocation but with Hearts flying high in the table, the Jambos will likely see an increased demand for tickets anyway.

However, if Rangers fans end up sitting in a stand next to hundreds (or even thousands) of empty maroon seats, there’s something seriously wrong.
