It would now take rather an almighty slip up for Celtic not to win the Scottish Premiership title for the sixth year in a row and the Bhoys in the bar of the Transfer Tavern are absolutely delighted about that, to say the least.
This whole season has been a cause for celebration, though comments from Dundee general manager Jim Thomson (quoted in the Glasgow Evening Times) have tempered expectations for the perhaps the coronating game of the campaign somewhat. Brendan Rodgers’ side have the chance to win the league at Dens Park if Aberdeen lose to Hears and the Hoops manage to win their game.
However, they have already sold out their allocation and Thomson has revealed they will clamp down on tickets being sold outside the ground, announcing they will only afford tickets to home fans who have a history of buying from the club. Some of the punters in the bar who were hoping to risk it have been left disappointed on what could be a famous day for Celtic and their second trophy of the season.
There will obviously be a lot of excitement among Celtic fans at the thought of potentially winning the title this weekend,” Thomson said.
“They have sold their allocation but there’s no chance of any of their supporters turning up on the day or even before that to purchase match-day tickets.
“We won’t allow that to happen for security reasons. Dundee FC are only selling tickets to those Dundee fans who have a history of buying tickets from us.”
