Rangers fans will be the only ones inside Ibrox when the Light Blues unfurl the Scottish Premiership league flag later this month ahead of facing Motherwell after the Steelmen announced no tickets would be made available to visiting supporters.
In an update on their club website, Motherwell confirmed that that ongoing Covid restrictions meant that fans wouldn’t be available for away fans due to Rangers’ need to relocate season-ticket holders at Ibrox.
Due to Covid restrictions, there will be no away fan ticket sales for our trip to Rangers.
We are awaiting approval to show the match in our bars at Fir Park.

Motherwell fans will instead have to order the game on PPV via Rangers TV – although the Steelmen are seeking permission to show it inside bars within Fir Park, saying: “Our opponents have advised us that, due to ongoing restrictions at Ibrox, no away allocation will be sent for Sunday’s match.
“Having initially been declined an allocation, subsequent dialogue led to Rangers providing us with a detailed explanation that, due to the displacement of some supporters due to a Covid “red zone”, an away section is not possible.
“While regrettable that no Motherwell fans can attend, we accept that Covid restrictions have led to an unavoidable situation. We have asked the SPFL for permission to instead show the game at our bars at Fir Park, and we are awaiting approval.
“Details on how to buy the match from Rangers on pay-per-view will be made available shortly.”
Rangers fans will finally get a real chance to celebrate last season’s record-breaking title success when the league flag is unfurled in front of a packed Ibrox – and hopefully the players can deliver with three points.
