Rangers have called for season ticket holders who won’t make Saturday’s Ibrox Old Firm to put their tickets up for secondary ticketing to fulfil obligations.

This means that any ticket which is put up won’t be put our for resale to fellow supporters.

Instead, the club will take it immediately to fulfil ticketing obligations. These concern spaces for hospitality, sponsors, staff allocations and former players.

The news was announced by the club’s Supporter Liaison Officer Greg Marshall on Twitter.

Some fans have vented frustration at the request, even calling it embarrassing. But the truth is all football clubs have these obligations.

It appears that less season ticket holders than expected put tickets up for secondary ticketing. Hence the appeal.

Whatever happens, it’s not really the supporter’s problem. If Rangers have failed to meet their targets with ticketing then solving it can’t come at the expense of paying supporters.

You can also understand the frustration of those who might have considered putting tickets up for secondary ticketing. Many would’ve believed that their tickets offered an ordinary supporter the chance to see the game.

From the Tweets, that doesn’t seem the case. This time around at least.

Many fans also believe Rangers season could rest on the outcome of Saturday’s game.
