Rangers have admitted their “disappointment” over Kilmarnock’s decision to cut their allocation in half for the final game of the season – and suggested they may look at taking fewer tickets in future.

Killie normally give the Rangers support the Chadwick and Moffat stands when they visit Rugby Park but will only give them the Chadwick stand meaning the Gers are losing out on 4000 tickets.

The two sides will meet on May 19th in a match that could end up having a huge impact on Killie’s European ambitions for next season.

An Ibrox spokesperson said the Gers will “consider carefully” their next steps and whether to take a reduced allocation in future.

“We are disappointed with the decision, which will force us to consider carefully what application we will seek for future matches at Rugby Park,” a Rangers spokesperson said, as quoted by Radio Clyde.

 

Previous meetings between the sides have drawn double Kilmarnock’s average 6000 gate but Killie will be lucky to reach that figure – even taking reduced ticket prices into account.

Gers fans weren’t impressed with the decision, with some even calling for a boycott of future games away from Ibrox.

The sides have already met six times this season with the Gers winning twice and losing once to Steve Clarke’s side.
