These Rangers fans are not happy with controversial Betfred Cup decision

Rangers are set to play Celtic in the final of the Betfred Cup next month in the first Old Firm final for eight years, but fans are complaining about ticket prices.

Scotland’s two footballing powerhouses will attract a bumper crowd no matter where they play and many supporters feel that the two clubs are taking advantage of their loyal supports.

The maximum priced ticket sits at £45 and some supporters are bemoaning the £10 increase from the Hampden semi-finals.

You can understand that supporters, who’ve already forked out for season tickets, away days, European nights at Ibrox and big trips to the continent, are feeling the pinch.

For some the £45 is an affordable price, for others it’s a lot of money when you don’t have it.

Rangers fans aren’t the only ones bemoaning the prices, our Celtic rivals have also taken issue with the expense attached to ticketing the fixture.

Despite the groans, the £45 is actually £7 cheaper than the last Old Firm at Ibrox but there is a delivery fee attached to those who cannot collect the tickets.

There are also some that think when compared to the cost of tickets elsewhere, the cost of this match is a snip.

Rangers are set to play Celtic at Hampden on December the 8th with the match enjoying a later kick-off time of 3 pm on the Sunday afternoon.
