'Ridiculous', 'Embarrassing' - Celtic fans rage at yet another Thursday announcement
Celtic supporters on social media reacted furiously on Thursday to a letter sent out to season ticket holders.
The contents of the letter, which has been quoted by the Scottish Sun, are that seasons tickets should only be used by supporters whose names are on the season tickets for “security and safety” reasons.
People wouldn’t be able to give the ticket to their friend or relative if they were unable to attend the game, if Celtic had their way.
Unsurprisingly the move has gone down very badly on Twitter, with one fan claiming that the club would rather have “seats lying empty” than filled with people.
Here are a few of the best reactions from Twitter:
Why would Celtic bother sending out a letter like that. We've paid upfront for our books would they no rather a seat was filled by a fan than lying empty like most were last night? Needless & embarrassing. @CelticFCTickets

This letter Celtic have sent out is ridiculous. If that was strictly policed I would've got to almost 0 games as a child. I used my dad's friends STs when they couldn't go then bought my own. Club have had thousands off me since

If that letter is genuine it's another massive PR own goal by Celtic. Ridiculous letter and mind-blowingly stupid timing.
