New Rangers CEO James Bisgrove has announced that a maximum of 800 Celtic fans will be allowed to attend Old Firm games at Ibrox next season. Bisgrove said that talks with Police Scotland and Celtic will take place in the summer to determine the number of away fans, which will not be close to the 7,000 who used to attend. He also mentioned his desire to “revisit the feasibility” of safe standing returning to Ibrox.
Bisgrove is confident that with astute signings, Rangers can become the “dominant team in Scottish football” despite Celtic’s dominance in recent seasons. He believes that with the right recruitment decisions, such as the acquisitions of Nicolas Raskin and Todd Cantwell, the Rangers team next season will be a winning one.
Meanwhile, manager Michael Beale has played down speculation linking Rangers with Los Angeles’ 24-year-old Ecuador midfielder Jose Cifuentes. Beale stated that the move is not close to happening and that Cifuentes’ contract runs until December.
