Celtic SLO responds to Sydney Super Cup frenzy as Rangers friendly splits fans


Celtic’s SLO has revealed fans will receive more information from the club about the Sydney Super Cup.

An announcement from Down Under on Wednesday morning confirmed Ange Postecoglou’s side will take on Rangers in the friendly tournament in November.

Celtic revealed their participation in the exhibition event on Tuesday but did not mention any potential opponents, while their Ibrox rivals have yet to comment.

The other teams have now been confirmed as Sydney FC, Western Sydney and Rangers and fixtures will take place with the Scottish Premiership in shutdown ahead of the Qatar World Cup.

Fan reaction to the move has been lukewarm on both sides with the derby set to be played outside of Glasgow for the first time.

Celtic’s supporter liaison officer John-Paul Taylor apologized for a lack of responses to messages about the development but assured punters the club will communicate further.
