Ticketless Celtic Fan Applies For Kiosk Assistant Job At Ibrox Purely To Watch The Old Firm Clash With Rangers
| Last updated
One Celtic fan came up with a cunning plan to watch Sunday's Old Firm clash with Rangers after finding himself without a ticket for match at Ibrox.
The supporter claims to have applied for a job as a kiosk assistant to gain access to the stadium.
But after turning up for the shift on the morning of the match, he then hid in the toilets until Celtic's fans were allowed into the ground and later managed to blend in with the visiting supporters.
His efforts paid off as Celtic went on to win the match 2-1, to move six points clear of their bitter rivals at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
"Met a kid yesterday in ground who’d applied for a job as kiosk worker decked out head to toe in work gear and he’d to start at 9am," wrote another Celtic fan on Twitter.
"Min he got into ground to work he hid in toilets til Celtic fans got in then was bouncing about with us all day.
"I salute you kid what a move."
Hahahaha here I am m8. Feet are killing me wearing they shoes all day 🤣😎🍀— calanclarkk1 (@calanclarkk1) April 4, 2022
The fan then replied: "Hahahaha here I am m8. Feet are killing me wearing they shoes all day."
He also posted a picture of the application form for the role as a kiosk assistant at Ibrox and an image of himself in the away end, alongside the caption: "Hahaha wit a day I had yesterday. League over."
Rangers took an early lead in Sunday’s derby when Aaron Ramsey opened the scoring after just three minutes.
But goals from Tom Rogic and Cameron Carter-Vickers secured Celtic a crucial victory in the Premiership title race.

A number of incidents of crowd trouble marred the match, with a member of the Celtic backroom requiring stitches after he was reportedly hit with a missile from the home end.
The match was also delayed for a number of minutes before the start of the second half after broken glass was spotted in Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart’s penalty area.
Meanwhile, Police Scotland have also confirmed that three Celtic fans were arrested ahead of the game for allegedly using glue and expanding foam on entrances to Ibrox in an effort to prevent Rangers fans from attending the match.
