Rangers director Steven Gerrard says that he expects next 18, their allocation for Ibrox wills not turn down.

This week, parkhead chief executive Peter Lawwell told the club’s AGM they may refuse tickets to the Glasgow derby on December 29 for security reasons.

Both sides have reduced tickets away to the fixture with only 800 Rangers fans .

“That’s Celtic’s decision should they decide to do that. I hope they do not,” said Gerrard.

“I believe big football matches and Old Firms are all about both sets of fans as well as the banter and all that type of stuff.”

‘It May Be true we do not sign anyone’

Only two things separate Rangers from league leaders Celtic before Livingston going to Ibrox on Saturday.

Gerrard says he is happy with the development of his side as they insists that the upcoming transfer window is going to be a one as he places his faith in those already and look to continue their good form.

“We won’t be doing anything important in January, however when we identify a participant that we feel can fortify us and help us to get the final six months of the season, we will go and try and make this happen,” that the Rangers manager said.

“It might be a case where we do not sign anybody, but there won’t be a lot of activity in terms of volume.

“We did a lot in the summertime, we’re really delighted with the squad right now, but the recruitment process here is we’re always looking to grow and strengthen and improve – that would always be the case.”

“We’ve performed really well at home – we have made it a small fortress up until today and we want to continue to do this,” he said.

“We are going to be playing the front foot and be competitive, like we have done from day one.”
