Some Celtic fans have expressed their frustration at the club bringing a low attendance for their games away to Aberdeen.

The Hoops’ most recent trip to the Pittodrie came this past weekend when they ran out 2-1 winners. Callum McGregor scored in the first half, only to see the home side equalise – though a late goal from Kristoffer Ajer won the points for Celtic.

Is the low attendance at Aberdeen Celtic's fault?

Never, its on Aberdeen

After the game, Celtic-related page Lisbon Lion discussed the club receiving a low allocation for the game after highlighting the empty seats at Pittodrie, which left many Hoops fans discussing passionately.

Celtic boast of a formidable record against Aberdeen over the years. They’ve played against them 65 times since the 2004/05 season. During this time, they’ve beaten them a total of 54 times and have lost just seven times.

The average attendance in these games in the Premiership stands at 35,370 – the second-highest for the Hoops and only behind the average attendance against Old Firm rivals Rangers.

What do we think?

Aberdeen can have their reasons for giving lesser tickets to Celtic for games. Only they know the reason, but Hoops fans shouldn’t mock those reasons – whatever they may be.
