Besides, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen have healthy populations its should be on those clubs to promote and fill their grounds if they want more ££, especially Aberdeen being a one club city.

dreadful from Motherwell - but i get the impression that Alexander is a complete diddy and a lower league team manager so it doesnt suprise

Motherwell are so bad. Dundee United have a solid tie so they are done for.

Hearts at least are guaranteed conference

yeah im not sure this massively hurts the co-effiecient any more than previous years because Hearts will get points for going to the groups stage. Who knows they may even then get a result or 2.

It is embarrassing for Motherwell and Scottish football though, happens every year so used to it now.

And that's the first managerial casualty of the campaign, before the league has even started. Shambles.

Too fooking right they should keep their gate money, how big would you imagine the cost is to put on a game at Celtic Park with 60,000 in attendance compared to Ross County or Livingston?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

That's a complex question.

I would expect the policing costs directly equate to the number of away fans expected, plus the expectation of trouble.

When United host Ross County for example, we can expect a couple of hundred fans who don't cause problems. This means the club can dramatically cut costs, and even (with agreement) forego police presence entirely.

When United host either side of the old firm, unfortunately that requires a full police operation. These are the only times we see police horses for example. The burden of cost is quite high on clubs for these games.

No idea what police presence is required at CP/Ibrox for the visit of United though. Can't imagine it's substantially increased or decreased as I imagine it's similar for every game?

Dundee has a dwindling population. Around 120k I think.

Also filling grounds is easier when you win things. As Celtic fans will recognise from various periods in your history, attendances drop dramatically when you aren't winning. After four decades of being unable to compete, it's understandable that filling grounds is a challenge.
