Whoever thought that was a good date to have they two teams together must be off their head.

I was horrified to see this, and cannot believe there was no possible alternative.

These games are bad enough on a Sunday so to have one on a Saturday where people will be drinking for the match and then the bells is going to be a complete disaster. The police will need to triple the amount of staff on duty that day/night.

Horrendous decision.

I worked over the bells last year and it was absolutely horrific. We totally ran out of cells There were far more cops on duty than usual we never stopped all night and left dazed thinking 'wtf was that shift like' Can't wait to do it all again this year with an Old Firm Game thrown in. Don't know why the powers that be are allowing it quite honestly

Really stupid idea.

Oh ffs...I'm off Hogmanay but working late shift on NYD. Are the SFA having a laugh? NYD is a public holiday for cops so the numbers on the street will be way down, they really don't need to be mopping up all the domestic violence this will bring about. No happy!

Hope your rest day isn't cancelled for this shambles

Unbelievably stupid decision imo. We normally stay in on Hogmanay and this has confirmed our plans won't be changing this year! I foresee a lot of drunken violence, I feel sorry for emergency services workers. sad

I feel really sorry for those that work in Domestic Violence. There is always a spike on Old Firm Days and combining that with Hogmanay......sad

I'm really shocked that this is going ahead, an unbelievably stupid decision.
