Kenny Miller reckons Rangers and Celtic risking diminishing "the best derby in world football" by locking out away fans. Both clubs have voiced concerns about the safety of supporters in the limited numbers situation with around 800 currently allowed into either stadium - and it has now been reduced to zero for the remainder of the season with fixtures lined up at both Celtic Park and Ibrox.

However, Miller - who has played for both sides of the Glasgow divide - believes that the "electricity" of the fixture will disappear with an eery atmosphere predicted when the visitors find the net.

The Record Sport columnist called for both Scottish Premiership sides to come together and solve the issues - by putting the "politics" to the side.

He said: "The Old Firm fixture is widely regarded as the best derby in world football. But we're in real danger now of diminishing this game by having no away supporters at Ibrox or Parkhead. "The reason it's the biggest derby around the globe is because of the fierce rivalry.
