Feyenoord are struggling to sell their allocation for next week’s Europa League clash with Rangers, according to a report, with just over half of the tickets sold.

According to the Daily Record, the Dutch side have sold 1400 of their 2600 tickets with blame apparently directed towards the high prices.

Feyenoord fans will pay around €51 (£46) for tickets and a booking fee – although that is hardly an outrageous price given the prices for tickets in many sections of De Kuip are often far higher.

The Dutch fans were given an extended section with part of Ibrox ordered to remain closed by UEFA for a second time this season meaning there will be at least 3000 empty seats for the second successive European game.

Rangers have also refused to take any allocation for their first away game of the group stage – against Young Boys – and hopefully end any issues over singing.

The Feyenoord fans have had their own issues recently, with a section of De Kuip having to be closed for their derby clash with Den Haag tomorrow after flares were set off in a game against bitter rivals Ajax last season.
