Cumbria Police have warned that anyone travelling across the border for Saturday’s game could face fines if they break the rules.
The force said they are aware of Rangers and Celtic supporters from Dumfries and Galloway, and elsewhere in Scotland, planning to make the trip south of the border to bars and social clubs where alcohol is still served indoors.
And there are fears over large numbers of fans making the trip, risking the further spread of Covid-19.
Supt. Matt Kennerley, said: “We understand restrictions on licensed premises in Scotland might offer the temptation to travel south of the border to visit our pubs and bars – but anybody breaching rules here does face a fine.
