It's by proportion to stadium capacity not pure numbers. If someone has a stadium capacity of 80,000 for example, if they sell out 40% of their stadium they've sold just under 90% of Rangers's/Ibrox's capacity (Just under 52,000), so by their standards, with a stadium that size, isn't 'good'.
If you factor in UCL games and friendly's, well friendly's isn't even going to do anything, they'd be lower than SPL games anyway, but UCL games, there has been jumps in Celtic's attendances, as you'd expect, but it's still kinda' irrelevant as you have a bigger capacity, if one club has a 20,000 capacity and keep selling it out 100% all season, but Borussia Dortmund (80,000 capacity) play half the amount of games as the other club and sell out 100% too they're obviously going to be higher in total attendance numbers, the proportion and %'s are a lot more important as some sort of indication someone is looking for, even if pure numbers was relevant, we've had higher attendances in the majority of games (excluding UCL) anyway.
