CELTIC have released a job advert for a ‘Covid Vaccine Passport Checker’ with a start date of the 17th of January. This means the club is still assuming that fans will be back in a large capacity for the resumption of the season.
So yes, One Recruitment has been instructed by Celtic to hire vaccine passport checkers for the 17th of January [Celtic vs Hibs]. https://t.co/HHOYqieLIg
Not an indication there will be a full house, but certainly, that Celtic haven't been told yet there won't be.

Nicola Sturgeon is to give a further update on the situation on Tuesday, but with the club pushing forward with their preparations, fans can grow confident that a positive decision will be made in regards to fans in the coming days.
The advert comes after the JRG informed clubs to prepare for full capacity, however, this was still to receive the green light from the Scottish Government over the weekend. With the risk significantly lower with the Omicron variant, the league officials have presented their case to the Government proving that football grounds are COVID safe.
After a full season locked out, and part of the season before, fans were unhappy with the decision to effectively be locked out again.
