Celtic chief executive, Peter Lawwell has expressed his delight at the governments decision this afternoon, that fans will be partially be allowed back into football grounds by the 14th September, with several test events to take place before this date.
In a statement realised this afternoon on the Celtic website, Lawwell has said he is ‘delighted and very appreciative’ that the government have finally set dates when spectators can eventually enter grounds.
“Celtic are delighted with this positive development and are very appreciative that the Government has taken this important step. We would like to thank the Scottish Government, the SFA/SPFL Joint Response Group and everyone at the Club who have collaborated and worked so hard over these past few difficult months.
It is our intention to get as many supporters as we can back into Celtic Park as soon as we can, within the guidance. However, the safety and security of our supporters is always our top priority, and we will communicate more on this as soon as possible.”
This will not just come as a delight to the club and Lawwell but also the fans who will have to watch the return of Scottish Football, online via the new ‘Pass to Paradise’ supplied by the club to those with season tickets.
The last time, fans were able to see the team in a stadium was all the way back in March, so when the day does come that they can watch the team once again from inside the stadium, it will come with much excitement.
