Earlier today Nicola Sturgeon announced that stadiums can operate at a full capacity from the 17th of January, the day Celtic are set to host Hibernian.

Previous to the winter break regulations stated that a maximum of just 500 fans were permitted in stadiums however all such restrictions have now been removed.

However, there are two conditions to allow fans into stadiums:

Fans wishing to cheer on the Hoops must now show proof of full vaccination – including the booster vaccine. However, if the second jab was administered less than four months ago, that will define as fully vaccinated.  

It will be Celtic’s responsibility to spot check at least half of those attending the match.

If the supporter does not meet this criteria, a negative lateral flow that has been recorded within the last 24 hours will allow the supporter to watch Postecoglou’s bhoys. [The National]

Ultimately, this was the best news the clubs could get and Celtic fans will be excited to witness the upcoming fixtures in person rather than on their couch.
