Celtic have again called on a large police presence for the game against Lille this evening to stop supporters from getting in or around the ground.
Every since the protests after the Ross County game, Celtic fans have been locked out of the front of Celtic Park.
The police in attendance looks like we’re expecting a full crowd and looks very over the top for a second game running.

Celtic will play their final European game of the campaign this evening against Lille in a dead rubber and with a peaceful protest set for Sunday before the Kilmarnock game, the board are not being complacent when it comes to security.
Celtic fans haven’t been inside the ground since March and the fence going up presents a very physical barrier between the board and the support.
It’s a shame it’s come to this. Celtic will be footing the bill for the police in attendance.
