In a massive u-turn by the Scottish Government, there will be supporters allowed inside stadiums ‘within weeks’ but only small test amounts at the moment.
This is the most significant announcement to date with regards to spectators at sport in Scotland and could be the gateway into getting a full Celtic Park in the not too distant future.

Right now, the season is likely to kick off without supporters but if Scotland continues to control the virus — it could just be a matter of time.
Celtic fans are anxious to get back to Celtic Park and support the team in what could be a historic season.
With virtual season tickets in place — fans will be watching front their sofas to begin with but hopefully not for too long
It’s a delicate situation, too much too soon and a full lockdown could come back into play.
Let’s hope for a positive outcome.
