Celtic staff member shares stunning snap of new Paradise surface

Celtic’s Ken Ross has shared a brilliant snap of the Paradise surface in a cheeky dig across the city.

Ross, who works as a tour guide, took to Twitter to share the glorious picture of the playing surface just days after Rangers revealed they’d be forced to play away from Ibrox at the beginning of the season.

The club moved to rip up and re-lay the surface after the season ended as the preparations quickly switched to 2024/25. The pitch is obviously looking excellent and fans will be delighted when to see the Hoops return to action when the season begins.

Brendan Rodgers was critical of the pitch in January/February when his side were in the midst of a run of performances that left fans concerned about their title chances. However, the manager and his team rallied and delivered a title and Scottish Cup.

Next season, Celtic will be looking to retain their trophies whilst regaining the League Cup and competing in Europe. The new format will see two more games and a more lucrative windfall for the Scottish Champions.

  1. The pitch was in a very worrying state for the past couple of seasons, that wasn’t helpful for ourselves either imo?
    Had to be finally addressed, especially with the CL matches running further into the season for ourselves, next season.
    Home advantage will be crucial for ourselves looking to advance in CL football, so getting a pitch that suits how we want and intend to play upon for ourselves, is crucial for giving ourselves the best opportunity available for ourselves also imo?
    Small details, but important ones for ourselves, especially when we want to be comfortable regarding playing upon a decent surface, and allowing for better performances to bring our home supporters into the equation moreso within these CL matches, with the extra energy levels that can be created imo?
    We seen that last season within our CL matches, and looking to improve even moreso in our home matches, and believe a better pitch will benefit ourselves also imo?

  2. Aye, that’ll assist in our pumpings in the Champions league matches, wonderful!!

    Its not the pitch we should be worried about its buying in quality players. Constantly linked with ex players like…Armstrong, Tierney, Edouard, Jota, Starfelt….because Peter KNOWS they wont demand a high wage. Pathetic. Linked with every and ANY goalkeeper under the sun. But who will we end up with?? The biggest mug that accepts the lowest wage after thier club has accepted a lowball bid…providing we dont grab a $£^&**&* free!!

    For a club with money, we act worse that the skintos from govan. And dont give me any drivel about clever business accumen. Its hindering Celtics advancement on the pitch. If our aim isnt to improve year on year, the games a bogey.

    Our board (and Peter the prat in particular) seem happy taking in piles of dosh, getting embarrased yearly in Europe, selling our best players and replacing with cheap mug punts in the hope….not that we improve year on year, no, but simply that the bank balance increases!!

    All the happy clappers beware. Sure, its all rosey now, right. But should we lose the league itll be….”why didnt we spend on quality!!”. Heres a bit of advice, be asking that question NOW….BEFORE that happens.
