Confirmed – Club to provide Celtic Fan Media access for Champions League

Asked on Friday afternoon, ahead of the fixture list for the Champions League being released early yesterday morning if he was confident about picking up some points and getting out of the group, Ange Postecoglou delivered another classic one liner to open his response.

“We have not played a game yet, mate,” the Celtic manager replied.

Ange continued: “Once we start, we will address that as we go along. We will address each fixture as it comes.

“We have three important games before that. We want to go into those games in good form and feel good about ourselves. Once we get through our next three games, hopefully in strong form, then we will see who is first up and will tackle that.

“To start looking beyond that is not something you can do in this competition. You have to focus on your next opponent, or you will not get past them.”

First up is Real Madrid a week on Tuesday at Celtic Park in what promises to be one of the most incredible atmospheres ever created in that place we call Paradise. Every Celtic supporter at the game will be totally up for it and ready to do our bit to roar the team on to a famous victory, just like the last time Real Madrid came calling in what was then the European Cup.

FAN MEDIA ACCESS CONFIRMED FOR CHAMPIONS LEAGUE MATCHES AT CELTIC PARK

And yesterday afternoon Celtic confirmed that the Celtic fan media will be fully involved in the Champions League games at Celtic Park and on a rotating basis will attend both the pre-match media conferences – these will be in person at Celtic Park and not on Zoom – and also the post match conferences, collecting a media pass ahead of kick-off then going to the media access point after watching the match from our own seats, to gain admission.
