Celtic’s SLO John Paul Taylor is today keen to get the news on the Council’s latest move out to the Celtic support, particularly those who will be impacted by the council’s parking plans.

“As you’ll be aware we said we would keep fans updated on developments around this matter so we plan to highlight this today,” John Paul stated.

“As you know this is a subject which is very important to a high number of Celtic Supporters and with indications looking like there will be no additional parking or improvements to public transport to assist those fans who will be impacted we felt this may be an issue you would be interested in.

“As you will see it’s at the early stages however we think it’s important to give fans as much notice as possible in order that they may consider the options available.”

The Ibrox area is also about to suffer a similar fate. With both grounds regularly at capacity – combined at over 100,000 people – this is a huge issue for supporters, many of whom will really struggle to attend matches as a direct result of this council policy.

One interesting suggestion that Celtic could possibly look at would be to build a multi level car park facility on the empty land to behind the Jock Stein stand. Certainly, in the absence of additional public transport being offered there needs to be some creative thinking on this matter.
