Celtic. Tuesday nights, 7:45pm kick-offs. Synonymous, right?
Well, on this day and this day only, you’d be very, very wrong.
In what must be a first, the starting XI are actually playing at 3:30pm, given that the COP26 conference is happening when Celtic should have been at home in the next matchday, alongside theRangers playing at the same time.
The news has finally hit Celtic fans as they’ve had to book time off work, off college and had to skive off school in some cases.
And, following the news, some hilarious tweets followed in the aftermath of a tweet from Celtic’s official Twitter page…

However, despite the funny side of the manner, Ange praised the fans for being so committed to the cause – even on a weekday.
“We have still sold a ridiculous amount of tickets for this match, given the situation. It just shows how committed our supporters are – some will have taken time off work or family duties to support the team.” – Ange on Celtic’s unusual kick off time on Tuesday. pic.twitter.com/J3YLg9fMI1
