Photo: Bhoys Show How The Celtic End Should Look

Last weekend’s effective title clinching victory over theRangers began with two great visual displays inside Celtic Park. The most eye catching was undoubtedly that produced by the Bhoys ultras group, with their Boys of Kilmichael inspired banners and flags across the lower tier of the Jock Stein Stand (Celtic End).

The unmistakable lyrics ‘Fight ‘neath the green flag of Erin and conquer the red, white and blue’ were emblazoned on a banner across the tier, with a ‘Celtic go bragh’ banner beneath a gold harp, held below. The rest of the Jock Stein lower was awash with green flags.

It was a fitting way to celebrate Celtic’s Irish roots on Easter weekend, as the teams took to the field.

What this display also did was showcase what the Celtic End could and should look like. Indeed, Celtic Shared launched the initiative to convert the lower tier of the Jock Stein Stand into a yellow wall style end of safe standing. The impact this could have on the atmosphere and colour at Parkhead is unquestionably huge.

To support The Celtic End campaign, keep an eye out for the upcoming fan census being launched by the Club and use this to demonstrate the demand for a united, goal-end standing section which will transform Celtic Park.
