No matter how impressive they are, the timing of the ‘Disco Lights’ at Celtic Park will always be associated with a massive failure.
With money in the bank from two successive seasons in the Champions League group stage hopes of on-field investment were high among Celtic supporters.
A brand new pitch was welcomed with fancy new floodlight a bonus.

When Celtic crashed out of the Champions League to AEK Athens Chris Sutton dubbed them disco lights and the term stuck.
Before the first leg against AEK Brendan Rodgers spoke out about his frustrations in the transfer market, during the 1-1 first leg draw John McGinn signed for Aston Villa.
McGinn wasn’t seen as a priority signing by many supporters but as transfer business stalled after bringing in Odsonne Edouard the name of McGinn became a symptom of a summer of missed opportunities.
Hopefully RB Leipzig suffer under the lights on Thursday night and that next season they are showcasing Champions League football.
