One Celtic fan from Fraserburgh sparked a weekend debate about the geographical spread of the hoops support or ‘wher yeah fae?’ as some might put it.

Without doubt the bulk of the Celtic support comes from across the central belt, probably from within 20 miles of Paradise, but there is a very sizeable number of far flung fans that clock up the miles for home matches.

In Estonia last week it was impossible to miss the banner from the STORNOWAY BHOYS while around Celtic Park where the North Stand joins the Jock Stein stand banners by supporters from Oban, Dublin and Poland are on show at every match.

Since the new look Celtic Park first appeared in 1995 transport across Scotland has improved beyond recognition with fans from Aberdeen facing less than a three hour drive although congestion around the ground can lead to frustrations in getting back on the homeward journey.

All across the east coast of Scotland there are strong areas of Celtic support travelling from Aberdeen, Perth, Dundee, Fife and Edinburgh to join the regulars on the road from England, Ireland and further afield.
