A short video has been produced showing the process involved to turn Celtic Park in to a 75,000 capacity stadium.

Supporters are definitely in two camps over the prospect, the glass half full section believe that the current Season Ticket waiting list justifies expansion while the half empty fans know that a significant number of Season Ticket holders are absent from run of the mill SPFL fixtures.

While ambition is welcomed, current social distancing rules ensure that the prospect is a long way off with next Saturday’s match against Livingston the fifth game of the season played Behind Closed Doors.

Three sides of Celtic Park were redeveloped in the nineties after the bulldozers moved in to flatten the old terraces, leaving only the South Stand unaffected.

As the new stands sprung up the South Stand, completed in 1971, was dwarfed by the three new connected structures that lifted capacity to 60,000.

While demand is currently high in reality it would take a move to the EPL or a major UEFA restructuring to justify bringing the South Stand in line with the rest of the stadium.
