Celtic have agreed a meeting with the Celtic Trust next week as unrest over the running and direction of the club increases.
Recent events have resulted in a surge in membership of the Trust who have bought up shares from the new subscribers.
Following two after-match fan demonstrations the Trust is planning a pre-match demonstration on Sunday outside of Celtic Park to ensure that the displeasure of the fans is conveyed to the club hierarchy.
Prior to the match against Lille the club announced:
As is always the case, the Club is, of course, happy to engage with supporters and supporter groups to understand and discuss concerns, and the Club encourages supporters to raise their concerns with the Club directly. Indeed, following a recent request, we look forward to meeting The Celtic Trust next week.
That announcement was made soon after fresh barricades were installed at the top of the Celtic Way with next week’s meeting the first sign of the club connecting with supporters despite picking up 50,000 Season Ticket renewals with no certainty of fans being allowed back into Celtic Park.
On Monday Celtic will host a virtual AGM during which selected questions will be answered by the board. Normally that aspect of the meeting takes about an hour, with the questions already submitted there is no reason why the club can’t publish and reply to all questions from share-holders.

We are aware that the protest (see graphic) planned for Sunday is contentious. We understand the concerns of many supporters – both health concerns and the impact on the team and we have addressed both in the planning. See guidelines below. pic.twitter.com/4KPvqUqneL
