Friday will mark a year since supporters last attended a match at Celtic Park with no signs of the bonds and affection for the stadium growing stronger.

On and off the pitch Celtic have had a nightmare season but for thousands of people the fortnightly, monthly or annual visit to the top of Kerrydale Street (now, the Celtic Way) is the main constant in their life.

As spring finally appeared yesterday the tea-time skies around Glasgow had phones snapping upwards with one fan capturing the brilliance and warmth of the famous East End landmark.

The modern Celtic Park emerged in 1995 with the North Stand towering over local landmarks and visible from many areas of the city.

Over the next couple of years both ends were brought up to the same height and merged with the South Stand which was constructed in 1971.

It’s unlikely that any fans will be inside Celtic Park this season but from the comments below the stadium is far from forgotten as supporters look forward to the return of one old norm in particular.
