has marked his first day as Celtic CEO by announcing that the have sold more than any other club in Scotland.

It doesn’t take long to realise that that comment was made for one club, across the city of Glasgow.

Having the highest number of Season Ticket holders brings additional pressure with close to 50,000 fans wanting a return to winning ways rather than leaving early as and celebrate inside Celtic Park.
