Celtic are in action today, a week before the Scottish Premiership kick-off, providing Neil Lennon’s squad with some much-needed match practice.
The Scottish champions are playing Ross County behind closed doors at Celtic Park.
The team aren’t the only ones being put through their paces either, with the club’s new ‘Pass To Paradise’ online streaming service also being tested by season ticket holders.
Those who have invested their money into the club throughout the summer have been given credentials to login and watch home games that go ahead this season without a crowd in place.
Unfortunately for some, the first opportunity to use the ‘virtual season ticket’ platform has not gone to plan.
There are fans on social media this afternoon sending in their complaints to Celtic’s official accounts, unhappy that they are unable to login and see Celtic score early goals against the Staggies.
You can see a sample of that below.

Thanks for the update but if you could sort out the issues so we can actually see it that would be great!

This is a disgrace people paying a lot of money for season tickets and this is the service you get

Some are able to watch the game but there are plenty of comments suggesting that work is needed to resolve problems ahead of next Sunday’s Hamilton match.
However, at the time of publishing, there are severe audio issues here too.
The test event is presumably being used to resolve these kinds of issues so hopefully those working hard behind the scenes on the service can iron everything out quickly.
There’s another match at home to Hibernian tomorrow and the ‘Pass To Paradise’ will again be available to use.
No doubt there will be further communication from the club on all this later.
As it stands, Celtic are currently 2-0 up on today’s visitors.
