The Celtic fans are digesting another win at home this year following last night’s match against Hibs.
It’s 16 on the bounce for the Hoops, but this game also was the debut of ‘something a little bit different’.
A new disco lights show is creating somewhat of a buzz on social media.

Celtic tease new pre-match entertainment
Before the match, the club posted a Tweet to supporters about being ready for the new lights show.
The previous show was getting repetitive with the same music and lights sequence ending in the huddle.
Tops for Celtic realising this and changing it up a bit with a new sequence.
Before the match, the fans were entertained with lights to the tune of ACDC hit ‘Thunderstruck’.
The song choice appeared to be spot on as former manager Neil Lennon spoke about ‘bringing the thunder back’ during his Hoops tenure.
However, not all Celtic fans are convinced with the new show, with some wanting a better, more tailored music choice.
Celtic fans react to new lights show on Twitter
Supporters took to Twitter after the show to outline their opinion on the pre-match entertainment.
This might seem a small point. But why are we using the disco lights to play random rock songs? Why not get them going to Celtic songs to enhance the atmosphere before the game. Or even the “into the jungle” song…….

Delighted to announce that I’m now in favour of the big daft lights at Celtic Park

How can Celtic better future lights show?
One criticism from above is that last night’s sequence went on too long.
Thunderstruck‘s run time is just under five minutes with a long intro – the peak of the song.
Perhaps a shorter tune more tailored towards the club would go down better with the fans.
Celtic should be commended for their choreography, coupling the lights and music together in symphony.
One personal bugbear is switching off the lights during You’ll Never Walk Alone during big European games.
The Hoops are known for the song around the world and it lessens it with not being seen.
It’s still early days with the lights and it’s good for these midweek Premiership games for trial and error.
