Celtic will give fans the chance to celebrate the remarkable achievement of three successive trebles this summer. The club will give supporters three ways in which they can bask in the glory ahead of the start of a new campaign.
Season ticket holders will be given the opportunity, both next week and the following, to get their photograph taken with the three trophies the team currently hold. They say “the trophies will be set up in the Kerrydale Suite” with a “booking system” in place.
The club also say they are “looking forward to the next chance to celebrate together”. That will come on July 13th when Celtic host Rennes. They say that celebrations will continue that day when the Coupe De France holders arrive for a friendly.
Finally, they say that the Treble Treble open top bus will be around at the Celtic Festival. It takes place over four days at the end of July at the SEC in Glasgow. Fans will get the chance to get on the bus and get their photos taken.
Does this make up for failed bus parade?
Probably not, but it does at least show that the club are trying to celebrate the achievement. Maybe it’s time to cut them a little slack on this one.
The botched parade on May 25th was down to the police and so called safety concerns. The club will have had little say as the matter wasn’t at Celtic Park. Fans wanted to see some sort of replacement celebration party but it didn’t happen for whatever reason.
They weren’t helped by the Pro 14 rugby final being at Celtic Park, nor the fact that most players would have had holiday plans to jet off to in the days following the match.
Celtic fans would have loved a big party with the players just like last year but it wasn’t to be. At least the club are being seen to be doing something now.
