Celtic should find out officially tomorrow whether or not they can welcome supporters back to matches when the Scottish Premiership restarts next week.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will be providing a formal update to the Scottish Parliament on the latest stats and figures relating to the pandemic and Scotland at around 2pm.

As reported by The Scotsman, she is also expected to provide an update on whether or not current restrictions will be extended past January 17th or not. Part of that is in relation to crowds at football, which are currently limited to 500 people.

Scottish football chiefs did not get a further indication on the Scottish Government’s restriction intentions over the weekend, The Daily Record reported this morning.

However, it’s also said there is no reason to think we wouldn’t see some sort of fan return from midnight on January 16th.

Celtic host Hibernian next Monday evening and if the green light is given tomorrow, there will be close to a capacity crowd.

Excitement is again building about Ange Postecoglou’s project at the Bhoys. With no football for weeks, there should be tens of thousands in the door to welcome new signings into the team and other players back from injury.

The match isn’t selected for TV coverage either, meaning season ticket holders would be limited to the Pass To Paradise if shut out.

Fingers crossed the figures are moving in the right direction and we all get the news we want tomorrow.
