Celtic supporters will be in fine voice this evening against St Mirren, as the club have announced yet another sell-out in the 21-22 campaign.

The Bhoys face the Buddies at Paradise tonight, and it’ll be a big crowd that meets the teams coming out of the famous Parkhead tunnel. According to the club, anyone hoping to secure a standard ticket for tonight is out luck.

The club’s ticket page announced on Twitter:

If you’re noticing a running theme this season, you are far from alone. The club have repeatedly sold out SPFL Premiership fixtures this season, and it’s no surprise why.

For one thing, we’re locked in a title race, with three points to our benefit. Secondly, we’re still not far removed from a time when fans were locked out of stadia. Third, it’s just amazing fun watching Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic. Especially for evening fixtures, with the lights on at Parkhead.

Tonight sees new St Mirren boss Stephen Robinson return to the Celtic away dugout. Previously, with Motherwell, Robinson had taken the ‘Well to two cup finals against Celtic, losing both [Sky Sports]. It was also Robinson who nurtured the talent of David Turnbull, last season’s Celtic Player of the Year.

Without many games left, it’s a crucial time for Celtic, so backing from supporters is absolutely crucial against St Mirren

We’ve seen on plenty of occasions this season that the support makes a difference.

Even though it was now a month ago, it’s hard not to think of that stirring win over Rangers at Celtic Park. The atmosphere was absolutely incredible, just as it was against Bodo/Glimt, another mid-week fixture under the Paradise lights.

Of course, 3pm kick-offs on the weekend are special. There’s just something about Paradise at night, though, that really seems to bring out the best in the supporters.

With another crucial 3 points at stake, Ange Postecoglou’s men need to find goals. Against Hibernian, the Hoops were left frustrated, as Shaun Maloney’s men kept it compact against a dynamic Celtic front-line. Robinson will surely have been taking notes.

Earlier this season, St Mirren kept it goalless against Celtic in quite bizarre circumstances. Just ahead of the winter break, the club had to shut down training in advance of meeting Celtic. The Hoops, though, couldn’t get it done in Paisley that night.

With revenge on the cards, and a noisy Celtic Park behind them, it’s all on the Bhoys now as St Mirren await.
