 The Celtic SLO (Supporters Liaison Officer) has reiterated the message from the club for fans to stay at home ahead of the upcoming Glasgow Derby fixture on Sunday.

Supporters are encouraged not to attend the stadium on Sunday, alongside following the Scottish Government advice to ensure the event safely goes ahead as planned. Of course, security measures have been tightened by Celtic chiefs to minimise the spread of the virus that could be incurred by mass gatherings.

Recently, the Celts have been in positive official dialogue with the Scottish Government, to iron out concerns regarding the safety of followers of both clubs approaching the crunch fixture. Football has been affected considerably throughout the global pandemic, so confirmation of the game successfully being given the green light will come as a relief to everyone.

With a packed schedule between now and the end of May including the Scottish Cup resumption, any potential cancellation of the clash may have caused considerable distress for the Celtic hierarchy as well as the Scottish Football Association.

The Celts will be looking to get back to winning ways after a goalless draw away to Dundee United in their last outing. Encouragingly, a return to full fitness for talismanic figure James Forrest will provide a much needed boost to interim manager John Kennedy, as he plots to build an unbeaten run between now and the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Coming out victorious in the 12 noon kick-off would be the perfect tonic for the Celts to end the season strongly, hopefully we can all celebrate this reality from the comfort of our own home.

In other news, Celtic are showing interest in striker Aaron Boupendza.
