Celtic supporters show big backing for players at Lennoxtown with pyro and banner ahead of derby
Celtic fans have visited the club’s training centre at Lennoxtown this morning to show support for the players during their Saturday session ahead of Ibrox.
Ange Postecoglou’s stars are going through their final preparations for the trip to face Rangers tomorrow lunchtime and were greeted by singing, pyro and banners outside the fences.
Twitter user Daniel Hughes shared one of the images this morning, where players can be seen going towards the group of fans to take in the passion.
Other images show a massive banner unveiled which says “We Don’t – Stop!” echoing the words of the manager in his very first training session at the club last summer, which the club published footage of.
Celtic will have to cope with a fierce atmosphere at Ibrox tomorrow with a huge imbalance in the number of home and away supporters. Just 700 Celtic fans will be in attendance in the corner.
However, the players will know how much support they have and moments like this certainly help. Even having a small group of fans in the stadium will be a reminder of the thousands watching on who have their back this season.
Postecoglou has brought a real sense of unity to the club. It’s been thrilling to watch the bond grow between supporters, coaching staff and players throughout the campaign.
With just a handful of games left, it’s now time to make that count on and off the pitch.
It’s fantastic to see fans take the extra effort this morning and hopefully it was inspiring to the players.
