Celtic have announced another sell-out at Paradise, for the visit of Ross County in the Scottish Premiership.

Although there are still red-zones in place, Celtic Park will host its entire allowed allocation for the Staggies’ trip to the East End of Glasgow.

This follows sell-outs against AZ Alkmaar [Celtic FC] and Jablonec in Europa League qualifying. For European ties to sell-out can be considered pretty normal. However, a league match against Ross County probably wouldn’t have been considered a sure thing by the club.

Nonetheless, the Bhoys confirmed it this morning. Celtic announced [Celtic FC]:

“With the return of league action just around the corner, the Celts are set to face Ross County in front of another sold-out home support!

“Having Paradise in full voice getting behind the team has been so crucial to the success on the pitch, and we cannot wait to have you back again this weekend!

“It’s a 3pm kick-off this Saturday (September 11), and the Bhoys will set out to claim all three points in front of Glasgow’s Green and White.”

The fans come in their thousands with Celtic Park a sell-out again

If you ask us, this makes a few things clear.

Firstly, the Celtic support are absolutely brilliant. Still in the midst of a pandemic, the fans are turning up to fill Paradise as much as possible.

Secondly, supporters are extremely on-board with what Ange Postecoglou is doing at Celtic. Despite the loss at Ibrox, there’s a good feeling around the club again. Especially with new signings to watch on Saturday.

Thirdly, it shows just how much we missed getting to matches. A year and a half, or thereabouts, without match-days was absolute torture. While it’s not the most important thing we’ve collectively dealt with over this torrid time, the return of Celtic fans to matches expresses just how much of a void a closed Paradise was over the course of the pandemic.

From the club’s perspective, it’s obviously great news. It’s also yet another endorsement for the manager. Additionally, it’ll no doubt be a great day for fans who make it into Celtic Park for a Saturday sell-out.
