Fresh look for Celtic Park on the way this month; work begins

Some of the massive banners adorning the outside of Celtic Park have been taken down today ahead of a refresh over the next couple of weeks.

Celtic introduced stadium banners to Paradise way back in 2015, giving visitors and supporters a look at some of the brilliant successes in club history. It often provided a stunning backdrop, especially at night.

Twitter user @elliearmstrong uploaded a picture from the stadium today, which showed the Lisbon Lions stand unadorned.

Recently the banners have begun to show signs of wear and age, so it makes sense the club would look to update them. This summer seems like the perfect opportunity with Champions League football on the way once again.

It’s understood work will take place at the stadium over the next couple of weeks, with areas being fenced off for contractors to complete the task.

It’s unclear what kind of imagery will go up as a replacement but hopefully it continues to feature plenty of golden moments from down the years at the Bhoys. Ange Postecoglou’s presence also seems likely.

The big slogan “Paradise – Where Legends Are Made” was very popular with supporters. The previous design was created by Frame, a Glasgow-based creative marketing agency.

It all comes as change also arrives to the club’s media and marketing departments. Long-serving staff member Kerry Keenan has moved on from her role as head of those areas. Kevin McQuillan, her predecessor, returns to the position with a start date later this month.

Celtic’s brand remains strong and another stint in Europe’s big UEFA competition will be further proof of that over the coming six months.

We can’t wait to see what the club have in store.

In other news, Celtic just started to pave the way for a brilliant summer.
