Celtic are set to purchase £100,000 worth of land from Glasgow City Council, The Glasgow Times report.

The paper say that the Hoops have approached the authority to purchase a patch of land at Janefield Street in order to provide matchday parking for disabled supporters.

The currently vacant lot has previously had short-term licences granted for parking purposes but hasn’t been used for a number of years.

Councillors have been recommended to approve the six-figure sale, with a report to the council stating: “The proposed purchaser is seeking to acquire the land at Janefield Street to create dedicated disabled car parking.

“The football club’s disabled section is located in the north west corner of the stadium. The entrance to this section lies adjacent to the site.”


The Glasgow Times say a direct condition of the sale is that it must only be used for this purpose.

Celtic are constantly looking to invest in infrastructure improvements at Celtic Park and beyond to the benefit of the club and its supporters.

This news follows on from plans revealed by the club last summer to drastically improve the facilities at Barrowfield for our youth and women’s teams.

The club will build one of the largest indoor football arenas in Scotland, featuring a FIFA approved top of the range full-sized artificial surface as well as state-of-the-art gym facilities and ultimately outdoor pitches too.

At the stadium, the club have also invested in safe standing and new lighting to enhance the matchday experience.

Hopefully this latest purchase allows our disabled fans to have the access they need to watch Neil Lennon’s Hoops fight their way towards more trophies.
