Scotrail have announced that further strike action will affect Celtic supporters travelling to games over the next two weeks.

The Bhoys are back in Scottish Premiership action this weekend, and fans will be excited to get back to games following the international break.

The last time the Parkhead faithful were able to pack out the stadium was for the Hoops’ 3-0 loss to Real Madrid at the beginning of September. So it has been a long-awaited return.

North Lanarkshire side Motherwell will make the short trip down to the East End of Glasgow as Well fans prepare to watch their side back in action after a good start to life as Fir Park boss for Steven Hammell.

However, for supporters hoping to attend this weekend, it has been announced that there will be travel disruption around Celtic Park on the train services.

Following further strike action being taken by the RMT members of Network Rail, 40,000 members of staff will be walking out, causing big disruption to the usual Saturday train service [Edinburgh News].

For those looking to travel to Celtic Park by train this weekend, a limited timetable of services will be running, and more information can be found on the Scotrail website. However, none of these services will pass through either Bridgeton or Dalmarnock.

The latest strikes could also affect Celtic supporters looking to travel to next weekend’s away fixture against St Johnstone by train, with action being taken over the next two weekends.

Those attending both games who usually travel by this form of public transport will now have to look to further alternatives.

Many Celtic supporters may be prepared for this situation, having already handled a similar situation at an earlier point this season.

At this moment in time, disruption is likely to ease over the following few weekends. However, this could change, so Celtic fans will need to be keeping a close eye out for any updates from Scotrail ahead of future home games.
