The sight of a full stadium tifo at Celtic Park last Saturday is one that will live long in the memory.
As the champions made their way on to the pitch, a giant mosaic covered all four stands of our wonderful stadium.
At one end was Willie Maley, at the other Jock Stein. Between them, the emphatic words: ‘Stand on the shoulders of giants.’
It was an epic display that arguably set the tone for a brilliant performance and victory for Ange Postecoglou‘s side.
At the time of writing, we haven’t had a cup final specific announcement from the ultras group.
MORE CELTIC STORIES
They have, however, referenced it in a previous statement.
In the lead up to the recent St. Mirren match, they posted via the North Curve Twitter feed about a bucket collection to raise funds.
They wrote: “With another cup final and a treble at Hampden looming, as well as another huge year ahead for the club next season, we have decided to organise a collection outside Celtic Park to raise further funds for the future.
“Every penny received will go towards tifo costs for the cup final and beyond.”
It is encouraging to hear that there are plans for another pre-match display this weekend, after no ‘organised tifo’ during the semi-final win over Rangers. (North Curve)
It should be a great sight for the players to walk out to, even more so with 40,000 odd Celtic fans inside the stadium.
The sun is to be shining. It should be a great day.
