Celtic have been dealt a blow from the Scottish Government as they have had their attempts at bringing back around 1000 fans to attend the club’s match on Sunday against Motherwell at Parkhead, rejected.

The Scottish Champions tried to persuade officials into letting them test the new match day protocols that will eventually be used in a few weeks time.

Scottish Rugby has already been given permission to stage a similar test event and will host the return of 700 fans to Murrayfield Stadium on Friday for a Pro14 match between Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors.

The fact that Bolingoli breached protocols a few weeks ago probably didn’t help Celtic’s case either, all clubs around the country are desperate for fans to start attending live games again as its had a huge impact on their main source of income.

For fans to start attending games again, all clubs must be vigilant and follow all the rules down to a tee as one instance of neglect will be catastrophic for Scottish Football.
