The Celtic supporters and shareholders group, the Celtic Trust called for an “urgent and comprehensive” review saying that fans using a wheelchair or who are visually impaired are positioned at pitch level for games and, no matter how bad the weather, there is “no shelter”. The Trust said the stadium lacks lifts, making access to seats “difficult” for fans who are not fit due to advancing age or illness.
Proposed road closures by police – for security – are set to make life even more difficult for disabled spectators.
The board said:
The club is committed to continuing to improve facilities and is happy to undertake a review with the CDSA, report to the CDSA on progress and to schedule a programme of improvements to be carried out in the close season of 2018.
