Celtic fans’ plan for when team bus arrives at Hampden Park ahead of Scottish Cup final

Celtic fans’ plan for when team bus arrives at Hampden Park ahead of Scottish Cup final later this weekend has been revealed.

The Green Brigade are planning a mass gathering outside the country’s national stadium this Sunday to help support their club to glory of a competition yet to finish from last season.

Celtic fans’ plan to cheer their players from the Aikenhead Road entrance to the Hampden Park stadium around lunchtime to welcome the team bus into the grounds before their much anticipated Scottish Cup fixture with Hearts at 2.15pm.

It’s the opposite response from the fanbase to the furious protests that have been taunted towards the club in recent months.

Fans demanded that manager Neil Lennon was sacked following their 2-0 defeat to Ross County and dropped points at home to St Johnstone.

However, now that they could get a quadruple Treble, Celtic fans are willing to forget how bad things have got for the 2020/21 season and cast their minds back to how good things were for the 2019/20 campaign, and it’s fair to say the players and management staff need all the support they can get to win the Scottish Cup.

A tweet by North Curve Celtic read: “When the Celts go up to lift the Scottish Cup, we’ll be there Welcome the team Hampden (Aikenhead Rd entrance) 12 o’clock.”

Footage has been put up along with the tweet, which has gone on to be retweeted over 200 times and ‘liked’ 1,400 times.

It is not yet known whether police presence will be at Hampden Park. Though, if Parkhead in recent weeks is anything to go by, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if will be a significant number.

Barriers have previously been in place at Celtic Park to keep out angry protesters. Then there is the matter of adhering to Covid-19 safety protocols.


In light of the ongoing speculation regarding the position of our football manager, Neil Lennon, the Board of Celtic Football Club wishes to make clear its continuing support for Neil and his backroom team.

The Board recognises and understands the importance of winning the league championship this season and that, as Neil himself has made clear, recent performances and results have been disappointing. The Board is committed to delivering success for Celtic supporters.

The Board has carefully considered the current circumstances and the challenges that we are faced with, not least the pressure on the management and players to deliver the tenth championship in a row that is so important to us all. Equally important is to continue to operate according to our Club’s values. The Board has come to the conclusion that our collective objective is best served by continuing to support Neil and his team as they seek solutions for those challenges.

Neil has the support of the players and staff at the Club. He understands the pressure and the environment. As his outstanding record as a manager, captain and player demonstrates, he knows what it takes to be successful at Celtic and he has delivered success with many of the current squad of players, who understand his method and approach.

Whilst it has been suggested that it is time for a change, at this stage in the season the Board believes that Neil and his management team are best placed to turn the team’s performances around and lead us on to success. The Board continues to work closely with Neil and his team to support them as they seek to do so and progress will be reviewed in the new year.

The Board wishes to take this opportunity to thank all Celtic supporters for their support during this challenging year. The response of the support to the challenges that we all face together has been magnificent. It is therefore important to make clear that the Board has never, as it has been inaccurately reported, referred to any Celtic supporter as ‘entitled’.

The Board recognises the range of views expressed by our supporters and the strength of those opinions. Whilst there may not always be agreement, there is certainly a common goal – the success of Celtic Football Club – and we will continue to work together to seek to achieve that success.


Alongside a picture of the banner which read, “save the ten – time to go Neil”, the Green Brigade released a statement on Twitter late November.

It read: “Neil Lennon and many of the current Celtic squad have delivered unprecedented success for our club and deserve enormous credit for their achievements.

“However, past accomplishments are not enough to excuse the level of performance and lack of desire we have endured throughout this momentous season.

The Green Brigade held the banner up outside Celtic Park

“Despite having the best squad in the country, the football on display has been dismal, lacking in ideas and belief.

“Many of our best players have disappointed and we have performed poorly both domestically and in European competition, winning only two games from our previous eight.

“Whilst we would love nothing more than to see Neil Lennon win us the championship, we are part of a growing element of the Celtic support that has sadly concluded that he is unable to turn our season around.

“After a decade of unrivalled footballing and financial dominance it is disappointing to find ourselves 11 points off the league summit and virtually out of the Europa League, having failed to make it past even the second round of qualification for the Champions League.

“We appreciate all that Neil Lennon has done for the club and endured in his time in Scotland.

“However there is simply too much at stake to persevere in hope rather than expectation, and a managerial change needs to be made.

“Celtic Football Club is bigger than us all and the good of the club must come first.

“Peter Lawwell and the Celtic board must act now in a bid to save 10-in-a-row as well as their own legacies.

“Should they fail to deliver this title, it will be them who are held to account.”

@kyleRC_: Celtic is a team with plastics for supporters 100%. Shouting for new Manager and “bored” and as soon as they win 2 games then they’re just as good as the Lisbon Lions

@ggh1992: Clap them in to the stadium n chase them back out

@smcg72_: If they lose best believe riots will be happening and this tweet will be deleted

@stephdavis32: Back to rioting if they get beat don’t worry about that

@KrisGold9: These cvnts don’t know if they are coming or going

@DMM97____: Forgot that we are in middle of a pandemic and probably going to go back into a full lockdown again in a few weeks…. Idiots.
