CELTIC yesterday unveiled plans to build a hotel, museum and retail complex next to their Parkhead stadium, as hinted on CQN a few days ago.
The hotel would be based on London Road, outside the main stand of Celtic Park and across the road from the Emirates Arena – a velodrome and multi-sports arena originally constructed for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
A club statement said: “The application is part of Celtic’s long-standing masterplan for the area, a vision which aims to deliver benefits to the club and our supporters and allow further regeneration of the East End of the city, something to which we are totally committed.
“There would be a number of challenges to overcome to complete a development of this scale.
“Celtic aims to be a world-class football club in everything it does. We are pleased to have made significant investment in recent years to develop the stadium and public realm area for the benefit of our supporters.
“Any further development of this kind would be a hugely positive step for the club, for our supporters and for the local community.”
