CELTIC are hoping for the green light from the Scotttish Government to allow fans back into Parkhead for the Premiership game against Motherwell a week tomorrow.

The visit of the Fir Park outfit has been earmarked as the first pilot event as the top flight prepares to welcome back a limited amount of spectators, according to a report in the Daily Record.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed that fans can begin returning to grounds from September 14, as CQN reported yesterday.

Talks between the football authorities and the Holyrood chiefs are set to continue over the next 24 hours as the details of how to get followers back inside grounds are worked out.

It is hoped that around 1,000 fans will be allowed in to see the game against Stephen Robinson’s side.

The Hoops last figured in a domestic game outwith the current lockdown on March 7 when 58.998 watched them beat St Mirren 5-0 before football went into cold storage due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Leigh Griffiths netted a hat-trick, Odsonne Edouard hammered in his 28th goal of the campaign and Callum McGregor claimed the last strike of the campaign with a penalty-kick.
