One Celtic Fan Appears to Get Lost Trying to Find East Kilbride’s Stadium

One Celtic Fan Appears to Get Lost Trying to Find East Kilbride’s Stadium

One Celtic fan claims to have had a bit of a nightmare in the lead up to today’s Scottish Cup tie against East Kilbride.

The Hoops were drawn to play the part-timers in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup, with confusion initially engulfing the tie due to East Kilbride’s K Park being unable to house the thousands of supporters who’d be looking to attend.

At first, Hamilton’s New Douglas Park was chosen as the stand-in venue, but Accies quickly pulled out, citing already-arranged events at their ground today.

So, after a hastily arranged meeting between the SFA’s bigwigs at Hampden, Airdrie’s the 10,000-seater Excelsior Stadium was eventually chosen to host the eagerly-anticipated, live televised match.

With that in mind, it appears one Hoops supporter didn’t get the memo:

We have no idea if his claim is genuine, and he may well be at the wind-up, but even so, it definitely gave us a wee chuckle as we watched the match.
