Video: Celtic Fans Already Inside Windsor Park.. and They Have Banners

Celtic fans are already inside Windsor Park for tonight’s game against Linfield – and they have banners.

The Hoops decided that they wouldn’t take a ticket allocation for the Champions League qualifying second round first leg in Belfast tonight.

There had been fears over safety for travelling supporters and that’s why both Celtic and Linfield agreed that no tickets would be sold to fans of the Scottish club.

But Linfield confirmed today that any Celtic fans who did manage to get tickets would be housed in a separate part of the stadium away from the home support.

And that’s what has happened, with some of the Celtic faithful inside the stadium over an hour before kick-off – and they came with banners:

That will be disappointing for other supporters, who decided not to travel to the game, to see ahead of the team’s first competitive match of the season.

Celtic will be hoping they can put the lack of fans to one side and produce a big performance and result to set them up for next week’s second leg in Glasgow.

If the Scottish champions manage to beat Linfield over two legs they’ll go up against either Dundalk or Rosenborg.
