Brendan Rodgers to Provide a Recording of His Programme Notes for the Visually Impaired

Brendan Rodgers to Provide a Recording of His Programme Notes for the Visually Impaired

Brendan Rodgers is set to record his programme notes for home matches, so they can be heard by Celtic Park’s visually-impaired supporters’ section.

Celtic already provide a match commentary service for the visually impaired, with each fan being provided with an individual headset.

However, the club are now looking to improve on this match-day experience, with a little help from Rodgers.

The Celtic manager’s programme notes, which are used as a tool to welcome every supporter to the stadium, will now be recorded and broadcast through the headsets before kick-off.

And Rodgers is delighted that he’s been afforded the chance to get involved.

Speaking via Celtic’s website, Rodgers said, “If, in any way it can help add to the matchday experience for our supporters, then that is great news.

“Like many managers in football, I have always felt my programme notes are a very important way to welcome our fans to the stadium, to set the scene for that particular match and explain to our supporters my thoughts on the game. “

He added, “We are so grateful to all the fans in this section who come to the match, sit behind our dug out week in, week out and support the club so passionately.”

“Clearly, these supporters face challenges, but they do so with such courage and such spirit.”

It’s expected that the audio version of the programme notes will be made available for Celtic’s next home game, against Ross County on March 31.

Hats off to the Hoops for this one, brilliant!
