Celtic v Morton Looks Likely With Celtic Park Pitch in Fine Condition Despite Snow

Celtic against Morton in the Scottish Cup this weekend looks likely to go ahead after seeing the condition of the Celtic Park pitch.

Snow has hammered Britain over the last few days, with Scotland being issued a red weather warning for the first time in its history yesterday.

Brendan Rodgers’ men were due to go up against Dundee in Glasgow last night, but the decision was taken earlier in the day to postpone that fixture.

Now, having seen the condition of the pitch, you have to assume that it’s the safety risk of those who would travel to the game that led to last night’s postponement.

But, it bodes well for Saturday, with Celtic set to welcome Morton to Celtic Park in the Scottish Cup.

Stadium manager Robin Buchanan shared the update about the pitch on Twitter this afternoon:

That’s a marked improvement on the image shared on Tuesday, with some snow having fallen on it before the heavy stuff really started in the east end of Glasgow.

And now fans may be able to look forward to a game on Saturday afternoon IF they can make out of their own homes to get to it.
