Celtic Park has been chosen as the host venue for rugby’s Guinness PRO14 final, as the showpiece event is held outside of a tradition rugby venue for the first time in its history.
Over the course of the summer, Celtic’s hierarchy have been working hard behind the scenes to improve certain aspects of their Parkhead stadium, with around £4 million forked out on a new pitch and a state-of-the-art lighting system.
And it appears the renovations have played a part in the PRO14 final selecting its next venue, with the Championship decider returning to Scotland for the first time since 2016.
The Hoops revealed the news on their Twitter feed earlier today, in conjunction with the PRO14 Rugby account:

Now that Celtic Park has been deemed fit enough to host a glamorous rugby final, could they soon be chosen to host a Europa League or Champions League final in the not too distant future?
