A Glasgow tour company is launching a brand-new bus route featuring Celtic Park and Ibrox stadiums.

City Sightseeing Glasgow will expand its offering to include a new 'yellow' route arriving on May 17.

The hop-on-hop-off bus will cover 19 new locations in the East End and Southside including Tennent's Brewery, Barrowlands, Emirates Stadium, Tramway, Pollok Park, the Burrell Collection, House for an Art Lover and Glasgow Science Centre. 

Football fans can stop at Celtic and Rangers' home grounds to learn more about the rich and exciting histories of both clubs. 

Glasgow Times:

A spokesperson for Celtic said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with City Sightseeing Glasgow this summer to welcome visitors to Celtic Park, Scotland’s biggest and best football stadium.

“The Celtic story is a famous one - a club formed in the heart of the East End of Glasgow which has delivered success after success, with the finest moment of course when Celtic became the first club in Britain to win the greatest prize of all, the European Cup.

“It is great news that the new route will allow many more visitors to see this story for themselves, to be part of our matches, our stadium tours, to dine at the stadium or to shop at Celtic Park - to really experience one of world football’s truly iconic clubs.

“We look forward to welcoming more and more guests to Celtic Park.” 

Glasgow Times:

A spokesperson for Rangers said: “We are delighted to welcome the new yellow route’s stop at Ibrox. 

"Fans and visitors alike will now have the opportunity to conveniently explore Ibrox Stadium, home to the famous Rangers Football Club.

"Learn about the club’s achievements and rich 151-year history.   

“A ticket to the museum and stadium tour is a must for any Glasgow tourist or football enthusiast, ready to take in the atmosphere of the iconic main stand, trophy room and gain an insight into the club’s remarkable success and culture throughout the south side of Glasgow.

"Score your tickets in advance to be part of the Rangers story.”

Travellers will also be able to access Govan, Strathbungo, Shawlands and the Battlefield area as well as Hampden Football Stadium in the yellow route, which will initially operate as a summer tour, running from May to September. 

The new route comes in addition to City Sightseeing's original red route tour, which operates all year round and covers landmarks such as Glasgow Cathedral, Glasgow Green, Clydeside Distillery, the Riverside Museum, Glasgow University and Kelvingrove Art Gallery.  

Glasgow Times:

City Sightseeing Glasgow’s operations manager, Richy Graham, said: "We are delighted to launch our new yellow route and showcase a host of popular attractions and venues as well as some of the lesser known but equally fascinating parts of the city.  

He added: "Our hop-on-hop-off tours are a great way to explore the city at your own pace.

"Whether you want to learn more about Glasgow’s industrial heritage, diverse culture, music scene, sports venues or art collections, there is something for everyone on our tour. We look forward to welcoming visitors on board our new yellow route this summer." 

Glasgow Times:

Aileen Crawford, Head of Tourism and Conventions at Glasgow Life, added: “As the lead for Tourism and Events for the city, Glasgow Life congratulates City Sightseeing for creating access to the fabulous venues and neighbourhoods of the Southside and East End with the new Yellow route.” 

The tour lasts up to 90 minutes and will operate every 30 minutes from 10am to 4pm, seven days a week. 

Prices start from £15 for adults and £8 for children.
