A FORMER media room at Celtic Park is set to be turned into a hospitality suite ahead of next season.

Glasgow’s licensing board has granted permission for Celtic to sell alcohol from a room on the fourth floor of the North Stand.

The club applied to vary its premises licence as it looks to “enhance the matchday offer for the fans”.

Licensing lawyer Stephen McGowan, representing Celtic, told the board: “It is referred to as the LSV suite which is shorthand for light, sound and visual.

“It used to be a press room where the press pack had their technical wizardry. They were moved so it has become an empty space, and the club’s looking to try to do something with that space.”

He added the “relatively modest” suite would be able to accommodate 20 people and the club’s staff are “very experienced at operating these types of areas”.

Mr McGowan said the club was planning to have the suite ready for the start of next season.
