Celtic fans are planning a mass gathering outside Hampden this Sunday to help support their club ahead of the Scottish Cup final.

The Green Brigade plan to roar on their stars from the Aikenhead Road entrance to the stadium at midday to welcome the team bus into the grounds before their clash with Hearts at 2.15pm.

It comes as a direct opposite to the furious protests that have plagued the club in recent months. Manager Neil Lennon was victim of fan demands for his sacking after a 2-0 loss to Ross County and dropped points at home to St Johnstone.

But now, with the quadruple Treble at stake, fans have promised to put aside their frustrations for the big game on Sunday and provide the players and management staff with the support they need.

A tweet read: "When the Celts go up to lift the Scottish Cup, we'll be there Welcome the team Hampden (Aikenhead Rd entrance) 12 o'clock."

It is not yet known what police presence there will be at the national stadium. Though, if Parkhead in recent weeks is anything to go by, there will be a significant number in attendance. Barriers have been in place at Celtic Park to keep out angry protesters. Then there is the matter of adhering to Covid-19 safety protocols.
