CELTIC fans have shared mixed emotions after the club announced the disco lights would return for Thursday's match against Raith Rovers.

The Hoops take on the Championship side in the quarter-finals of the Premier Sports Cup with a 7.45pm kick-off for a night under the lights.

The multi-million pound lighting rig was first purchased in 2018 for use in European and 'selected' domestic fixtures.

The state-of-the-art system was debuted in the Champions League clash with RB Leipzig three years ago and will be in use on Thursday.

The light show, which can begin from around 15 minutes before kick-off, plunges the stadium into darkness only illuminating the pitch with white and green lights.

Celtic confirmed the lights will be back in use from Thursday to 'get Paradise rocking' as the nights gradually get darker in Glasgow.

A tweet update read:  "It’s time to get Paradise rocking again! As the darker nights descend on Glasgow, we are bringing back the disco lights as the Hoops take on @RaithRovers on Thursday - tickets still available."

The announcement was met with a mixture of responses from the Parkhead faithful with some branding the announcement "embarrassing".

One fan commented: "Please delete this, we’re being laughed it".

Another wrote: "Who needs squad depth!? Get the lights on!"

A third replied: "How about bringing back a winning team first."

But a fourth said: "Paid for them, might as well use them!"
