CELTIC have confirmed that fans WILL need to be doubly-vaccinated against coronavirus to attend their next Europa League fixture. 

The Hoops take on Ferencvaros at the unusual kick-off time of 3.30pm on Tuesday, October 19.

And supporters attending will need to provide a vaccine passport to prove they're fully protected against Covid-19.

Celtic have provided an update to fans following the Scottish Government legislation change.

The new law - which have been delayed for three weeks - means that supporters must provide proof of their double-jabbed status at all stadiums across Scotland where the crowd is greater than 10,000.

A Hoops spokesperson said: "Celtic FC are obliged to follow Scottish Government legislation and would like to thank our supporters in advance for their patience, co-operation and understanding.

"Random spot checks will be carried out by stewards on approach to Celtic Park, in line with this Scottish Government guidance and all supporters attending must be prepared to provide proof of vaccination or exemption.

"Please ensure you arrive as early as possible on matchday to avoid any delays in entering the stadium while these checks take place."

Fans will be able to show passport by printing a certificate, showing a digital copy of their status or downloading the NHS Scotland Covid check app.

Supporters who are exempt from a vaccination must be prepared to provide evidence of this. These groups included: Under the age of 18, not able to get the vaccine for medical reasons, taking part in vaccine trials and matchday employees and volunteers.
