Glasgow: Celtic put ultras relocation on hold Despite already announcing the closure of Section 111 at Celtic Park, the club has now agreed to let the Green Brigade ultras retain their spot. Future decisions will however be made on a match-by-match analysis.

First information on the issue was revealed yesterday and now is followed by Celtic FC statement on the issue of safety in Section 111. Earlier in July this corner of Celtic Park was judged unsafe due to crowd behaviour and announced closed in August.

Now it seems both sides, having very tense relations for at least a few months, reached an understanding as the section is to remain open.

However, the club said on Friday: "Following extensive and positive discussions with supporters' representatives for the section, the club has received assurances relating to previously raised safety concerns and unsafe behaviour within the stadium.

"Celtic has engaged with the Glasgow City Council Safety Advisory Group regarding this matter and they have noted these assurances.

"This matter will be monitored on an ongoing, match-by-match, basis by both the club and the safety advisory group.

"Celtic Football Club would like to re-iterate its commitment and responsibility to ensuring the safety of everyone who visits Celtic Park. It is our absolute priority.

"The club is pleased to have engaged in positive dialogue in relation to this matter.

"We thank the safety advisory group and supporters' representatives for their continued co-operation and we look forward to working together to ensure a safe environment in the stadium."
