Glasgow: Celtic to introduce safe standing 'It's time' – seems to be the motto at Parkhead as Celtic declare will to change some of their seating into safe standing. Law allows every club of the Scottish Premier League to do that, but no stadium operator introduced standing so far.


There's no specific time frame to it, but Celtic FC declare they're willing to test safe standing solutions at their stadium soon.

Chief executive Peter Lawwell said: “We feel there is a new vibrancy in football that has come from Europe and is now in the UK. It's an energy and youthfulness and the safest way of being able to manage that is through safe standing.

“These are new systems that have come in place that are extremely safe and we are very keen to explore that at Celtic Park.”

Scottish law allows terracing inside stadiums and since late 2011 so do the football governing bodies. Still, no Scottish Premier League club so far decided to implement a pilot section for standing fans.
