Match: Glasgow Celtic v Manchester City

Published: 24/11/2016

 

The supporters coach dropped us off right outside the main entrance to the stadium, however, we were told that we could not be picked up from here and were given directions to the coach park which was approximately a 15 minute walk away.

 

There was no signs to direct us to the disabled area, we asked a policeman who did not know where we were to go, but eventually a steward who worked for Celtic came over and took us the entrance gate.

 

We were sat a pitch level, more or less in line with the corner flag. Disabled toilets were nearby, but there was no access to the food and drink area for me, my carer had to go up some steps to reach the concourse.

 

The view of the game was disgraceful, we saw approximately 20% of the game as we had our view blocked by advertising boards, stewards, Policemen and cameramen.

 

After the game, all Manchester City fans were kept inside the stadium for 15 minutes. We had difficulties in finding the coach park, but luckily a Manchester City steward came and found us and walked back to the coach park with us.

 

The atmosphere at the stadium was just incredible, but I wouldn’t go back here as I would not be able to see the game.

First of all there was a problem with parking.The Police had erected one of their new steel walls, blocking access to the car park long before the hour before cut off time for entry into the car park. No warning was given that they intended to do this.


Celtic did not supply Rangers with tickets for the wheelchair section in the upper tier. Three people did manage to get into the upper tier before the stewards noticed but they then stopped anybody else was getting up there. Myself and another Rangers wheelchair fan Graham MacIntyre tried reasoning with them but to no avail however they could not provide a credible explanation for denying us access to the upper tier.

William Paterson, Rangers Fan

Match: Rangers wheelchair area v Celtic 24.10.10

Published: 3/6/2013

 

On previous visits to Parkhead I was unfortunate enough to be stuck down in the Lower Section. I think one extremely important point that must be addressed with Celtic is their appearing reluctance to issue Rangers fans tickets for the six wheelchair spaces in the Upper Section of the Lisbon Lions Stand. Access to the Upper Section is a lottery depending entirely on the chance of meeting the right steward at the right time before the match otherwise the six wheelchair spaces lay vacant. Perhaps CAFE could ask Celtic to look into this on our behalf?

 

You get so annoyed and wound up remonstrating with the stewards and police. The stewards and police are essential and have a very important job to do but when they stand like that the only people whose views are obscured are the wheelchair fans. The stewards at the stools sit there for the entire match except when they stand up along with reinforcements from the tunnel whenever there is a corner, free kick in the area, a goal etc…. then go back to being seated however this scenario is played out umpteen times a game.
