  • Brendan hits all the right notes with fans

    Brendan hits all the right notes with fans

    By: Newsroom Staff on 08 Mar, 2018 15:01

  • FOR many years Celtic has been delighted to work with our visually-impaired supporters who take their place in the main stand at Celtic Park each matchday, bringing fantastic support to the Club. 

    In association with our visually-impaired supporters' section,  a match commentary service has been provided to our visually-impaired fans, bringing the match to life for so many supporters. 

    Now the club aims to add to the experience at Paradise by providing new audio, direct from Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers. Brendan has kindly agreed to provide an audio recording of his matchday programme notes at games, to welcome our visually-impaired fans to Celtic Park and introduce the day’s action.

    The audio will kick off the day’s action for around 70 fans who take their seats each match in our main stand.    

    Brendan Rodgers said: “I am delighted to do this for our fans, and  if, in any way it can help add to the matchday experience for our supporters, then that is great news.   

    "Like many managers in football, I have always felt my programme notes are a very important way to welcome our fans to the stadium, to set the scene for that particular match and explain to our supporters my thoughts on the game.   

    “We are so grateful to all the fans in this section who come to the match, sit behind our dug out week in, week out and support the club so passionately. Clearly, these supporters face challenges, but they do so with such courage and such spirit.

    "Each and every one of our supporters in this section deserves enormous praise for their commitment to Celtic and the way they support the club, and I am delighted to become involved in this initiative, which will hopefully add to their experience at Celtic Park.”

    Jim Lewis, who, for 30 years has managed the Visually-Impaired Supporters' Group at Celtic Park added: “It is very positive the way our visually-impaired supporters are being treated and how well they are being looked after. 

    "Once other clubs see what Celtic are doing they will follow, but Celtic are one step ahead. It is fantastic that the club and Brendan Rodgers are connecting with the supporters in our section. It shows the manager is not just looking after the players but he’s looking around him and looking after the supporters as well."

    Celtic's next home game will be on Saturday, March 31 against Ross County (KO: 3pm)
