COUNCIL Give ‘Red Card’ To Plan For Large Rotating Screen Outside Celtic Park

CELTIC Football Club have been told they can’t put up a large rotating TV screen outside their ground.

Glasgow City Council has refused an application from the club for a 7.6-metre by 3.8-metre revolving LED display.

The screen, for showing adverts and live and recorded TV images, was to have been installed on an eight-metre high pole on an area to the right of the Celtic Way approach to the Parkhead stadium, beside the VIP car park.

City planners rejected the idea saying it would distract drivers on nearby London Road.

They also said it would form a “dominant and incongruous feature, to the detriment of visual amenity”.

The club have the right to appeal against the decision.
