The Baton will complete its journey which has spanned nearly 288 days, 70 Commonwealth nations and territories and tens of thousands of bearers at Celtic Park tonight.

Before the big kick-off some of the stars of the Games got a chance to hold the Baton at the Athletes' Village in Glasgow's East End.
