CELTIC Football Club has announced major redevelopment plans of its training centre in the East End of Glasgow.

The club has applied for planning permission for a change of the Barrowfield site, near Celtic Park.

Bosses say the change would see Celtic unveil a top training facility, including one of the largest indoor football arenas in Scotland, featuring a FIFA-approved, top-of-the-range, full-sized artificial surface.

The new project will also feature a state-of-the-art gymnasium, as well as new parking and changing facilities.

A further phase of the redevelopment would also see the construction of new refreshment and grandstand facilities for spectators.

The new indoor facility will allow training opportunities, particularly in poor weather for the Celtic First Team.

The complex will also be used by Celtic’s women’s teams and all Academy teams.

Overall, the new site will feature two full-sized outdoor grass pitches, two top artificial pitches, both outdoor and indoor, as well as an outdoor warm-up area.

The new development will come on top of Celtic's established First Team Training base at Lennoxtown, which was opened in 2007.
