CELTIC have appointed a dedicated Disability Liaison Officer to provide a point of contact for the Scottish champions’ disabled supporters.

The club announced on Wednesday that Alexis Dobbin has been handed the role after spending more than 25 years with the club.

Dobbin will work to ensure that all disabled spaces are utilised, and supporters have been encouraged to engage with the club in order to ensure that spaces are filled if season ticket holders are unable to attend games.

The Disability Liaison Officer will be present on matchdays in the North Stand and work with all club departments to support fans with disabilities.

A club statement read: “We hope that our supporters will view this new dedicated support as a positive step. At all times, we aim to provide as much as support and assistance to our disabled fans.

“We understand and value the commitment all our fans bring to Celtic and we will always do everything we can to ensure that our supporters have the best experience possible at Celtic Park.”
