A club statement read: "Supporters attending the match versus Ferencvarosi TC at Celtic Park are advised that updated government legislation is now in place.

"This new legislation means that any supporter attending matches at Celtic Park (and other stadia with crowds of 10,000 or more) should be fully vaccinated and be prepared to provide visual proof of this to gain entry to the stadium, unless exempt.

"Celtic FC are obliged to follow Scottish Government legislation and would like to thank our supporters in advance for their patience, co-operation and understanding."
