The redevelopment of the Barrowfield site, located near to Celtic Park, would see Celtic unveil another training facility, including one of the largest indoor football arenas in Scotland, featuring a Fifa approved top of the range full sized artificial surface.

It will also feature a state-of-the-art gymnasium, as well as brand new extended parking and changing facilities.

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

The facility will allow the Celtic first-team to train indoors in cases of poor weather. The complex will also be used by the club's women's and academy teams.
