Here to see Brendan Rodgers... or Rangers? Celtic season ticket sales are booming...
Celtic fans in the stadium await the arrival of New Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers after the press conference

Season ticket sales are booming, with the Daily Record reporting how fans scrambled to get to Celtic Park yesterday to buy them, queuing all day to pick them up as they went on general sale.
Celtic - Brendan Rodgers Press Conference
