Celtic Park opened in 1892 and the current capacity is 60,500+ seats. However in 1937 Celtic played Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden Park, 147,365+ people went to the game and that was the club attendance record.
Celtic have won many trophies, league titles and competitions so far, for example they have won the Scottish title 45 times, Scottish Cup 25 times, Scottish League Cup 14 times and the European Cup once in 1967, the first ever British team to win that competition. The team won their first Scottish league title in 1893 and won it again the following season. Their first piece of silverware was won at Ibrox stadium where they beat Queens Park 5-2 to take the Scottish FA cup. When they won the European cup the game was played in Lisbon and after the game the team was known as the the Lisbon Lions by some fans. The most recent time they won the Scottish title was last season (2013-2014). The manager was Neil Lennon.
The season coming. Celtic have a new manager, Ronny Deila. He has signedsome new players, John Guidette being the new star striker. They have signed him from Manchester City as well as Jason Denayer, “the new Kompany”. He plays centre back beside Van Dijk. The players that left last season were Samaras, Tony Watt and the biggest one was Fraser Forster who went to Southampton following the likes of Victor Wanyama who left two seasons ago.In conclusion, some of the facts we have learned are that Celtic Park has over 60,500 seats. We also looked at the silverware that the team have won where we learned that they won the Scottish league over 40 times and we looked at the coming season were we learned that Ronny Deila signed the Man City striker Guidette.
