FOLLOWING this week’s announcement that a number of Hoops heroes are confirmed to appear at next month’s Celtic FC Festival, we’re pleased to confirm that fans attending on Saturday, July 27 will get the chance to hear from former Celtic striker, John Hartson!

Always a fan favourite, he’ll take to the Celtic View stage on the second day of the Festival to share tales of his time in the Hoops and to take questions from supporters.

The former Celt netted an impressive 110 goals in 201 appearances for the Bhoys during five years at the club and is always delighted to return to Glasgow and relive the memories of his time with Glasgow’s green and white.

Access to see John Hartson on the Celtic View stage is included in the ticket price for those attending the Festival on the Saturday.

He’ll also be available for fan photo opportunities at selfie stations throughout the day.

Tickets for the inaugural three day event at Glasgow’s SEC next month are on sale now and available to buy online at, priced £15 for adults, £12.50 for concessions, £7.50 for juniors (aged 6-16) and completely FREE OF CHARGE for kids aged under six.
