The Green Brigade today unveiled a huge banner to commemorate the Easter Rising.

The Celtic fan group prepared a display stretching across the stand ahead of the match against Livingston in West Lothian.

The display featured lyrics from Freedom's Sons alongside the faces of seven prominent figures - who were executed for their involvement - in the Irish uprising against British rule.

The major display - which featured the faces of Patrick Pearse, James Connolly, Tom Clarke, Seán Mac Diarmada, Joseph Plunkett, Éamonn Ceannt and Thomas MacDonagh - read: "Born into slavery they were freedom's sons".

North Curve Celtic had urged supporters to be inside the stadium early to assist with the pitch-long display.

A post on X, formerly Twitter, read: "The Green Brigade has arranged a tifo for today's match.

"Fans are kindly asked to make the effort to arrive early and to use the material at your seat as the team emerges from the tunnel."

Meanwhile, the Green Brigade will be permitted entry to the SWPL match between Celtic and Hearts next month.

The group had vowed to boycott the match after the "vindictive" decision to deny the Celtic End.

However, the club have stated the Green Brigade will be allowed into the match within the rail seating section.

A club spokesperson said: "The group were made aware that the Jock Stein would not be made available due to certain safety concerns relating to this specific area, but arrangements have been made by the club to allow the group to attend within the rail seating section.

"This has been communicated to the group and the club hopes that as many supporters and supporter groups as possible come along to support Celtic FC Women at the upcoming Celtic Park matches, as well as all other matches.”

A lengthy Green Brigdae statement had read:  "Despite our best intentions and efforts, the club has refused to facilitate The Celtic End for the upcoming Celtic FC Women matches at Celtic Park. This is in stark contrast to similar matches last May where fan reps worked constructively with the club to promote the matches and draw record crowds.

"This decision has been taken by Michael Nicholson, CEO, and Chris McKay, CFO. It is vindictive against the concept of The Celtic End, the fan groups behind the idea and the thousands of fans who want to see some level of consideration given to a goal-end standing section to rejuvenate a stale Celtic Park.

"Shamefully, Nicholson and McKay would prefer for Celtic FC Women to be detrimented (sic) than have another positive advert for The Celtic End. Ironically, this decision contradicts the club statement following the cancellation of away tickets at the recent SWPL Glasgow Derby which decried others undermining the promotion and progress of the women's game.

"At a critical time in both the men's and women's seasons, we have no desire to engage in a public spat which may distract positive support for both teams. For this reason, as well as for unreasonable obstacles, it is regrettable that we will not attend the upcoming Celtic FC Women matches at Celtic Park."
