A statement from the club added: “There would be a number of challenges to overcome to complete a development of this scale.

“Celtic aims to be a world-class football club in everything it does. We are pleased to have made significant investment in recent years to develop the stadium and public realm area for the benefit of our supporters.

“Any further development of this kind would be a hugely positive step for the club, for our supporters and for the local community.”

Holmes Miller has been appointed by Celtic Football Club as architect for the project.
