Celtic FC hotel and museum 'would create 120 new jobs'
The Scottish Premiership champions have now submitted full plans for the scheme.
Celtic's proposed hotel and museum complex would create as many as 120 jobs, it has been revealed.
The Scottish Premiership champions have now submitted full plans for the development, which would also include a ticket office and retail store.
The hotel, which would be five storeys, would be based on London Road outside the main stand of Celtic Park and close to the Emirates Arena.
A restaurant as well as a cafe/bar would be on the ground floor of the building.
The proposed new shop, ticketing facility and museum entrance would be at first floor level with the main portion of the museum below this.
Planners Muir Smith Evans, on behalf of Celtic, confirmed between 100 and 120 jobs would be created if the development is approved.
A statement submitted with the new plans said: "The proposed development will result in the creation of some 100 to 120 permanent full and part-time jobs and will contribute positively to the regeneration of the Clyde Gateway area."
The statement continued: "The direct creation of over 100 new employment opportunities will be a major boost to the area and will clearly contribute towards the key planning aim of achieving sustainable economic growth.
"There is currently no quality hotel accommodation within the area between the city centre and Tollcross despite the key attractions of Celtic Park and the Emirates Arena.
"The current lack of hotel accommodation in the vicinity means that everyone attending events at the football stadium or the arena requires to travel on the day of the event, adding to traffic volumes in the surrounding area."
It added: "By locating the proposed hotel immediately beside the stadium and arena pressure on the local transport network will be reduced, particularly at times of peak movement.
"Experience elsewhere also demonstrates that hotel restaurant and cafe/bar facilities adjoining a football stadium can help to spread the timing of trips over a greater time period avoiding peak periods."
Celtic confirmed fans will not be able to park in the hotel car park on matchdays unless they are staying there.
