Celtic have confirmed they will reopen the Green Brigade section of their stadium after Saturday's league opener - but some fans will remain suspended.

The Glasgow club announced a two-game closure of a 900-capacity section of the safe-standing area at Celtic Park for their Champions League home tie against Rosenborg last week and the Ladbrokes Premiership visit of Hearts on Saturday following "serious incidents of unsafe behaviour" at their previous two home fixtures.

Fans in the area housing the Green Brigade ultras-style group held a pyrotechnic display in the final Parkhead game of last season and Celtic were fined around £20,000 by UEFA for "blocked stairways" and "illicit banner" charges relating to the European game against Linfield.

A club statement revealed the majority of season-ticket holders would be readmitted after the Hearts game.
