Celtic stadium manager Robin Buchanan has taken to Twitter to share his belief that the Hoops’ Scottish Cup tie against Morton can go ahead on Saturday.
Buchanan shared a photo of the pitch at Celtic Park on his personal Twitter page.
“First day of Spring at Celtic Park. Pitch looking good for Saturday” he said.

The match going ahead would certainly be a boost for the Hoops, following the cancellation of the match against Dundee on Wednesday night.
The Hoops are hoping to reschedule the match against Dundee for Wednesday, as reported by the Daily Record, weather permitting of course.
Brendan Rodgers will be fearful of a fixture pile-up if the matches don’t go ahead this week, particularly as there is an international break later in the month.
He will also be concerned about the prospect of going into next Sunday’s Old Firm derby undercooked, having not played for a fortnight.
The Bhoys last played on Sunday, where a 2-0 victory over Aberdeen put the Hoops nine points clear at the top of the table, but the Gers cut the defect to six points once again after a 4-1 victory over St Johnstone on Tuesday.
It looks like the weather is just another thing the Hoops will have to overcome in their quest to win a second consecutive domestic treble.
In other Celtic news, Charly Musonda should start against Morton – provided that the game goes ahead
