Celtic to demolish old school

http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/new...e-given-go-ahead-123675n.21020173

I'm gutted this is going ahead!

Why dont they just shell it and make it the new museum instead of flattening the fackin thing... after all the old school played a rather large part in their history !

Same old story. The owners (the council) have allowed it to get into such a
state it's now been declared "structurally unsound" and would cost a fortune
to repair.

The school is an eyesore, structurally unsafe and is of no real historical significance


But as a celtic supporter I won't be happy until a 700m casino is built on the site  


Seriously the work when finished will turn the area around the stadium into a place fitting of a modern arena, the days of ploughing through mud and puddles will be a thing of the past at last !

It wasn't after they allowed the demolition of Partick Central nor the destruction
of Springburn Halls recently, so I doubt this abandoned-for-nine-years+ school
will even register this time...

This has been rumoured for some time, just as well we have photos of the insides and the janitors house, Calamity got me into it a few years ago
I was hoping that it could have been converted, rather than demolished
Soon there will be no buildings of that type

Let Glasgow Flourish by the leaving of fine buildings to deteriorate or better still by ensuring they have 'went on fire'.

Who are they kidding, unsound.... we lived in hooses a lot worse than the lovely big school.. what a farce..and another piece of eastend history gone forever. Celtic must have come intae a few bob.

More mysterious workings from the celtic supporters club in the city chambers!

Corrupt!
mani

it says in the newspapers that the football club payed 300000 for the old school property i was told by someome that they only paid a pound
calamity

no wanting to be a grass, but someone on this board wrote on the blackboard and wisnae me..



In the dinner school kitchen



norrie

Hi Calamity, Grass, black spot for you
mani

this building should have been saved if the football club want it they should have been given it but at a cost that the outside being renovated and kept as it was a good example of stonework
norrie

Hi Mani, I agree
cybers

There was a rumour it was to be converted to admin and ticket sales with a new restaurant added but that was many years ago and the polis used it for years buckshee as a command and control centre even though they have a purpose built one one the stadium.

I wont be sad to see it go as change will always happen and that entire area looks nothing like the east end I grew up in... The memories are the same though.

What about that wreck of a pub (Turnstiles) slightly further along from the school building.

Surely that has to be bulldozed before the Commonwealth Games visitors arrive?

The Queen has a table booked for a cheeky wee pint before the opening ceremony.
