Celtic football club's charity foundation is planning to spend £150,000 on those at risk in the local area due to the coronavirus. 

They are putting plans in place to feed around 250 people every weekday at their Celtic Park stadium as part of the Football For Good Fund. 

The fund is aiming to help 'vulnerable families, pensioners, individuals who have been affected financially by the crisis, the homeless and frontline NHS staff'.

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell said: "Our club was born to bring comfort to the most vulnerable on our doorstep and we strive to maintain that charitable principle today through the work of Celtic FC Foundation.

"The current climate we face is both alien and daunting and we must do everything in our power to provide assistance and comfort to those who need it most."
