Celtic will host their December AGM virtually with fans unable to attend due to coronavirus protocols.

Supporters have been asked to submit questions four days before the event begins and the Rangers resolution regarding their Uefa licence is back on the agenda.

Any votes are expected to be completed via proxy and resolutions will be conducted by poll as opposed to the conventional show of hands. 

The club could face difficult questions from shareholders regarding their failure to qualify for the Champions League this season as well as the defeat to Rangers in the opening derby of the season. Finances are also expected to be discussed with Covid-19 hitting all clubs around the world hard.

A document released by the club said: "Celtic confirms that its AGM will be held at Celtic Park at 11.30 am on Monday 14 December 2020. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, including the related social distancing requirements, public health guidance and legislation issued by both the UK and Scottish Governments, the AGM will be held on a 'closed' basis. 

"Shareholders will therefore not be permitted to attend in person and anyone who seeks to attend in person will not be permitted to do so, on the grounds of public safety.

"As shareholders will not be able to attend in person, shareholders are strongly encouraged to vote on all resolutions by completing a proxy appointment form appointing the 'Chair of the Meeting' as your proxy. 

"All of the voting in respect of the resolutions to be proposed at the AGM will be conducted by way of poll votes (rather than votes being conducted on a show of hands). The results of the votes on the proposed resolutions will be announced in the normal way, via poll, as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the AGM."

One item on the agenda of interest is resolution 11 which involves the potential to investigate and/or challenge Rangers' granting of a Uefa European licence back in 2010. The resolution was first brought up in 2013 at the Hoops AGM but now a 'final vote' will be taken after the SFA confirmed they would not pursue the action in the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The document goes on: "Resolution 11 is the same form as resolution 12 proposed at the 2013 AGM which was requisitioned by certain members and then adjourned indefinitely at that meeting.

"It is included for a final vote by the Company's shareholders.

"11. This AGM requests the Board exercise the provision contained in the Procedural Rules Governing the UEFA Club Financial Control Body Article 10 with jurisdiction and investigation responsibilities identified in articles 3 & 11 (Note 1), by referring/bringing to the attention of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB), the licensing administration practices of the Scottish Football Association (SFA), requesting the CFCB undertake a review and investigate the SFA’s implementation of UEFA & SFA license compliance requirements, with regard to qualification, administration and granting of licenses to compete in football competitions under both SFA and UEFA jurisdiction, since the implementation of the Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations of 2010."
