COVID vaccine passports look set to be in operation for Celtic's trip to Dundee United at the start of December.

Supporters of both clubs will be required to show proof of their vaccination status to gain entry to Tannadice just 24-hours before the government policy is altered.

Nicola Sturgeon announced that the passport scheme will be halted from December.

From there on in, proof of a negative lateral-flow test will be enough to gain entry to large scale events such as football matches.

However, the start date for this has been confirmed as Monday, December 6. 

This is just 24-hours after the Hoops take on Dundee United in the City of Discovery.

Dundee United released a statement confirming that more than one in four fans in attendance for their clash with Aberdeen on Saturday were checked for a vaccine passport.

The statement reads: "We are now able to confirm the official attendance at Tannadice on Saturday was 9927, including over 2600 away fans.

"Saturday was used as a test event for Covid Passports and 2557 spectators were successfully checked.

"We would like to take the opportunity to thank all fans who attended and helped us complete a successful test event.

"Please be aware that Covid Passports will be required for the 5 December home fixture versus Celtic and we will issue fuller guidance nearer the time."
