    Anybody more clued up than me as to why we continue to help out our main rivals financially every year with using this service? Surely after the Cinch stitch up job from the SFA we should get rid. Sickens me seeing us linked to that lot in any way whatsoever

    I always heard they give us the service for free.

    I’m guessing their bus being visible on TV every time our team arrive is good advertisement to the extent they don’t even charge us.

    I’d rather we invested in our own coaches and hired in house drivers. If they like the staff Parks supply us then even offer them new jobs so they aren’t losing work.

    It's free. Simple as.
    Apparently to run a teams own coach bus can be upwards of 30k (can't mind what time over mind). Celtic get free buses

    I'd agree.
    I think it would be worth it to look like an elite level club if we want to be playing with the big boys.

    But only when it is financially viable

    I’ve heard the rumblings about them being free for years same as everyone else but I’d be utterly amazed if that were the case. The knuckle draggers would be all over it from the opposite angle if it were the case.

    Long and short of it is, if you want to act like and be a big club you have your own liveried transport and we’re no different. Covid was a bit different but it’s something we should now be pursuing.

    So why not get another firm, nothing to do with them, and give them the free advertising ? I’m sure there’s more than just one in Scotland :39:

    definitely get rid of parks in every way that they are associated with us, I don’t care if it’s free - I’d rather the club paid honest money to any decent coach firm, firms would be lining up to be associated with Champ League Celtic, HE/THEY/parks HATE US, I’m happy to reciprocate

    Was there not a team bus used in the photoshoot for the new kit or was it just a prop?

    If that’s true, then isn’t that what we pay one of our players a week ?

    Anyone happy to use Parks shouldn't be moaning when the penny pinching makes its way into other parts of the club.

    Get Parks to fu*k, I don't care if it's free. The guy who owns it and his team turn my stomach.

    Mind rangers spend 500k on a custom team bus and it got torched before they could even use it. I'm sure we just use their buses to stop buses from getting targeted.

    Look at Parks thinking they're some sort of financial powerhouse haha, Cinch probably take more a week that they operate in a year. No-one outside Glasgow even know who they are, unless your a Celtic/Rangers fan.

    In the list of things to get in a twist over, this is well down the pecking order.
