|Hoopy The Huddle Hound|
|A popular and lovable mascot, the costume character has the look that is popular to all. Kids love it and it was a big improvement over the old mascot.
The goofing around of the mascot on matchdays has become a regular feature, and is much to the delight of most people. If Hoopy isn’t there for a home match then people start querying about it on the forums.
A loveable old dog
Some may have whine about Mascots, and even find them a bit ridiculous but they really should take a step back. In 2014, the wonderful little boy Oscar Knox who was bravely battling cancer was guest of honour at Celtic Park for the matches v Cliftonville in the European Cup. The pictures of Hoopy with Oscar Knox will melt your heart, and meant a lot to Wee Oscar and his family. For some children, Hoopy is just a wonderful addition to the Celtic experience, and the Oscar Knox experience has made it all something special.
The New Hoopy
|Hailey The Huddle Hound
|In the late 2010’s (around 2018-19) a female Hoopy the Huddle Hound compatriot was added to the mascot line-up, moving with the times, and very welcome the female mascot is too.
She was named ‘Hailey’, ‘Hailey the Huddle Hound’.
|Vince The Parrot|
Introduced by the old biscuit tin board as a mascot, following after a fan dressed as a parrot won a Celtic fancy dress contest at a match at Celtic Park (I kid you not!) (see match & pictures).
Classic episode for Vince the Parrot is rumoured that a certain director had an argument in the fancy dress shop about the cost of the costume and so on.
Short-lived character that some recall and became a victim of the changes after the takeover of the club in 1994.
