Bhoys Net cash boost.

Celtic will become the first British club to go on the Internet.

The Bhoys are going hi-tech in a bid to raise funds for Parkhead's redevelopment and more big-name signings.

Fergus McCann's financial revolution will continue next month when the club will blitz fans with information and marketing on a global scale.

Computer-owning Celtic supporters worldwide will be able to keep up with the latest news on stars like John Collins and Paul McStay for the cost of a local phone call.

And, more importantly, it will give the Bhoys a massive new market for their commercial department.

Domestic business is already booming at Celtic's two club shops and with their mail order system.

But I understand fans will be able to link up with their heroes on the information super-highway from March 21- four days after the crunch Old Firm clash at Ibrox.

Parkhead PR man Peter McLean admitted: "We're forever receiving visits or queries from America, Canada and every other point of the globe.

"We also had a terrific interest from the Far and Middle East for our share issue last year, so we know how far-reaching Celtic is."
