Rutherglen could see an increase in parking if a proposal to create a 1km no-parking radius around Celtic Park is given the go-ahead.
Glasgow City Council chiefs have lodged plans to introduce permits for local residents and businesses in the area around Parkhead and the Emirates Arena during football games and sporting events.
The scheme’s process is also to keep the main routes to and from the stadiums clear for emergency services in the event of an incident occurring within the venue.
A public engagement session was held and members of the public were able to complete an online questionnaire relating to the proposal and the information was considered for the next stage in the planning process.
But if the proposal becomes successful, Rutherglen could see an influx of sports fans parking around the town.
While the radius only stretches as far as Cuningar Loop, fans could look to use the town to dump their cars before a match.
South Lanarkshire Council head of roads and transportation, Gordon Mackay, said the local authority had not been consulted.
He said: “While we are aware of Glasgow City Council’s proposals to introduce permits for local residents and businesses in the area around the Celtic Park and Emirates complex for events, South Lanarkshire has not been formally consulted as the proposals only affect streets within the city council’s boundary.
“In principle, we support the aims of the proposal to manage emergency access routes and parking on the day of events and would encourage people travelling to this area on these days to use public transport.”
It is understood restrictions would start three hours before an event commences and finish one hour after the event ends. A statement on the Glasgow City Council’s
