Queueing outside Celtic’s pitch (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

incline

Here is my best explanation:

'pitch' is the definition.

('incline' can be a synonym of 'pitch')

'queueing outside celtic's' is the subsidiary indication.

'queueing' becomes 'inline'.

'outside' indicates putting letters inside.

'celtic' becomes 'c'.

'inline' enclosing 'c' is 'incline'.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for incline that I've seen before include "Lean, slope", "Slope", "Tend - slope", "Gradient", "Have a tendency to do or be something", "Tend; lean", "Lean (towards)", "Turn", "lean forward" and "Bend forwards".)
