In recognition of its proximity to the Celtic Park football stadium, by 1904, it was known as Parkhead (for Celtic Park); and it was also referred to in some timetables as Parkhead for Celtic Park.
The station was renamed Parkhead Stadium by British Railway Board on 3 March 1952. The nearby ex-North British Railway's Coatbridge Branch station, "Parkhead", was renamed "Parkhead North" on 30 June 1952.
It was closed to passengers on 5 October 1964.
