Watch as Ultras group The Bhoys walk out in support of The Green Brigade

The Green Brigade wasn’t the only Ultras group missing from Celtic Park tonight.

On Tuesday afternoon members of the Green Brigade were emailed the news that their Season Tickets had been suspended until further notice.

Celtic leaked reasons for the decision to their favoured media messengers with the Green Brigade responding with a detailed reaction to the decision, putting the blame firmly on their support for Palestine.

There was an unusual atmosphere at tonight’s match against St Mirren with many fans staying away after a day of torrential rain across much of Scotland.

The visitors took an early lead with Connor McMenamin headed home unmarked deep inside the Celtic penalty box but David Turnbull brought Celtic level in the 18th minute with a great 20 yard drive.

The former Motherwell man then missed a penalty when his effort came off the base of the post, midway through the first-half the Bhoys, seated diagonally opposite the absent Green Brigade, walked out the stadium.

Eleven minutes into the second half Brendan Rodgers sent on Yang Hyun-jun and Daizen Maeda to replace James Forrest and Luis Palma with the Korean getting some joy down the left flank.

Odin Thiago-Holm replaced Matt O’Riley in the 68th minute with Oh Hyun-gyu sent on for Turnbull with 16 minutes left to play.

With seven minutes left on the clock Kyogo Furuhashi and Holm combined, when the ball was fed through to Oh he took one touch then slammed the ball home from 10 yards out.

There was a nervy four minutes of stoppage time to be navigated before John Beaton blew the final whistle to the relief of those fans not involved in suspensions or walk-outs.

It has been a traumatic couple of days for the Celtic support with attention now switching to Saturday’s match away to Ross County.
