‘First time you’ve stood up for the fans’ ‘Bring in the 12th man!!!!’ ‘Focus on letting our fans back in’ Celtic supporters react to Glasgow Derby lock-out

Celtic fans were looking at other issues as their club finally found a voice on the stand-off over ticket allocations for the Glasgow Derby.

Two matches have been played at Ibrox in the last six months without a single Celtic fan in the ground- or a word of explanation from the club.

Whispers to favoured media partners from Celtic sources have surfaced but it was only late this afternoon that the vaguest of references was made to safety issues.

Previously Celtic had remained silent over a physio suffering permanent disfigurement from a glass bottle thrown by an Ibrox hospitality client, at the same match in April 2022 Michael Nicholson quickly accepted that the CCTV wasn’t working when glass appeared in Joe Hart’s goalmouth while ground staff worked on the penalty area.

Now that it has been confirmed no away fans will be at the match a week on Saturday many Celtic fans are looking for the club to announce that the suspension of 267 Green Brigade members has been lifted.

Again the Board has been avoiding the issue while the atmosphere at Celtic Park resembles a library other than when chants protesting against the Board and Chairman are heard. Being outsung by St Mirren, Motherwell and Hibs fans isn’t good for the stadium reputation.

In other circumstances some good PR would be very welcome but repeatedly the Celtic Board has shown how aloof they are to the views of their customers.

Around Season Ticket renewal time they sugar coat the Celtic family comments, once the money has been safely banked it is business as usual as they attempt to ensure success on the park as cheaply as possible with millions tucked away in the bank for rainy days and dividends.
