Thats ok then - Celtic to escape SFA rap for fans’ sectarian singing after holding pre-match talks with Green Brigade

It will take player being either seriously injured by a fan or even killed for anything serious to be done in terms of fan behaviour which is quite disgusting tbh
I agree that one of these “ flash bangs” the green brigade are fond of or a firework is going to go off in a players face soon and cause damage , then there will be a big outcry about why it took so long to do anything’s about them .

Lawell will keep playing ball with the green brigade in the meantime as they remain a massively useful tool for him and his board in many ways.

I cant get my head round how a bunch of tarrier thugs can be thought of as some sort of legal group or like a limited company.
The Media are speaking about this Scum as if they are bringing good vibes to football.
We know the facts and the more this becomes the norm the further we fall behind.
Cant be allowed to go on!

Celtic facilitate and encourage and engage with them on a weekly basis.
Its very impressive how they are managed and engaged with the wider timmy agenda, either political or otherwise by the club directly. They are wrapped in the overall PR protection racket to a degree.

Its disappointing how naïve, immature and far away our club hierachy is with the UB's as a contrast.

Ok, we've sat back so long.

I am tempted to suggest a boycott of away grounds, until all clubs approach the SFA and demand a more transparent and even governing body.

This Celtc rule the roost shit has to stop.

We could assure them that we would vote for a more even spread of TV money as a carrot, beyond the financial loss if they refuse to help us obtain a fair and just SFA, by our boycotting their stadiums.

Stand with us and fight this stinking corrupt Bheast led bunch.
Who would back us though? Petrie and the rest of the SPL were only too happy to put the boot in. Then you have Mulroney doing his master's bidding

It generally means a slapped wrist every so often for most of them, and 2012 shows the lower leagues don't have the stomach for a fight

Brown gets away with murder on and off the park.

Lennon can do and say anything he pleases in the dugout.

Their fans can act with impunity in the stands.

Is this where we are?

Sadly yes.


You highlighted in facts That Scottish football is at its lowest point ever morally.

And I think we can all agree that it is just going to get worse.

Worse? More serious and fatal injuries due to the hatred the likes of Brown and Lennon are drumming up in the "Grheen brigade"

As much as we hate that mob, what did we expect to happen?

They cannot be punished as there is no strict liability in the same way as we have never faced charges at a domestic level either.
That is my take on it also. My problem is the negative media coverage we receive over it compared to that mob.

Surely if you meet with someones fans, warn them about singing certain songs, then they basically ignore you, then punishment should be easy
It's basically a case of Celtic saying they are doing all they can do by issuing warnings but individuals aren't heeding it. They know if they are seen to be pro active they won't be punished. Bizarre!

If the English media started showing an interest in the farcical way the SFA allows beast.f.c to act the way they do maybe something would have to change, surely the team Gerrard brought up would have contacts within the English press or better still the F.A

The English media dont give a monkey's %^*& about anything north of the border ! We are an outpost, both in football and politics.

Dont worry. Wee Stewy Robertson is working away "behind the scenes" to rectify the situation.
Most likely with King’s say so, going by his latest ramblings about doing things in a dignified manner.
We haven’t a chance as long as that’s his strategy.

I don't know why people continue to peddle this line, the fenians have absolutely zero respect for the English so why would they care?
Other than damaging potential sponsorship revenues I can't really see what impact it would have.
Their sponsors continue to sponsor them despite being alerted to their sordid past so even at that they probably still would.

Can someone refresh my memory - were we charged over the Steve Clarke song?

If not then I’m not sure what folk expect them to do.
The difference here is the sectarian abuse aimed at McInnes was inside Hampden in an SFA run competition so the SFA should really be condemning the scum fans

I haven’t opened the link as it’s giving the Sun hits but I’ve not seen or heard Maxwell or SFA commenting on the incident and this’s where Lieswells power is being influenced and he’s controlling and minimising the fallout

Dornan MSP will be absolutely raging at this. He will re-doubled his campaign for strict liability.

If true, that's setting a very dangerous precedent, where fans can sing and do what they want and the club escapes punishment as long as they have a wee talk with supporters reps before the game. Mental.
The invite for a wee chat will be on its way from wee Clare to the union bears don't worry , or hold your breath

The incident with Clarke was in the same SFA run tournament.

Strict liability, if or when it comes, will be designed by Liewell to target one club more than the rest. We all know the club that will suffer first and the most. Once Liddell has all bases covered he will give the go ahead.

Maybe I'm just been pesimistic.

And. That's only a subset of their support.

We play out a stupid 2 minute anti sectarian message EVERY home.game. why are Jimmy savilles favourites not doing it?

With no strict liability, what powers do the SFA have to punish any club?

We never received any punishment from SFA for our singing towards Steve Clarke.

However the difference in reporting in the media between their singing and our singing is very concerning and has been for a long time. This hypocrisy needs to be highlighted and continually highlighted.

It's got f*ck all to do with Celtic having a talk with the Green Brigade.

How many times do these c*nts act out and get away with it from banners to chanting about the IRA etc.

It really is simple in the sense of:

DOB/H*n = Fair game
F£nian = bad and charges will be brought against you.
Sums up the cesspit that is modern day Scotland. Ruled by scum, for scum.

Has the SFA / SPL or SPFL, or whatever the fxxk you call them, ever taken action against Rangers for sectarian chants/songs in domestic league or cup matches?

My memory is sadly not what it once was but I can’t remember us ever being hit for this.

So, as much as it pains me to say it, I don’t remember any precedent being set for the SFA to base any punishment on the tramps.

I agree the tarriers are out of control

I agree they get away with murder on the pitch

I agree their board simply pay lip service to media regarding the behaviour of their fans

I agree their board are in cahoots with the green brigade and know exactly what banners they are going to display on match day.

I agree that whole scummy club are a blight on decent society and need held accountable for their crimes.

However on this one I don’t see them being liable for their fans chants and to be honest I don’t want them to be as it opens the door for us to be hammered too and then strict liability. Until we get our own house in order we must be wary as to what punishments are being talked about out there.

What is more of an issue, as far as I am concerned, is the media and political fall out from this. Reading the times article you get the impression “former Rangers” man McInnes is the one to blame and he “admitted” he was wrong to react to the filth chants and he will accept his punishment. What sort of pish is this?

Also heard nothing from anti sectarian groups or political darlings who get mortally wounded when someone farts. There is simply nobody “calling it out” when Protestants are on the wrong end of this type of behaviour.

Maybe we need to be engaging with the CoS to get them to stand to fxxk up for themselves.

This is now beyond sinister, they are literally getting away with everything.

Rangers should be asking questions that demand immediate answers from the the hierarchy and the compliance officer.

The whole set up is tainted beyond repair

So no strict liability then , unless its Rangers.

Every and any Rangers fan who lives in Scotland must vote out catholic and pro-Celtc candidates. It's the only way.
I’m not sure what you mean here? We haven’t been subjected to strict liability either have we?

There is literally nothing which can be done to Celtic as a club for this with the current rules. Or any other club with misbehaving fans.

Let me get this right. The Peasants supposedly warned the Gangrene Brigade pre-match about sectarian singing, yet it was ignored and still happened anyway ?
Exactly my point, it still happened, and despite this it’s still ignored by the C.O.
