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

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.
I merely mean that this is a sign of things to come. They are untouchable. The OBAF Act was brought in to punish us and so it transpired. Eventually they decided it didn’t fit their agenda, so it was binned and this is the next set of legislation that will be pushed through to attack Rangers and our fans, all the while ignoring the out of control Celtc support.

So they held talks with them, and they still done it .....
Don’t forget they were “banned” a few years ago for
what was it again ? One game :rolleyes:

Found it. Two games !!!

Some fans will remain suspended even when Celtic reopen the Green Brigade section of their stadium after Saturday's league opener.
The Glasgow club announced a two-game closure of a 900-capacity section of the safe-standing area at Celtic Park.

That followed "serious incidents of unsafe behaviour" at previous games.

This is the game Celtic play all the time.. make a show of being seen to lay down the law to the Green Brigade or ban supporters while in reality they have a bit of a natter and anyone banned will be allowed back in once the attention is diverted.

Green Brigade has Lawwell over a barrel - they keep the flack from being thrown in public. In return he accommodates their excesses.
Remember when it always all about how Celtic fans indulge in “political” rather than “religious” singing? He gave them the green light.


On the other hand, Rangers are at odds with the most evident supporters group over where they sit in the stadium.
We are nowhere by comparison.

They f..ked up by letting it be known they hate being called pedos.
WE ARE UP TO OUR KNEES IN PEDO SCUM.
WE HATE CELTIC PEDO B..TARDS
Let's ditch the fenian for pedo.
I've sung that for a couple of years now.
I'm surprised more don't to be honest.
A simple solution to getting rid of the word fenian and likely making them even more upset.

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.
Yes but only 1 club will get away with it , nobody else will especially us

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.
I wasnt saying anything about the mhanks and what they think about England it was about the farcical way the heads of Scottish football treat not just our club but all of Scottish football. There has to be some point where the club asks why the continual nicely nicely approach towards them.
The manky mob always seem to have sponsorship deals that have a Irish connection who would have thought that.

Can anyone, amid the wailing and gnashing of teeth, try to explain just how they are being treated differently to us in this?

Rangers warn us constantly not to sing bigoted songs. Some fans sing bigoted songs. Because Rangers warn us not to, absolutely zero happens to the club in terms of sanctions.

That is pretty much exactly what is happening there too so the outrage seems to be a little strange.


If you want to discuss difference in media treatment, well, I think you will struggle to find many arguing against it but in terms of sanctions from the footballing authorities, every club really is treated the same over this.

Yes mate I know that but who exactly do you think has been running Scottish football in the last several years since the refs strike?

Its disappointing how naïve, immature and far away our club hierachy is with the UB's as a contrast.
It's true. If the UB's were facilitated in the same way the green brigade are I'm sure atmospheres at ibrox would improve.

When the SMSM never report them out for actions then they keep getting away with it, its the whole approach from that club from the top down

So there was a pre match pep talk, that no one can prove took place.

Yet they still ignored the club's pleas?

Surely then that gets them in ahem, collision with the club if not the SFA?

Lies yet again. And no one will utter a peep.

Corrupt as fcuk mate, they knew what they were doing when they forced that referee strike that's for sure.
Sneaky, slimey bastards.

No, but just ignore that. Get raging, call our board weak, demand a statement.
I've skited and skimmed through this thread.

I've yet to read anyone having a go at our board over this.

I'd say this thread is more about how the filth are being portrayed as being pro active in the 'fight' against sectarian chanting, when they are anything but.

When you think about this it really is too absurd for words.

The filth have a pep talk with the gb's before a game with Aberdeen and tell them not to sing offensive/sectarian songs.

But they don't warn them about the same sort of chanting two weekends previously before a game against Rangers?

Surely this is the Bheasts officially confirming they know in advance who sings these songs, having then "warned" these same fans not to sing these songs, these same fans then actually sing these songs but, the Bheasts knowing all of this now deny any responsibility & take no action themselves against the fans they admit to knowing sang the songs
This is simply confirmation that they are unofficial endorsing these songs & are refusing to take action on it.
So, the question here is why are they not being challenged on these facts????

Just one club's fans

For instance, coining Kris Boyd is acceptable, but not Neil Lennon
.
You forgot to say that TLB was playfully inciting a reaction by interacting with the crowd.
KB was simply warming up on the touchline.

I am honestly starting to think that Liewell or Septic have some people at the SFA by the balls. They must be using some leverage over them to get the amount of free-passes that the do. Maybe a video or picture of some of them engaged in the paedo-ring that is/was going on.

The green brigade run the club. Remember Lawell threatened them over the poppy protests and chief bigot O'Rourke then threatened Lawell with civil war if even one person got banned.
Now the club facilitate them in any way they can. Safe standing, priority seating home and away, their own office within the stadium to store their flags of religious hatred.
The whole stinking organisation needs shut down and our club should be leading the charge.

Course they know who it is they sit across from the scum (your choice which is the scum) and the rest of the decent minded folk in the country know who it is

We might hate them, but why would anyone be so blinded that they would want the SFA getting involved for songs?

People should grow up. They're just words.

It's not about being grown up its about one team (Rangers) being punished for everything and the scum getting away with everything.

When did the SFA punish us for songs?
We are always mentioned in connection to songs while others are not this devalues our brand as we are seen as the big bad bigots who sing nasty songs while other teams singing similar songs are not.

We are treated differently and if there is ever a team to be punished it will be us.
