"Aye maybe they shouldnae have shouted and swore and chucked stuff at young children but some o' they bad Hearts boys had John Wilson masks on tae upset Lennie an' that was pure worse byrraway."

My god they are pathetic, and I hope we crush them into paste on 25 May.

I love Celtic. The gift that keeps on giving. They just cant help themselves. Always catering to their masses.

Couldn't just turn the other cheek and admit the wrongdoing without a whataboutery. Classless.

I started reading the statement and was thinking that it was actually a decent one and fair play. Then it got all very Celtic. Utter filth the lot of them.

One thing which tempers their vile sectarian chanting is dishing out a 4-0 thrashing.

 

We all learned that not too long ago.

 

I just hope our entire support takes the high ground on 25th May.

From a pathetic and classless club. 

 

They have no interest in making any positive change in Scottish football. About time the media actually sacked up and questioned them on this. 

They are certainly very insular, quick to deflect and sweep their problems under the carpet, as per. 

 

The first sentence is bang on. Then they should have said, “if this sort of behaviour continues, we will have no other option but to take action against our supporters who are damaging the club, it’s reputation and Scottish Football.” End of statement.

 

Instead of, “they done it too”

The surprise is anyone is surprised at their pathetic attempts at deflection, whataboutery and of course victimhood.  Wouldn't be sellik without a double dose of victimhood.

‘Crush them into paste’ should be the phrase of choice in every Cup Final post/thread from now until the 26th of May.  ie. The day after we have ‘crushed them into paste’.

 

Totally and absolutely FTC..

That is horrendous. 

 

However, it's exactly the attitude shown by an apparent contingent on here with regard to our own club's attempts to eradicate sectarianism from our own support.

 

"They must stop first." 

 

Pathetic.

Yes first thing I thought about .

The actual official statement at the time is even more damning than your version .

Standard stuff from them.

No doubt the Scottish media will take them to task for the statement or possibly engage in whataboutery , hand wringing about societal problems and the use of a large stiff brush and carpet.

Ho hum.

Sums that club. Utterly classless.

 

Compare that whataboutery to Budge's no-nonsense approach. Pathetic stuff and pretty much exactly what you'd expect from them.

This will never change with them. They use the victim card mercilessly.  They need this sense of being downtrodden. It's all part of their club ethos and is essential for their financial well being. The other arse cheek on the other side of Glasgow play exactly the same game. Nothing will change until the authorities waken up and start dealing with them robustly.  This statement actually shows just how unwilling they are to face up to the problem of sectarianism that is deeply imbedded in Celtic. It's there in their club - the lot of them steeped in it from top to bottom.

Famine song is deemed racist so could that last line be on similar lines?

I've no qualms with Celtic's Irishness.

 

Just as I wouldn't be if a set of Scottish immigrants  / ex pats set up a Scottish club overseas.

 

Singing pro terrorists songs, IRA and PIRA,bigoted songs, calling themselves brigades with innuendo to the IRA while all along their administrators play the token tick box  minimal guidelines when as yesterday's statement proved know which side their cash comes from, is a different matter completely.

 

As an edit - we need to take the cash hit by giving Rangers and Celtic one section each until there are tangible efforts seen by their custodians.

Irvine Welsh:

"It has to do with the Old Firm and the power of those institutions not really being invested in change. Why would they be? Rangers without sectarianism are Partick Thistle, basically. And Celtic without sectarianism are Hibs. They're invested in that, and it serves them as enterprises."

Until you are unable to tell someone's religion based on what football top they wear, then this will get nowhere at all.

 

I can walk through an airport in Scotland, or a shopping centre and identify the religion of people with the same ease as if they were wearing a Hijab or a Turban.

 

- though I cannot do that if they are in a Dundee top, an Aberdeen top, a St Mirren top and so on.

 

What a mess this country is.

He's right to focus on the power element.

 

Something that isn't discussed enough. Mostly because the media either don't want to upset them or are hand in glove with them.

**** me if that is not Irvine Welsh's best work right there.It's been a long time coming but easily surpasses the narrative arc drivel we have been subjected to so far.

To be honest I don't think many are surprised by the statement although many will be disappointed.

 

Celtic have deliberately avoided calling it sectarian singing the use of "Chants of this nature" shows they are scared of upsetting their own supporters which makes them really weak.

 

The more interesting part for me was the McInnes comment that at least the sectarian singing was going into the match delegates report it usually does not. I have always wanted to know how many times it is reported it should be every week every time it happens. If the match delegates are not reporting it why not have they been instructed or do they think it is acceptable

For all those who go at Ann Budge's statements and complain that why doesn't she go at the opposition's behaviour, this is what it looks like and how it undermines the sincerity of condemnation of behaviour of own fans.

 

It is a pathetic statement by Celtic and one they should be ashamed about. The fact that more words are used to go at Aberdeen fans then their own problems shows they dont really care.
