There's no doubt we have our scummy fans, that can't be denied.
My issue is with blaming the players or fans generally for what happened hours afterwards away from the ground. Those attacks were by thugs, because they are violent t**ts. Sectarianism, football, players behaviour (no Celtic player did anything wrong by the way), none of that gives reason or excuses the violence.

There is no doubt that people were stabbed because they were Celtic supporters. The attacks were carried out by seriously violent people. They did not do it because of what went on at a football match. They did it because they are hate filled individuals. Why do incidents like this happen in Scotland after a Glasgow Derby only? They don't is the true answer but that doesn't suit the narrative. If you believe otherwise then you are naive or working to an agenda.
More supporters are arrested percentage wise at Birmingham City matches than at any other UK ground. I suppose Jack Grealish shouldn't be so good! What happened to provoke the Roma fans to attack several Liverpool fans last year? That's just two examples, there's plenty more. Maybe we should just ban soccer matches?
What is happening in Scotland is nothing other than outright thuggery.

Ok. Calling out the overt sectarianism around this fixture is now trolling. Ok. Got it.

Iíve been to Celtic park
Many times and feel a strong affinity to their Irish and charitable origins.
That said, there are elements of the old firm rivalry which are dangerous and unattractive.
Scott Brownís  interviews are often hilarious and heís proven himself to be a winner , but like all old firm
Players , he has a responsibility not to provoke . It appears There is a man fighting for his life and a family in distress because of injuries incurred related to the old firm yesterday. Thatís reality. Celtic have much better resources and a much better team and I was delighted with the win, but Scott Brownís behaviour yesterday left a lot to be desired .
Iím absolutely delighted for Neil Lennon particularly, but Brown should remember that Neil and others have suffered enormously as a result of sectarianism, and I hope all of us genuine Celtic fans are big enough to analyse Scott Brownís behaviour yestersday, and though itís hard not to have a laugh and enjoy his goading of our rivals, we must be big enough to admit that itís not what Celtic is.about , as an institution .

That's pathetic. Brown is in no way responsible for what went on in town yesterday.
If some maniac wants to knife someone it wasn't because of what Brown did.
Gerrard's comment after the game about Halliday wanting to "protect his own people " was more dangerous.

That was shithousery of Ramos/Pepe proportions yesterday from Brown!!

2 men sent off and there should have been a 3rd is a good days work.

The players really need to take responsibility for their actions in these games. A sectarian cesspit is being inflamed and made a hell of a lot worse by Celtic and Rangers. Time they coped on.

Away on and troll elsewhere you waste of space. Get  a fecking job ffs.

Exactly. Footballers step over a line sometimes but that does not give excuse or justify what went on after.

They could afford it but the chances of paying it would be slim to say the least, Kent is decent all right!!

Kent played well yesterday but there is a reason he is at Rangers on loan (look at his loan history).
Celtic only spend £8m on the likes of Edouard.

Have a ticket for Sunday but it was just sprung on me and i've to try and find a way over...

Think Celtic will win 3-0 on Sunday, there could be a sending off or two. I expect Sevco to have someone sent off and therefore we'll win 3-0. If it stays 11 v 11 then i'll go for a 2-0 or 2-1 to Celtic...

Forrest to score first...

I'll have your ticket if you can't make it!  ;D
One thing for sure it will be nothing like the last one.
Poor decisions all round that day. I'll take 4-0.

Big game tomorrow... with Aberdeen making statements about beating Celtic in Celtic Park!

The hibs drawing with the huns has further dented their bandwagon, so a home victory tomorrow puts the Celts 10 points ahead and really would be a Devon loch-esque collapse to lose the league from there.

Win today and following two matches against Livi and sevco and we will be at least 13 ahead. Effectively we can win the league at home against " Steven Gerrard's Rangers".

There's a lot of posters appear to be Scottish football experts all of a sudden.
I can assure you Aberdeen, Hibs Dundee Utd and even some Hearts fans feel the same way about the new incarnation of rangers.
It's the same tiresome nonsense on most of the threads here. For some reason, certain posters appear only to exist to antagonise.
It's boring and unimaginative. By all means post comment but at least do the research first.

I don't mind Celtic. Good luck to them etc. But this blind faith, more than a club, we're a big Irish parish, Rodgers is a cheating sex addict shite is embarrassing. They're a football business.
There's also a huge sectarian element that's just glossed over. Both Celtic and Rangers feed off this to try and generate profits, which makes me a little uneasy.

You obviously donít know much about Celticsís history then.

What part is he wrong about? He's right about clubs having major issues with sectarian abuse towards opposing teams. Only this week I listened to scottish journalist discussing the issue. Steve Clarke had problems with sectarian abuse from Rangers fans and Kris Boyd got sectarian abuse from Celtic fans. Neither club seems to be doing anything to try and stamp it out and its always been there. You only have to see the poisonous atmosphere at old firm games on the tv no matter who's at home. One reason why I try to discourage my son from watching Celtic or scottish football
maybe do your research before posting such uninformed statements.

That's like saying you wouldn't let your son support Dublin in Gaelic football because they are known to be drunk, tattoo wielding, dole cheating , drug involved scumbags

If you don't like Celtic that's fine.
Interesting you are posting your ill informed misinformed statements on a Celtic thread

So youre saying the main sports writer for a scottish newspaper, steve clarke and Kris Boyd are all wrong and sectarianism doesn't exist in scottish football. I mean, maybe you're right. What would they know. They only live in scotland and either play for report on or mangage scottish premier league teams. As someone who lives in Ireland I assume you clearly understand how things work in scotland and scottish football far better.
I'm pointing out the facile examples you put up.

If the culprits were caught would they face charges of sectarianism for throwing a coin?
No. It's assault or attempted asset.

Your point about neither club ( in fact most clubs in Scotland)
Doing anything about it is also 100%  incorrect.
Go check your facts.

I didn't say sectarianism didnt exist- hence my point that Scottish clubs are trying to take measures to address it.

You don't like Celtic. Fine. But would you believe the bs from journalists about the drunken dubs fans, the drugs being taken on hill 16, poisonous atmosphere from hill 16 etc etc.. 
..would you believe that?
Would you stop your son going to croker and not support Dublin because you read that?

I was a Celtic season ticket holder for 10 years and get over to games every year. Never saw any issues.

You are still posting your ill informed carp on a Celtic thread...

If you don't like Celtic.. why bother reading this thread?

But theyre not addressing it. Steve Clarke is raising his kids outside of glasgow and is delighted they dont know what sectarianism is. That's a damning indictment of both clubs so called efforts to clean up their act. All this holier than thou nonsense and rubbish spouted that its not as bad as Liverpool ot Utd is just nonsense.
Why dont more Irish fans support Hibernian? Wasn't one of their founders an Irish man? Problem there is they arent as successful as Celtic and no bandwagon to jump aboard. If its one thing Irish fans do well is get behind a winning team

I won't resort to your level.

Go check it out.
All the Scottish clubs are a dressing it.

Get yiur head out of the sand

Just because you don't want to acknowledge it doesn't mean it isn't happening.
 I'm sure the hooligan element is as bad if not worse in England.
.. songs about plane crashes, collapsing stadia and organised fighting after or before games...

Same thought process coukd be applied to 75% of Dublin fans... their ancestry is culchie... so surely they should be following leitrum or longford etc

Your arguments are without any research or understanding.

Plus again.. if you hate Celtic..  why comment here.
Your kid  has some role model... and is going to be  equally as socially ignorant and inept it would seem

Its as bad now as it was 20 years ago. Thats not me saying it thats scottish press who can look on it in a non biased way. Its farcical how Irish people, living in Ireland seem to think sectarianism isnt a big deal in scotland. Yet theyll criticise Liverpool and Utd fans and claim theyre worse for singing songs.

Im amazed Lennon went back to Celtic (and his family agreed) given all the s**te he had to deal with on and off the pitch. No amount of money is worth that. I cant belive hed want tje job on a full time basis (or his family would let him take it)

Do you live in Scotland? Why would you take a narrow minded, sensationalist media's word for it?
Sectarianism is not a big issue in the wider Scottish society. We've a lot more to be worried about. As for criticising EPL fans you were the one coming into a thread you never normally frequent, spouting inaccuracies about Celtic.

Total wums!
Most have no concept of irony. Of course we have an idiotic element within our support. No more and in fact probably a lot less than Chelsea, Man U or Liverpool support. It's very ironic that Clarke complains of sectarianism  (rightly so) then name checks one of the most racist supports in England as a reason why he's glad his kids were brought up there. Apart from "Orange b**tard" what other examples of sectarian chanting can you show from the Celtic support.

Lots of posters spectacularly missing the point. It was the manner of BR leaving and his (in hindsight for some of us) platitudes while he was here that made this more than just a manager leaving.

Usual pricks out today.
BR had something good to build on but the intransigence of the board has put paid to any chance of him wishing to continue.
However, going to Leicester proves he is a complete spoofer and bullshitter and I'm not ashamed to admit he had me conned. Money is obviously his motivator as Leicester are just another in a long line of English clubs who have ridden on the crest of the EPL moneybags league.
Celtic are bigger than almost every club in England in every way except in being able to suckle from the Sky/Bt money teat.

Killie and Hearts away are the big testers but yesterday knocked any chance of rangers catching us
on the head.
Players can be booked for leaving the field of play to celebrate especially if it "incites" fans. This rule seems to be applied more stringently with Celtic players.
Illdecide, unfortunately Bayo isn't registered for Europe.

It was a stonewall penalty

It was but 6 penalties in three games now. Only two were penalties.
