Celtic chairman Iain Bankier (no, me nether) has come out and strongly condemned the fans who indulged in misguided bed sheet graffiti and some firework throwing.
“We have to drive this out of the club. It’s not only doing us harm but Scottish football is harmed. It’s one or two silly, juvenile boys doing funny, kid pranks and it’s bringing the whole of Scottish football down. It’s overtaking what was a fantastic performance.
We’ll weed them out. We know this guy and we’ve got him. There were arrests made last night and these guys will not get back intoCelticPark.
We will just keep on that road until we have weeded them all out. We’re talking to the supporters organisations about what they can do for the people in the travelling crowd to self-police, the way the Tartan Army do.
We are looking to take every measure we can take. This has to stop.”
Most of the statement is welcome while other bits just are spew inducing, shake of the head lazily stereotype misconceptions.
Though, the Tartan Army comparison will have those who have come into contact with the Doe A Dearing kilted loons wondering what he is going on about.
