The desperate cynicism of our club, which we’ve seen before, has shown itself today in the all-too predictable decision to push Ange Postecoglou himself to the front of their indefensible, amoral plans to play the Ibrox club in an “international friendly.”
Everything about this is highly suspect and reeks.
The decision to use Ange Postecoglou himself in such a breathtakingly cynical manner is an utter disgrace for which those involved should forever be ashamed, if they had any shame at all.
This deserves the outright condemnation of every fan group.
Celtic has announced that we will “take part” in a “four team tournament” in Australia at the end of November. Obviously with something like this you’d publish the details of the other teams involved and what the fixture list is likely to be.
We’ve not named any of them. What does that tell you? That we aren’t sure who they are?
No, they know exactly who they are, and who we’ll be playing.
The Australian media leaked that one earlier today, and the websites have been vocal in their opposition to it.
Every Celtic fan should be boycotting the whole rancid idea.
I think their using Ange to promote this – and that man has no idea what the depth of feeling amongst our fans towards the very idea of this is – reeks of contempt not only for us but for him as well.
They’ve stitched him up here, good and proper.
Do they really think that promoting it through his image makes it any more palatable to those of us who believe it to be a full-on disgrace?
This compounds the disgrace.
It multiplies the disgrace.
I think for a lot of us it is going to seal the deal on how we approach our coverage of this whole “tournament” as it gets closer.
Don’t be surprised to see a unified call for a full-scale Celtic social media blackout of the match and everything to do with it.
The board may want to promote this dire shite, but the rest of us don’t have to and some of us absolutely won’t.
