Nothing but good to take from the game tonight, on the park.
But reports from friends who were at the game are less joyous than they might be, for one simple reason; there is a stone selfish element of our support who no matter where they are in a stadium insist on standing up and get very aggressive and arsey when they are challenged on it.
These people need to sit the Hell down at games.
And clubs need to steward this situation far better than they currently do.
If you pulled this kind of crap in a cinema you’d be out.
If you pulled it at rugby or any other social event where you get allocated a seat and don’t sit in it, causing everyone around you to miss the show then you’d be ejected right quick.
We get allocated seats at games to sit in them; that is so everyone can experience the game the same way.
Simple stuff, you’d think.
Now, granted, there is a section of every support which does as it pleases, but I would dearly love to see this practice ended amongst ours. There’s no need for it. If everyone’s in seat then, as a general rule, everyone can see the game.
I last wrote about this subject after the League Cup Final at Hampden last season where the enjoyment of thousands of fans around me was spoiled by two entire rows of dickheads who simply refused to acknowledge those behind them … and it needs to be pointed out that everyone in front of them was sitting down, so they had absolutely no excuse.
It is high time Celtic did something about this, since the clubs who are responsible for stewarding away grounds don’t bother their backsides. This is not such an issue at Celtic Park, where there is some semblance of order.
Some of our supporters simply have no consideration for their fellow fans.
They should get some. We’re all on the same side. Allegedly.
