I noticed that there was a lot of commentary in the media the other day about Conor McGregor and his wish to one day visit Celtic Park. This is one of those occasions where I genuinely roll my eyes and have to express bewilderment.
Conor McGregor is a multi-millionaire several times over. In fact, wasn’t there are a story not that long ago that said he was interested in buying up our club?
I thought that was pretty daft at the time and it remains pretty daft, especially as it doesn’t sound as if he could find Celtic Park if he was dropped in the middle of the Gallowgate.
Hey, if it’s such a dream of his to come to a game I am sure it wouldn’t prove difficult to do. I can’t stand these people who express their love and devotion from afar but who never make the least effort to act on it.
I think Rod Stewart is a prancing, Tory buffoon but that man is at Celtic Park on a regular basis. Sean Connery used to come regularly before he inexplicably decided that his friendship with Murray was more important.
Even Snoop has been over here a couple of times, and others, like Gerard Butler and Ross McCall are often pictures in the stands.
Because Celtic Park is actually quite easy to find and if you have the right contacts – and I would imagine he does – getting tickets should be no problem whatsoever. So what is he waiting for? And why has he waited this long?
Honestly, maybe I shouldn’t get cheesed off at this stuff but it really does annoy me when people like him do this stuff. If you dream of visiting Celtic Park and you have time and money you can certainly do it without much difficulty.
The only thing lacking is the motivation, and until he’s sufficiently up for it he shouldn’t embarrass himself with such daft comments.
I’m certain if he visited Celtic Park he would get a warm welcome. He’s an international sports star with a massive profile and who richly deserves every success he’s had in life. His is a proper rags to riches story.
If he’s having trouble finding the place, I suggest one of those online booking sites; they will sort out his flight, his digs and even a nice ride to the ground.
