What is it billed as the Dublin Decider or some BS ? I hope you see where my hatred for the FAI, Irish media and 99% of Irish football "fans" comes from just because of that name.

Yeah it is. Its a joke. A lot of people are going mad. Mainly LOI fans.

I'm only going the game cause there is 12 of us going. Hoping for a good game but its only a friendly so I don't really care to be honest.

What Celtic fans? The Celtic fans from Glasgow or Ireland? Most Glaswegian Celtic fans I know also go to Scotland games. Tradition and history ties them to Ireland. That isn't a bad thing they are many similar examples, it when the bigotry comes in.

From Ireland, outside of bigotry I dont give the Scottish ones much thought.

The only reason 99pc of Irish fans support Celtic is for bigoted reasons.

Irish fans Paul. Have absolutely no problem with Scottish fans supporting Celtic. They are a Scottish team.

I don't have a problem with anyone who supports Celtic or any team for that matter. I just hate the reason the Irish fans support them. Its almost like a law over here to support them. Who do you support? Celtic of course. Why? Eh, because they are Irish.

celtic fc doesn't have a culture of bigotry , irish nationalism may be part of their culture ( and some people might rightfull be offended by this ) but that's not the same thing , rangers on the other hand had institutionalised bigotry at its core for decades
