BBC Sport - Celtic suspend fans after damage to Motherwell's Fir Park


Celtic coming down hard on them for once. Although I feel the 3rd pic is just free speech.

Ive always said Celtic fans were scumbags =)

I think flares and smoke bombs should be allowed, maybe organised better as to not have any injuries. While I agree that the Bobby Sands thing is free speech we all know UEFA doesnt allow free speech and on top of that outside of Bobby being a hunger striker, I bet 95% of them don't know anything else about it. Its just an anti English/Brit thing that very few can see the irony in.

hmm.. when they get independence next year, it will scupper their chances of being in the English Premier League lol.. (well I think it will be a yes vote, and personally as an English person I don't care if it is...)

They'd talk about Monaco, but yeah, Scotland is a city-state right? Monaco can't support a professional league, Scotland does and can.

England doesn't want or need the Old Firm, and nervous clubs will never vote for extra relegation spaces to accommodate them. The funny thing is listening to them talking as if they would be an asset to an already strong league system. The only ones who would benefit would be those Scottish clubs left behind who would have something to compete for; now that would be interesting. But if they really want to move south of the border they could serve their time in the lower leagues and work their way up like the Welsh have done.

Pigs and grunts comes to mind.

Why a banner featuring a terrorist hunger striker has a place at a football ground I don't know.

Sad that the media at large still sees Celtic as the darlings of football, poor oppressed folks that they are.

He wasnt a terrorist hunger striker. The occupying Gov is the terrorist but thats for a different forum. I do agree with them being viewed as the darlings when theyre anything but.
