I'll never understand why some soccer fans have to be so damn violent.

Nice responses by the Celtic fans.

The responses with the cleaning items could be construed as racist. Not all that "nice" if you ask me.

What an idiotic comment. It was ''take a picture with anything'' not cleaning products in particular. People took a picture with anything not a weapon. They were just the few I chose. The Turks found it funny, but for some very strange reason you bring race into it? Very sinister 5h!t that.

How so? Are you suggesting cleaning elements were "randomly" selected? Suppose, as an American, I wanted to taunt Mexican fans who posted dumb photos with a knife and I responded with a picture of myself with a weed whacker or mop. I would absolutely be called a racist.

The ***** shot was a brilliant move. Some of the others, not so much. If it's all in good mutual fun, have at it. But it could have different appearances to those not in on the joke.

But it hasn't I am in Scotland it has been all over the news. People with cups, action figures, dildos, lamps - anything other than a knife hence the #ThatsNotAKnife hashtag.

All the racist 5h!t in this world and you try and turn this into what it is not?

Racist ? Are you serious ? You really need to get a life, unless that offends you too.

Is a ***** classed as a cleaning implement? I didn't realise!?
