Motherwell the "Family Club" ?

A sad reflection of anti Catholic Scotland.

We were alerted to this video last night by a fellow Celtic fan. While most of the attention of the media is on Celtic and Rangers supporters  sectarianism and bigotry is rife among many other supports and communities in Scotland.
The truth is that the majority of this bigotry in Scotland is aimed at Roman Catholics, anyone of Irish decent and Celtic supporters regardless of their religion or ethnic origin.
The video is from a Motherwell supporters Scottish Cup Final pre-match party. Motherwell are one of many Scottish football clubs who publicise themselves as inclusive “family clubs” where bigotry, prejudice and sectarianism never rears it’s ugly head. The video sadly shows that this is not the case.
The pre game entertainment was provided by the an amalgamation titled as: Crown Defenders ” Motherwell Loyal1886″. Who are basically an Orange Order band.   I doubt that they are sympathisers of the Roman Catholic faith, Celtic Football club or any ethnic minority.
Motherwell will claim that this is a minority and so will Dundee, Hearts, Kilmarnock, St Mirren, St Johnstone etc. However the truth is that we all have a minority but some of us have less of a minority than others.
What Motherwell can’t deny is that their supporters are seen and heard to be singing the line “King James and all his rebel scum” during a renditioning of the Rangers and Orange Lodge favourite “The cry was no surrender”.
I’m dying to hear what Pat Nevin an Rob Maclean have to say on the matter.
This video may go some way to explaining why Motherwell supporters Unfurled a Union flag as they were leaving Celtic Park last month when their team were down 3-0.
We all know the truth that a lot of these “Family Clubs” in Scotland are mainly anti Catholic for the fact that their narrow minded support can’t differentiate between Irish and Roman Catholic.
It’s time that this Government and the Judiciary admitted that that most sectarian related violence is directed towards not only Roman Catholics but any one of any religion who wears a Celtic top or scarf.
Enjoy the family clubs pre game entertainment

 
So how is this new law going to deal with this ?
Unlike BBC Scotland we provide real evidence of sectarian singing.

SAY NO TO THE BILL

  1. This will put the cat amongst the pidgeons, Well Mr Salmond instead of singling out Celtic Fans, wheres your comment on this. No denying it now.

  2. Looks like the Scottish Government will have to take a closer look at exactly what goes on throughout Scottish society as a whole and don’t just finger point at certain sections i.e Celtic and Rangers football supporters.
    Will be very interesting when they release the statistics for the variation of attacks on Catholics and Protestants as a percentage.
    I would bet my monthly mortgage that the Catholic attacks WILL be MUCH HIGHER.
    Enough said 🙁

  3. Whats the betting this will be ignored.
    This little video doesn’t suit the Scottish Governments agenda.
    For more years than I care to remember sectarianism has afflicted Scotland, and has yet to be challenged except by UEFA, I wonder why.
    Whats the odds of a sectarian attack against a Rangers fan compared to a Celtic fan whether it be before during or after an O-D F–M game. The Scottish Government know but wont let the public know.
    Who perpetuates the domestic violence after an O-D F–M game, whats the betting the Scottish Government know.
    Alex Salmond your up sh-t creek without a paddle.

  4. What a load if crap…I suggest you go onto YouTube and see the vile racist and bigoted songs Celtic fans sing..get a life and get your own house in order

  5. Anyone remember the lad Quinn, who played for Motherwell being sectarianly abused by his own support a few years back. The poor lad had the temerity to stick a finger up to those guilty and recieved a severe reprimand by the club. You couldn’t make it up!
    Anyone ever at teir midden of a ground down the years will have heard their fans foul mouthed anti-irish and anti-catholic abuse. I dont differentiate in Scotland….theres Scotland and a selection of hate-filled diddy teams of varying degrees of venom and on field success.

  6. As a Celtic fan I’ve never been to this ground in years and will never return, I only attend Celtic park now I refuse to Give these bigots my hard earned cash. Let them survive on there on own. Wonder if we,ll hear anything from former employee Pat Nevin on this issue because we know Mr Nevin will speak out against sectarianism wherever it raises it ugly head.
    Bhoycott this cesspit I say.

  8. Shock horror… Motherwell fans have alliegences to the Orange Order. Get a life lads, i’m pretty sure their are Motherwell fans that also have alliegences to Republican movements. Going to watch an orange flute band prior to a game of football is not illegal. What is illegal is spouting this sh~te inside a football ground, like what happens at Celtic Park week in week out. Get over it.

    1. Nice bit of WHATABOUTRY there. Give us a list of illegal songs sung inside Celtic park now. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but the Orange Order is a religious organisation where as the Republican movement is political. You can’t really compare the two.
      Thanks for your opinion.

    That’s just total bullsh~t. Anything to back that up?

  12. I am amazed at the amount of folks in this country who cannot tell the difference between openly racist and sectarian bigotry and overtly political rebel songs.
    I happen to think that the rebel songs have no place in football stadia in this day and age, but they are not songs of hate. If people are offended then they have a right to be offended but the songs are not sectarian.
    The root problem here is that a vast tranch if this society think IRA, Irish, Celtic, Celtic Supporters & green biscuit wrappers are all Catholic! That’s just how stupid they are. With their intolerant hatred of that faith they think anything to do with it is sectarian, the fools
    Final point to put an end to their ill-conceived thick ad mince perspective, the majority of the founder members of the IRA were Protestant! Go read a book on history and it’s there in black and white.

  14. As soon as you posted this James, I wondered how long the “whataboutery” would take…..
    They just don’t get it, these bigots.
    Racist Sc~m

  16. Im sorry but I just dont hear any bigotry in this Video whatsoever maybe i missed it but all I can hear is Well songs dont like the “my old man says im a well fan” song because thats a song that used to be sung by the Casuals at Well games.
    I think you are trying to find offence where there is none.
    Amongst the Well fans there is some undesirables however nowhere near as bad as other clubs in Scotland and England.
