Leigh Griffiths – Racist ?
Well we all knew he was capable of it before he signed, so why the moral outrage when it is allegedly confirmed by that bastion of truth and dignity the Daily Record ? Remember this is a paper that stinks of rotten succulent lamb and certainly could not be in any way described as a pro Celtic newspaper. Thugs and Thieves anyone, The constant demonisation of Neil Lennon ? The Record taking the moral high ground is akin to Kim Jong-un winning humanitarian of the Century.
Racism in any form is disgusting , it shows a lack of reasoned thinking. However Celtic fans jumping on the moral outrage bandwagon without looking at that video in perspective really annoys me. First of all it is clear that this video was taken before Celtic fined and gave Griffiths a warning about his future behavior. Therefor we can’t tell if he has changed his ways since. If the video was taken after Celtic disciplined him then I would be happy for him to part company with us. But it wasn’t.
So what happens now, will Celtic take further actions, will the SFA issue a notice of compliance ?? Also have Celtic seen the video released today and if so was it part of last weeks disciplinary measures ? No doubt we’ll find out soon enough.
Sadly it’s now the case that some people on social media are sitting about just waiting for the next ‘outrage’ to come along so they can tell us all what lovely moral citizens they are. I’m personally very wary of such people.
