Yesterday Celtic fans along with some other supporters stood shoulder to shoulder in Glasgow’s George Square. We all stood there to show our resistance and defiance against the worst piece of legislation passed outside North Korea.
The people who turned out were a credit to their clubs and fellow supporters. Jeanette Findley’s speech was simply inspiring. She hit every target with the accuracy of a top sniper.
One thing was missing though. With the vast majority of supporters there being Celtic supporters once again our board could not bring themselves to offer any support for the fans who are the lifeblood of our club. For all their social media outlets including the web site and Celtic TV this board could not even offer one word of support to our fans who are being criminalised and the rest of us who stand beside them.
Peter Lawwell and his board have done a magnificent job in turning the club into a stand alone business. There is no doubt about that and they should be given praise for their efforts. However somewhere along the line they have shown a total disrespect for the Celtic support. Parallels are now being drawn with the old board in as much as there is now once again a breakdown in communication and trust between the life blood of the club and it’s current custodians. This is really unfortunate and it is something that needs to be sorted out ASAP.
What’s the point of having a well run business when you have a dwindling and disenfranchised client base Peter ? That does not make a sustainable business model Peter.
