Bundesliga fan return shows how UK Government decision is bonkers

CELTIC supporters could potentially go a full season without seeing their team in the flesh as the virus threatens to spin out of control once again. However, with news that Boris Johnson was happy for theatres to re-open but not stadiums, fans were looking longingly at the return to stadiums in Germany.

Social distancing is still in play in Germany as they tackle the virus but Dortmund have managed to get 11,500 supporters into the ground, wearing masks and keeping their distance. It has been a gradual return, which is necessary given the volatile nature of the virus but it should surely have some influence over the decision to stop the return to football for supporters.

Fans are the lifeblood of the game, especially in Scotland. Junior teams up to Celtic will struggle if they do not have fans through the gates and spending money. This is a cause of concern in the Scottish game with many having already paid money to have planning procedures in place to protect the spectators coming to stadiums.
