Celtic Confirm Rainbow Laces Support

Celtic have confirmed their support for Stonewall Scotland’s Rainbow Laces campaign which will run from now until the Betfred Cup Final at Hampden.

The campaign was developed in order to stamp homophobia, biphobia and transphobia out of football as well as creating awareness for LGBT+ issues. It attempts to change perceptions of this community that sport isn’t for them and to showcase that they are welcome.

Scott Brown, who announced the campaign via the Official Celtic website, spoke of his delight at being part of a campaign that aims to eradicate a horrible social issue whilst giving positive support for the LGBT+ community.

“We are delighted again to be part of this year’s Rainbow Laces Campaign. This year’s initiative once again addresses a very important issue in society which needs to be tackled.

“Therefore, we are delighted to once again offer our support to the Rainbow Laces Week of Action for 2019 – and promote the very important message that sport is for all.”

In 2019, it is sad that this has to happen but it is incredible the support that the campaign has received from fans, players and managers. We all have a part to play in changing attitudes towards LGBT people in sport.

Celtic started as a club open to all and this remains as true today as it was back in 1888. Proud of this, Celtic, well done.
