Green Brigade stage sit-in protest against Bernard Higgins

The Green Brigade are not leaving Celtic Park any time soon. As fans made their way to the exits following the victory over Aberdeen, the North Curve Celtic remained noisy and filled. The section are protesting the rumoured appointment of ACC Bernard Higgins.

Higgins was Assistant Chief Constable and repeatedly came under fire during his tenure in the role due to the treatment of football fans. The legislation was flawed and its subsequent repeal highlighted the enormous amount of injustices that were transpiring. Celtic fans across social media have united against the potential appointment. An open letter was recently penned, signed by a number of supporters clubs, fan media sites and fan organisations. It will be interesting to see how this pans out over the next few weeks. Surely Celtic cannot hire a man with a background that involved targeting football fans.

Higgins was recently deployed dealing with COP26 but alarmingly there is yet to be a denial from Celtic that he is being considered for any role. A question was recently asked about Higgins at the AGM, allowing the perfect opportunity to issue a denial but it is alarming that this rumour wasn’t shot down and even the attempts to justify an appointment.
