Fly Open Air have issued an update regarding their planned dance festival in Dubai in the wake of The Scottish Government’s decision to close the air bridge with the UAE owing to the rising cases in Dubai. The news comes just days after Celtic returned from Dubai and their controversial warm weather training camp. Despite it being a natural reaction to the rising cases in the region, the festival organisers have reacted badly to the news, so much so that they have decided to include ‘Blame Neil Lennon’ in the post.
What a truly bizarre and absolutely embarrassing episode this has been for Celtic FC. Culminating in a festival organiser blaming the club for the restrictions getting imposed when they are planning a festival amidst a global pandemic. Right enough, they are probably wondering why a Scottish football team are travelling to Dubai for training in the middle of a global pandemic.
