Predictably enough, hacks line-up to have a pop at Green Brigade

The hacks in the Mainstream Media all predictably enough have been lining up to have a pop at the Green Brigade…

Bill Leckie had a go last week, Hugh Keevins was next at the weekend, and now others like the loathsome Tom English are also at it. What’s that? Having a pop at the Green Brigade of course.

It’s similar to the behaviour of lemmings. Or Wolves because they hunt in packs and there’s safety in numbers. One jumps or bites and the rest follow. That’s fine, it’s a free country after all, but where is their condemnation of other supporters? Yip you can see the tumbleweed roll by.

The only crime the Green Brigade and the thousands of other Celtic supporters are guilty of is showing solidarity to an oppressed people. Nothing else.

Pyrotechnics you say? Well it’s not a thing exclusive to the Green Brigade, other supporters use them also. It’s a fact. How do we know? Well we have seen it with our own eyes.

Disturbances at away venues? Other fan groups do that too, some even wreck disability areas in the process.

That’s all the accusations you could throw at the Green Brigade, but is it worth condemnation and endless column inches by our hacks while all other ultra groups in Scottish football get off scot free?

It’s not as if the Green Brigade are guilty of throwing glass bottles on the pitch, scarring the opposition clubs employees in the process.

It’s not as if they flew a banner at a recent European game with sectarian overtones on it. Or displayed a Totenkopf is it?

No all this is unworthy of comment or condemnation in the eyes of our spineless hacks.

They are not fit for purpose and belong nowhere near Celtic Park.

Just an Ordinary Bhoy

About Author

An ordinary everyday Celtic supporters hailing and still residing in Govan in the shadows of the enemy. I’m a season ticket holder. I Witnessed my first Celtic game in 1988 and have attended when I can ever since. Growing up in the 90s I witnessed Celtic at their lowest, and now appreciate the historic success we enjoy today. I enjoy writing about this wonderful football club and hopefully will continue to do so. I’ve always been a keen writer and initially started this a hobby. My ambition is to one day become as good an author as my fellow Celtic Star colleagues.


  1. Personally, I think the GB are outnof order. Time & time again they’ve breached rules, overstepped the mark & cost the club financially.
    They seem to think they are the voice or conscience of the club or fan base, they are not. The speak for themselves and SOME others.
    It’s about time the club took action and I for one am hopeful this puts a stop to their nonsense.

    “The only crime the Green Brigade and the thousands of other Celtic supporters are guilty of is showing solidarity to an oppressed people. Nothing else.”

    Rubbish. They raised a banner in support of a terrorist group mere hours after 1400 innocent men, women and children were murdered. That banner was not about the people of palestine – “Victory to the resistance”….who murdered babies, raped women, tortured, beheaded innocent civilians while screaming . Killed entire families. Kidnapped 200 ppl and held them hostage.

    Flying the flag of a recognised terrorist group at the Athletici Madrid game? The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and its militant wing (Abu Ali Mustapha Brigades) are terrorist scum who want to wipe Israel off the map and have been involved in plane hijackings, assassinations, suicide bombings, and the likes of the November 2014 Jerusalem synagogue massacre in which four Jewish worshippers and a policeman were killed with axes, knives, and a gun.

  3. Do you know ANYTHING about the Middle East? From your constant support of the, so called, Green Brigade, I doubt it.
    Support for Hamas, support for the IRA. What next, admiration for Hezbollah, money for Putin. Your stance has been unforgivable. I’m delighted the ‘GB’ has been banished and done with this fanzine (sic).
