Racist Lazio banner deserves severe punishment – closure of the stand that displayed the offensive banner…
It will be interesting to see how UEFA deal with Lazio after the disguising banners their supporters aimed at the Celtic fans on Tuesday night. One in particular which can be construed as racist and glorifying genocide by mocking those who perished in the nineteenth century Irish famine.
And that’s the one that was displayed inside the Stadio Olimpico so there is no get out opportunity for UEFA on this one.
As Celtic supporters we’ve had to listen to this disgraceful and discriminatory bile for many a year, but only in Scotland. It makes you wonder, how did the Lazio supporters get that information? It wouldn’t be cynical to suggest they had a helping hand with their distasteful and racist choice of words.
But from who I wonder? Well you don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to uncover who was responsible. It’s clear that sick minds merged for this disgraceful exercise. Yes our rivals from across the city will have undoubtedly been more than helpful in helping their Italian counterparts conjure up their derogatory message aimed at the travelling Celtic supporters.
Both sets of supporters deserve each other due to their nasty, backward beliefs and political views. It will be interesting to see UEFA’s response to the racist banners. Although knowing them they will most likely turn a blind eye, a bit like their colleagues in Scotland.
We’ll not bother to show you their other disgusting banners.
Just an Ordinary Bhoy
