Reliving 9 In A Row From The Stands, Best Fan Moments Of 2012/13

After we recently rekindled some memories with the best fan videos of 2011/12, when the Celtic support was at its incredible best, this article focuses on the finest fan moments as the Hoops made it two titles in succession.

Having been raucous in the previous two seasons, Celtic Park had a more relaxed feel about it in domestic competition of 2012/13. It had been over two decades since anyone outside of the big two in Glasgow had won the league title and with Rangers liquidated, forming a new club which entered the third division, the Hoops were a cert for the trophy.

Nevertheless, there was still a lot of fun and good atmospheres to be had, though the European nights are where the support showed its real magic.

  1. Celtic Park celebrates a comfortable second title in a row as the Bhoys sweep aside Inverness. Cue a full stadium rendition of C’mon You Bhoys In Green.
  2. the Green Brigade flashed their phone lights at the police in protest at the constant filming of the section and the Offensive Behaviour At Football Act (now repealed), the rest of Celtic Park joined in, creating a unique style of protest… the likes of which we now only see in tribute to the Lisbon Lions in the 67th minute.
  3. The highlight of Celtic v Hibernian in April 2013 was when the four horsemen banner made a return and the Craig Whyte banner was passed around Paradise. It made it’s way from the Green Brigade section in 111 all the way around to the directors box. “Gie it to the Lawell,” was replaced with chants of “Craigy Craigy Whyte.”
  4. In January 2013, Hearts were in money trouble. It’s fair to say there’s no love lost between the clubs and as Celtic cruised to a 4-1 victory, the entire stadium did a huddle celebrating their anticipated liquidation. Meanwhile, the Green Brigade produced a moving display, with the words flats glorious flats, as a bulldozer demolishes Tynecastle!

  5. And who could forget that infamous trip to Dens Park on boxing day 2012? A sublime atmosphere.
