A shocking and disgusting video has been published online that appears to show a number of Celtic FC football ‘fans’ singing an offensive song about the murdered soldier Lee Rigby.
Fusilier Lee Rigby of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was attacked and killed by Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, southeast London.
Celtic were playing a friendly match against Sunderland when the footage was taken on the local streets around the Stadium of Light.
Traditionally, Celtic Football Club supporters are anti-Great Britain and sympathetic towards republican causes, while their great Glasgow rivals Rangers FC are loyal to Her Majesty The Queen and Unionist causes.
Therefore, this isn’t the first time that Celtic ‘fans’ have been reported to be singing offensive song and chants of this nature.
The powers that be at Celtic including their manager Brendan Rogers have made repeated requests in the media for ‘The Green Brigade’ and other factions of their supporters to behave both inside stadiums and outside.
The club have even been fined by UEFA on a number of occasions in the past for this sort of singing and banner waving.
Yet again, the awful murder of Lee Rigby is being used to make a political point, and this has to stop.
We hope that these people are identified and that the club acts accordingly.
They may have limited powers due to the fact that the singing took place outside of an organised event venue, but at the same time the board at the club will want to distance themselves from this behaviour.
