i was at the game last night and I'm in standing section just up from the green brigade. I love what they bring to the game and can see both sides of the argument when they divide opinion.
As for last night tho the banners were intentional in there meaning. The songbook from the section wasn't all down to them at nearly every opportunity they would get a Celtic song going but the songs were started all over the place and carried through it was reminiscent of the old days in the jungle I think what a lot of people don't recognise is that the green brigade are only a certain amount of people in there and yes tho they are very instrumental in what happens they are not to blame for all that goes on. I struggled to see anyone (rightly or wrongly myself included) who wasn't joining in whenever a song was started. I've spent the last 2 seasons in the section and rarely has that happened.

The solduers song is the irish national anthem so we're clear on that one but there was a few wee sneaky ones thrown in HH.

Agreed Welshboy-it wasn't just the Green Brigade it was spread around the whole stadium. It's all about opnions as they say but I sit right beside them and heard or saw nothing sectarian. If the decision is made to ban the Green Brigade then to nearly quote a song 'If they do they're going to have to ban us all'. Like the old poppy chestnut the political topic is once again likely to divide opinion between us all 'one and all'. I think the Police landrover barricades across the roads and Strathclyde's finest looking and behaving like the PSNI probably set the tone.

im sure Rodgers being of a family of mixed religion and a man proud of the peace of his country will be delighted at being placed next to an IRA man. im not going to be a hypocrite and slate people for singing Republican songs but its 2017. it has to stop at Celtic park. it has nothing to do with Football. im all for people going to a gig for rebels or a sash bash on the other side but it has nothing to do with football. The GB make a good atmosphere that's for sure but they are not bigger than the club. i sit above the SS and sat in it. i have not heard a song the two boys at the front have not started. all that happens is we get fined and then the tickets will go up.

20 Jul 2017 17:23:44
Agreed on one point JJPD-associating Rodgers was innaproptiate.

20 Jul 2017 17:29:48
Not disagreeing with you but it was ok for the Celtic view to sell issues using paddy McCourt in the same way.

20 Jul 2017 18:05:15
The Ulster Unionist Party are now condemning the Green Brigade as well. Feck off. When you don't stop me and my family walking and driving freely around the streets of Airdrie come back and tell me you're offended. C'mon Celtic fans-develop some collective balls and refuse to acccept the biased views of the SFA, UEFA and Scottish MSM. Attending Mass will soon become an offence because it offends some sash wearing drum beating knuckle dragging Neanderthal. What a state we're in Scotland.

20 Jul 2017 18:12:34
I don't think there is anything wrong with the older rebel songs, I was brought up on them, but I thought the banner was unnecessary, everyone on here gets in a fankle if the Israelis or the Syrians or whoever blow up women and children, but the provos were doing it years ago, and I don't think we need to be reminded of it at a football match,

20 Jul 2017 18:24:07
JFP. You're right. Time we told the SFA, UEFA, UUPish party, the DUPish party SMSM and any others to get stuffed. Ps. the best mass is St Aloysius in the Barras. COYBIG.

20 Jul 2017 18:32:54
Sorry I know more than a few will disagree but we can't bleat about the other half being up to their knees in fenian blood when we're glorifying para military organisations.

20 Jul 2017 18:45:30
Cheers VT. I'll do Mass at St. Aloysius after my next trip to Bills Tool Store. Keep the Faith. God Bless! โ˜˜๏ธ.

20 Jul 2017 18:48:44
Well said JFP, some people just melt away, We are not and will never be as a Mr Roy Kean said " A Prawn Sandwich Brigade" The Green Brigade is an interegal part of our club, helping us to remember where our founders came from, the reasons why our club was formed, and for me making the issues like Ireland, The occupation of Palestine, human rights in China, etc, etc a focus to a world wide audience. How many plaudits and how much respect have we gained through the endeavors of the Green Brigade, they should be cherished and we should all stand up for them. it would be a shame if we let the moans of knuckldraggers and low life establishment figures get in our way, and if anybody wants a prawn sandwich, they know where they can go,

20 Jul 2017 18:52:25
Careful though. My da's a blue nose and has been propositioned many times when he's sat in the car outside waiting for me, the mother and my sisters.

20 Jul 2017 18:55:54
Rangobango nobody last night was up to their knees in anybody's blood. One mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter. Surrely if they can help thier state sponsored 'terrorist' heroes with displays on the pitch and the parachute regiment abseiling from the Govan Stand we have a right to remember other brave men. Maggie once said Mandella was a terrorist. To the Irish the leaders of the rebellion were rebels then but they're heroes now honoured on the 100th anniversary. By a fee books big fella learn some history and then give us your opinion.

20 Jul 2017 19:02:08
My op wasn't to start a debate on what's right or wrong it was to highlight that the green brigade can't be taken into account for everything that goes on. Last night proved that it runs deep throughout more than a "minority" of our club as I said myself included. Celtic is and always will be more than just a football club, history and traditions of our club should never be forgotten.

20 Jul 2017 19:05:04
Cracker VT! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘โ˜˜๏ธ.

20 Jul 2017 19:46:33
Remember, as the great Xavi said. Celtic, like Barcelona, are more than a football club. Our clubs are a symbol of a culture and community that has not always been made welcome in their respective countries.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah because Celtic fans REALLY need lessons on our Club from the likes of him.}

20 Jul 2017 19:56:04
no matter what way you dress it up football is football and should be kept as such if you want more get involved in politics and make changes where it matters.

20 Jul 2017 20:04:03
I didn't see the banner as remembering "other brave men", I saw it showing the difference between the ones who believe in the peace process and the ones who don't.

20 Jul 2017 20:34:41
Did u actually look at the banners

The paramilitary one was a of a gb member

The Rodgers one is one identical to a front page of the Celtic view depicting paddy McCourt "danger genius at work" tho we all know the meaning behind it.

As for the stair blocking that was a joke police were everywhere on the aisles.

{Ed007's Note - I don't think the Brendan Rodgers banner was included in the charge mate, it only states an illicit banner in the singular. If it is included though that's a joke but then again what do you expect from UEFA?}

20 Jul 2017 20:55:16
True mate was more aimed at those in the support showing there disgust at it.

On a side note knowing how much the sfa love us wonder if they'll be looking at retrospective action for wee griff tying scarf to post at greyskull now uefa have done it lol.

{Ed007's Note - I don't think there was anything at all wrong with the Rodgers banner, if we had only had that and the Brendan's undefeated army one we wouldn't have been charged. The one depicting the Oglach was always going to cause problems and that's the annoying thing for me, the young lads in the GB aren't stupid and they must have known it would lead to a charge after the Bobby Sands and William Wallace one. It'll be another slap on the wrist fine and TRIFC fans will talk about it more than Celtic fans will.
There's no chance of the SFA retrospectively charging LG and I hope this episode hasn't put him off doing it in future - is tying a scarf to a goalpost in front of Celtic fans any more provocative than the Ronny Roar in front of Celtic fans? It's another joke of a charge that Celtic should show some over balls and fight back.}

20 Jul 2017 20:57:31
Wasn't at the game last night as im on holiday. Id hoped we would have moved on from the IRA patter but by the sounds of it no! We should all be proud of the Irish connection to our club but we're a Scottish team and the provo patter has got to stop. No good sagging the other mob when we sing songs about glorifying people who were killers.

20 Jul 2017 21:06:38
We all know the meaning of the "paramilitary "one.

20 Jul 2017 21:33:49
JFP nothing wrong with my historical education. grew up in heart of family mired in middle of the troubles. I like most in this country wish we could move on from the marching neanderthals and the old songs and hatreds. I prefer John lennons take on life "Give peace a chance" and in particular disapointed some sunk to the other sides level sorry if that makes me a panty wetter. If Martin McGuiness and Ian Paisley can find some harmony there is hope.

20 Jul 2017 22:10:16
Think some get there recent history from books and political pamphlets, and some others have lived through it.

20 Jul 2017 22:48:18
Ed. re LG. 'Over balls'? U need a break. lol! :)

{Ed007's Note - Hahahaha I never noticed that! It's been a long couple of days mate, we've had a guy in tiling and he's been here at 8 am both mornings and the Mrs is on the early shift. 'Over balls'....
