Saturday last I had another enjoyable enjoying Celtic Hospitality in the Kerrydale Stuite, I was already looking forward to my next visit . However after the short account of someone getting his face lashed immediately before Partick Thisle .
I would have thought we would have full disclosure by now and all hospitality closed for a number of matches . In recent yrs if a member of G B had been involved, stands would have been closed . Was it 900 who were banned for a number of games after GB displayed a banner .
We were told lashing wasn't football related
However that raises more questions, was it drug related, or heavens above was it political because according to UEFA and our pathetic board that's the worse of the worse
Come on, tell us the reason, tell us how everyone in area is going to be punished, so that I might be happy to pay my £85 to go in for pre- match drink.

{Ed007's Note - It seems people are more worried about a banner or smokebomb than a fan getting their jaw ripped.}

I agree if the majority of people in the hospitality were involved in the slashing it should be closed.

Get a grip aindoh so u agree the majority in the section deserve to be banned? So u never sing grace or let the people sing sick of hearing all this rubbish u take the good that comes from the section as Celtic do and condemn when it's appropriate.

Not talking about the singing Welsbhoy, am talking about the paramilitary banners, what do you suggest people who disagree with Provo manipulation of the situation do, maybe ed could have a poll, :do you agree with the peace process?, do you think the armed struggle should go on?, or do you not give a toss?,

Did u actually look at the banners personally thoughtbthey were very clever. Did u disagree with the Palestine display did u disagree with the 1916 banners the point is to provoke and annoy the opposition. Where at any point has anyone said go on with armed struggle I'm sure if u asked anyone involved thatsbthe last thing they would want the peace process and politics are and will be the way forward but this is not a debate I'm trying to make. And as far as not talking about the singing surely that goes hand in hand so it's ok to sing so long as u don't display a banner about it. I'm not saying everyone should agree and get on but fact is there's a load of Celtic fans who give there all to supporting the team and wether U like it or not they support that team because of the way they were brought up and through the beliefs they have. Celtic and politics don't mix? Aye ok tell me another story.

The difference between the GB and hospitality is that it's different people in hospitality every week. If something happens in the GB section then you know who sits there at all times.

I don't sing about people blowing innocent men, women and children up, there are different times and different situations, I don't know how old you are, but maybe one day, when you are older, you will realise, it's all a lot of rubbish, there are no beginnings and ends, there is no alpha and omega, there is no heaven or hell, just do unto others what you would have them do to you, and as for Mohamed, he is about as much a messenger of God as Jimmy swaggart (you might need to Google that)

Aindoh you're getting carried away and starting to sound like our version of Union Jack as far as logical arguments go and being opinionated. No alpha or omega, no heaven or hell etc. Please leave some of us the option of having religious or political views you may not share which is independent of the argument as to whether that may or may not be compatible with expression at a football match. Opinions are like arseholes we all have one. How you get from the GBs banner or songs which show support for a country's fight for freedom or a people within an abandoned six counties demand and struggle for civil rights to equating that with celebrating the blowing up of innocent men and women or opposition to the peace process is beyond me. They were also very much a reaction rightly or wrongly to Linfields horrendous behaviour in the previous game. I'm in Santa Ponsa at the moment and the support for Celtic for televised games is incredible. So much so that the comment was made to me by a Spurs fan after seeing us here for many years that nothing can match Celtics support because QUOTE: 'Celtic are not a football club but an institution and a way of life''. A club born out of charity necessary because of political factors. As Welshboy intimated you will never seperate Celtic and politics as they are intrinsically linked and are part of the reason together with our footballing history and tradition why we are a club like no other whether you, me, the board, EUFA or anyone else agrees, disagrees, likes it or doesn't.

To be honest Aindoh I don't know anybody who sings about blowing up innocent men, women and children. Regardless of your, mine or anyone else on here's opinion about singing the songs at games, I can't think of one rebel song that glorifies that.

This subject has been talked to death. The season has started and the team are flying but still people feel the need to bang on about it. The club have paid the fine and supporter's have paid the price, justly or unjustly. Time to concentrate on other things.

This seems to be the media blowing all this out of proportion again . There was no mention of weapons or knifes. Apparently it was 1 guy who attacked his ex misses new man . Nothing to do with politics or drugs. Just a jealous idiot who had too much " hospitality " . Seems very incident is being blown way out of proportion to blacken the name of our club . If it happened in the street or a pub? Would it even get a coloum in the advertiser?

11 Aug 2017 17:29:30
@jfp88 - can you please leave my name out of petty squabbles within the Celtic support? Or is it really all about Rangers even when you are on holiday?

Ainodh, my daughter is a barrister and she says. She would have no problem defending Celtic and the banner which annoyed loyalists . There is no proof or no reference to paramilitary on that banner .

Aindoh, I doubt if it took 900 GB members to hold up banner but our club banned 900 to be sure.

Club won't even tell us the reason for lashing.
I won't go back to I am sure it is safe.

11 Aug 2017 18:43:56
Ed, fur fox sake, Your at it Chris! Been in hospitality more times than Ed has answered me on here!

You won't go back? Well the incident WAS NOT CELTIC RELATED! It was over the head of a woman! where two manual workers @ a night out held a previous grudge!

It was PERSONAL and ISOLATED incident if it had happened on the terraces it would not have made the headlines it did IMO.

Jamiebhoy, I think the lashing of a man's face is more serious than displaying a banner . Celtic deliver public punishment for holding up a banner . People who were abroad were punished .
But lashing with a knife results in silence, from Celtic .
I still don't know what caused the lashing, just an uncorraberated account from yourself.
