Extremely disappointed in some of the reactions to my post about uncontrolled use of pyrotechnics in a crowded area. It's clear that a number of you failed to read it properly and chose to post a knee jerk reaction. That suggests a level of intolerance that I wouldn't expect at Celtic but maybe we're not as inclusive as I previously thought we were. Perhaps some of you would be happy to go back to the days of fights breaking out as people pish down the back of others legs and wading through a sea of cans and bottles as you leave the stadium?

Daft post.

I suspect you are disappointed because so many people did not agree with your suggestion.
Pyrotechnics fail sometimes and just because someone thinks its great fun - some one else may get injured.
In addition, not all of us enjoy the smoke wafting across and you cannot control the breeze.
The only controlled area I would accept is a sealed booth where the person can let off as many of those pyrotechnics as he wishes and enjoy the green smoke and any failure which may occur.
Your comment regarding bottles, cans and pee is not even worthy of a response I find it so silly.

Eff sake yet right COYBIG just don't take them to the game. it's a nonsense more bother than there worth a can't remember coming home from a game and talking about the pyros total waste of time and money.

I wasn’t aware that I’d made a suggestion, Tim. You might also notice, if you read all the posts, that I wasn’t the one who brought up the bottles, cans and pish. I What disappointed me were the comments that would appear to suggest intolerance to what Stevie referred to as the snowflake generation. Stevie you mentioned standing on beer crates back in the day. I remember stuff like that as well. When I started going regularly, Celtic had average home attendances of 22 to 23 thousand. There were very few women at the games and the few that went had to queue for ages to get into the woefully inadequate toilet facilities at the end of the jungle. Bizarrely, I do look back on it fondly and reminisce with my friends at times but is that really what we aspire to now? Wee Fergus came in and changed all that and created the conditions that allowed us to become the dominant force in Scottish football. We are a modern innovative football club, we have the only safe standing section in the country. We have an atmosphere that is the envy of clubs throughout Europe. We’ve done that by accommodation groups like the Green Brigade within a stadium that also caters for families, not by creating an atmosphere that excludes people because they’re not tough enough or not willing to accept an unwelcoming environment.

You should have your pointless little firework party 🎉 before you go to the match.

COYBIG I never said standing on beer crates and dodging cans of piss is what we aspire to nowadays, I was making a comparison of attending games then and now, I was talking about what 8 year olds were subject to then at games compared to now. Do you not think football grounds are more family friendly nowadays? Yet you still complain that your little one gets frightened of the disco lights and a couple of firecrackers. There is no doubt in my mind that many parents nowadays over protect their little darlings. There has always been things going on at matches that doesn't please all, when I was a youngster it was things like mentioned above, nowadays it's smoke bombs and firecrackers. It's life my friend, you can't expect everyone in a huge crowd to behave impeccably . If you want to wrap your little one up in cotton wool and not let her witness real life then that's your choice. For the record there is a wee guy of around 8 and a young girl of around 10 that sit with their dad near me and they love all the smokies and explosions, everyone to their own.

Stevie, you’re right about some parents overprotecting their kids but it was my daughter who made the decision not to go back to European games, not me. She made her decision about European nights because she had the freedom to make that choice. We’ll still go to Saturday afternoon games and no one will be inconvenienced by her decision. However, if a small number of fans decide they want to let off fireworks in a random, uncontrolled manner, there will almost certainly be other fans inconvenienced by that and probably players, managers, stewards and police as well. Ideally, I’d prefer to not have them at all but if the compromise is to have them in a designated area with some level of control about when they can be used, I wouldn’t argue with that.

Your daughter is a kid. Other kids might also love the bangers and noise etc. It's not all about your wean mate.

As for your dig at the old jungle atmosphere. I'd bring that back any day of the week.

Put it this way what would you rather experience, a Galatasaray fenerbahce derby?

Or a man city man Utd derby at the silent Etihad?
