The furore over the trip to Dubai is much ado about nothing if you ask me.

The way everyone and their dug wants to put the boot in, only shows that it is a witch hunt.

I don't recall there being such an angry response when they were playing players who had not been tested or when their players were having illegal house parties and breaking government and football rules.

LAW I don’t give a monkeys about what the MSSM or anybody else thinks about the Dubai trip but the reason for my outrage and furore is that we’d to play HIBS with 13 players self isolating and no strikers as a result which effectively put the last nail in the league coffins lid and will need to do the same again against Livingston.

That is true about certain people in media are loving this. But as a club Celtic have to take responsibility for there actions and IMO Celtic have to hold there hands up for the mistakes that they make. I just hope and wish they take on board Celtic supporters views and learn from the mistakes they have made in the past two years and really do move forward.

13 Jan 2021 20:12:15
I didn't agree with Dubai but when we play in European comps we fly all over Europe and then come home what's the difference. and you have internationals. love someone to ask wee nic her thoughts on that.

13 Jan 2021 20:28:13
Are you having a laugh? Instead of pi**ing off for a p*ss up we could have played a couple of games that we have in hand and really put them under pressure but now because of the wee holiday we have dropped more points against Hibs and will probably drop more against Livi.
Also how many fans that have paid hundreds of ££££ for season tickets and merch had there holidays cancelled this year just to then watch the team jet off after getting beat by Sevco Again.
Oh and just to let you know that both there players got 7 game bans for breaking lockdown rules.

13 Jan 2021 20:39:13
Mally there are experts appointed to advise the Scottish government on every specialist area including construction, manufacturing and sport etc. I think the First Minister (or wee nic as your fellow Unionists call her) has responsibility for the bigger picture and has more on her plate than where Celtic’s have planned their next booze cruise.

13 Jan 2021 20:54:28
I don’t really understand why a few of the games in hand weren’t played, maybe a hope form would be better or a fast reduction in the gap as points gained when the south sliders were in europe.

13 Jan 2021 21:38:21
No games were played because all spfl clubs were on a week break. Do yous think clubs would just allow our issues to affect their plans, would you have been happy for Celtic to change our plans to suit another club that had a fixture back log.

Jonbhoy71 yes their two players got seven match bans two players who who were just squad players who rarely featured. Both ourselves and Aberdeen were fined £30 thousand and slaughtered in Holyrood yet sevco got praised. I agree with LAW regarding the trip to Dubai such a fuss being made regarding it with everybody and their granny having something to say Swinney, Sturgeon, McLeish, Boyd, McCoist Walker, and now some reporter in the record getting her say on it. On Monday All leagues below the championship were cancelled in Scotland, yet on Tuesday Brora Rangers embarked on a 560 mile round trip to play Tranent in the cup why was it allowed to take place if there is such a concern with teams at that level. Anything regarding Celtic is like a Duracell battery it goes on and on. Sturgeon after months of preaching the importance of wearing a mask is pictured talking to a group without hers she apologises and that’s the end of it. Now that Lawwell has apologised will that be the end of it not a hope in hell, it will carry on because it won’t be enough for some. Since Monday there have been 5000 confirmed cases in Scotland, where did they all contract it from not from Celtic going to Dubai, it’s those who blatantly flaunt the rules who are responsible and should be named and shamed. I’m as disappointed as everyone else the way this season has gone and as a punter I would bet if Celtic were on sevcos tails with three games in hand there wouldn’t be a problem with going to Dubai, too many fans are caught up in this ten in a row. To JFP1888 if wee nic has responsibility with the bigger picture why did she allow the above match I mentioned to go ahead with commenting on it.

13 Jan 2021 22:10:17
Jfp av been called a lot of things but never a unionist in fact Ian quite the opposite. ok sturgeon seems to gavecselectuvevmemiry loss when the rules are breached and as I've said it's a C.V. so why was European and international football not cancelled.

13 Jan 2021 22:19:50
I take it your joking?
Our biggest problem seems to be that the club or our fans still don’t get it.
It’s everybody else’s fault, how come they were badly behaved and only got this punishment but we got this etc etc.
Other teams have had points docked but because Sevcos players who didn’t mix with anybody else immediately after braking rules and got 7 game bans each and we had to isolate let’s blame everyone else.
If you don’t something when something needs to change we will have the same issues.
Board not going anywhere soon so it’s time to start planning for next season.
Get dead wood out the door, step up the search for new manager yesterday and get our recruitment department to start identifying proper realistic improvements to the squad.
3-4 quality players and we will be a force again!

13 Jan 2021 22:30:15
End of the day it shouldn't be tit for tat. We are in this mess because of Lennon and his tactics, insisting on playing players that should not be anywhere near team. That's why we are trailing in league and 10iar has gone.

13 Jan 2021 22:45:24
Why were we the only premier League club that needed to go to Dubai, in the middle of an ongoing deadly C.V., is it because we have more money than the other clubs?, and we like to flash the cash, is it because our players needed a bonding session more than other clubs players?, and if they did, there must have been some out door pursuits, they could have done in this country, mixed in with some football training, and permission could have been obtained from Wee Nicola, (and I am not a unionist, and she doesn't believe in independence ) .

13 Jan 2021 23:34:11
Take the green tinted glasses off and get the "everyone is against us " out your head.
The league's being suspended has NOTHING to do with the Scottish Government as it was the SPL and SFA that decided to postpone the games as noted in there official announcement, it's got to do with the part-time player not being able to stay in the "football bubble" but I guess that's the governments fault as well.

It was also the SFA that let the Brora game to go ahead, maybe it was because they had already travelled.
What does it matter if there players are 1st, squad or junior players, they were still punished, and if you think that what they did compared to our player and the Aberdeen 8 are the same then you are deluded.
Oh and to mention the FM and the photo is ridiculous, She was at a private funeral, was sitting drinking tea and stood up and turned around and someone on the staff at the event was waiting with a camera.
You are also totally missing the point regarding the Dubai trip, who on here mentioned anything in regards to the C.V. spike being Celtics fault? the point is that when "normal people" aren't allowed to travel more than 5 miles from there home, who in inside Parkhead thought it was a good idea to feck aff half way around the world, a group of 49 people on a chartered private plane to a 5 star hotel all paid for by the fan for 4 days training?
Don't we have a state of the art training facility that had millions spent on it?
We were also told that it was a hard training but there are taking injured players amongst the group, why wasn't 1 trainer and Jullian left at home?
This trip is a slap in the face to the fans.

The reason we went to Dubai is the same reason we have done so in the other recent years. let's remember how well the Dubai training camp has worked for our team in recent years, as they have came back, fired up and ended the season strongly.

Yes with hindsight we may have shot ourselves in the foot with Julien getting CV and thus causing the team to self isolate.

However, there was probably more chance of him catching it in Scotland as the R number in Scotland is higher than in Dubai.

In answer to the Rangers players getting 7 match bans, yes this was suitable punishment. However, there was no mention of the other Rangers players who attended the party in the media or by the Scottish Government and who should have also got banned. It was also strange that 2 Rangers players had C.V. but miraculously, none of them came into contact with any of the other players or staff.

jfp im a socialist a snp voter and have been all my life and will always vote for independence but we are moving in dangerous waters when our first minister can't be questioned and whoever doesn't agree with her doesn't have to be a unionist.
