THE SPFL have made an absolute joke of the semi-final set up from start to finish.
From going against police advice and trying to stage both games at Hamden on the same day to pushing Celtic out to Murrayfield without any sort of real explanation – it’s amateur hour from Neil Doncaster again.
Celtic sent out a strongly worded statement last night which took aim at the SPFL for ignoring the club’s ‘modest request’ to hold a draw to see which game ended up where.
Instead they forged ahead with plans to send Celtic and Hearts to Murrayfield – a stadium which Hearts are very familiar and will have the upper hand on the day.
Brendan Rodgers has come out and said he’s very disappointed with the decision. You would be too as a manager if you had a 100% record at Hampden and you got unceremoniously punted to Murrayfield without any semblance of an explanation.
Some fans have had enough and they have voiced their opinion on the SPFL’s actions – saying that if the SPFL aren’t willing to be fair then why should Celtic bother taking their allocation.
Just a thought should Celtic tell spfl to stick ticket allocation that way it hurts all and will look pretty crap in 1/4 full murrayfield not normally in favour of boycott as we support the team but need to DO something

Got to say the SPFL league cup has been made to look like an absolute amateur competition on the back of the fixture chaos.
Half want celtic fc/celtic fans to boycott it, half want us to turn the diets over

Ohh fur fuck sake, here we go.
Celtic fans want to boycott the betfred semi at Murrayfield.
For 35 years of watching Celtic, the only time the fans boycotted anything was Celtic when we where shite.
Who yous trying to kid.
