Ian Bankier was asked by a shareholder at the AGM if he thought Celtic were treated differently by the SFA during the lockdown era of football.
When asked what could have been done about it, Bankier flippantly asked if the club should have taken on the government which led to many in the room shouting ‘yes’. One shareholder chanted ‘Wee Fergus [Fergus McCann] took them on.
Celtic seemed to get harshly treated at every turn during lockdown football. Even though the January trip to Dubai was ill-advised before they went out, they still got the green light and made sure they stuck to the protocols when they were out there with regards to rooms and travel.
When a positive case was found, the government moved the goal posts resulting in massive call-offs to our team for two fixtures.
It’s clear to see by Bankier’s demeanour that the backbone in the board room isn’t there.
