CELTIC FANS and some ex-players have been tweeting their outrage after the Daily Record’s insensitive headline attached to a story about the late Liam Miller.
The paper thought it was appropriate to run a story with this headline this morning after the tragic death of former Celtic player Liam Miller and for some, they’ve just had enough.
Celtic fans have urged their fellow supporters to send a message to the paper by blocking their feeds on social media.

Just my opinion but very poor effort from the daily record headline on Liam’s passing.
Infact it’s terrible take it offline

Time for Celtic Football Club to ban the Daily Record from Celtic Park, a gutter rag that has plumbed the depths today again in connection with a tragic event. Enough.

We can send a message to the media if we want to. I have blocked the Daily Record. I would encourage every decent football fan to do the same. Screenshot the block and tweet it. #BlockTheDailyRecord pic.twitter.com/yRGUgWnP7N

The Record have since taken the story down and apologised after the backlash.
We have removed a headline on our online coverage of the death of Liam Miller. It was insensitive and we unreservedly apologise for any offence caused.

We would never try and influence anyone’s reading habits, but make up your own mind on this latest debacle.
