It wasn’t just the team who made the headlines on Saturday but with the eyes firmly on Hampden – Celtic fans made sure they raised awareness and showed support for the people of Palestine.

We have all seen the harrowing images and the plight of the Palestine people and as a support, it’s great to see fans raise awareness.

Not only that but Celtic fans have just raised funds for Palestine hospitals that are in desperate need of equipment and medicine.

The news story of the Hampden support has reached far and wide with many pro Palestinian media outlets covering the Celtic fans.

Here is just one of the accounts explaining to their readers what the Celtic fans are doing.

  1. I think Celtic should keep out of the politics of what is going on with the Palestinians, its a bit double standards when we have past and present players who are Israeli how do you think they must feel when they see how the club support the people who are posing a threat to their homeland. Not all supporters are Hama’s /Palestinian supporters let’s keep our mind on what’s going on ,on the pitch. I wrongly thought Celtic was a team for everyone ,doesn’t seem like that to me

    • Celtic is a team for every one. Individuals from Israel as any individual from any country is respected and should always be respected. unless that individual, like Polo Dicanio, shows himself/herself to be a total arse of a human being. Football , as music, as all other form of arts, is an ideal platform, and should be used to highlights the wrong that one nation does against a nation. this is not about individual, Like many I love Bitton, like many I admire and respect great ambassadors of their sport, and other form of arts. But if you tell me to stop supporting and promoting what I believe should be morally right, then i will say that you are wrong. without public platform protests, we would never have had, south Africa Aprtheid conquered. Keep flying the Palestine Flag guys, you are beacons in a fragile world that wishes to see you silenced.

  2. Brilliant by the Celtic fans.
    Well done bhoys and ghirls
    This is an absolute shame what Israel is doing to the palistinian people
    Once again, well done!
    Hail Hail

  3. We have every right to protest Paul against a regime that is inflicting atrocities on a people who they stole their country from. The Palestinian people were moved by Britain and USA T O pander to a rich jewish minority in both countries that had wealth and massive political influence. This has resulted in Hamas and PLO having to use all and any means against the Israeli nazi murderous interlopers. I for 1 am proud we at Celtic support Palestine.

  4. I would be disappointed if the Celtic fans did not offer support to the oppressed Palestinians. To say that we should not involve politics in sport is so wrong. It is one of the main ways of bringing the worlds attention to the atrocities that are being carried out today in the middle east and conveniently and deliberately ignored by the major powers in the world. It’s not the first time that our club has been involved in bringing politics into sport. Does the European Cup in 1968 ring a bell. It was our club who refused to play a communist bloc team thus having the withdrawal of communist bloc teams from the cup and the draw made again. I don’t see any difference in protesting against Fascism as protesting against communism. Well done Celtic fans.

  5. Celtic was founded as a charitable and supportive club to help people, I am proud to be a Celtic supporter and proud of the support we have shown, wether it’s on a political scale or not shouldn’t matter. It’s what makes our club special.

  7. I’ve no problem with supporting whatever cause one wants to support but using our great Football Club and our stadium (or Hampden) is, in my opinion, wrong. We fly the flag of Ireland because that is our roots. Using Celtic Football Club to promote the Palestinian cause is a misuse of our team and stadium. Feel free to support the Palestinian cause but don’t use Celtic to promote it simply because it will reach a broader audience.

  8. Totally agree with you Steve. What the fuck has Hamas and the Palestinian problem got to do with Celtic Football Club.
