CELTIC FANS have hit out at the Evening Times for a ridiculous headline with Celtic’s name attached to it.
Paddy Crerand, 78, was arrested for the very serious offence drink driving in MANCHESTER. He used to play for Celtic 55 years ago, but is mainly known for his exploits at Manchester United as a player and coach with the Old Trafford during his time down south.
The paper felt compelled to attach Celtic’s name to the article, branding Paddy a ‘Former Celtic Player’ in the headline. Top quality stuff from the ET.
This one really is taking it toooooo far. Evening Times online headline – "Former Celtic player charged with drink-driving…". The player in question left Celtic in 1962 (thats nineteen sixty two!!!!). Absolutely desperate. 55 years since he left the Club!!

Crass journalism in the extreme.
A player who left Celtic over 50 years ago and played over 3 times as many games for Man Utd, is sensationalised as a former Celtic player. And you wonder why your circulation figures are in free fall. Sad?
