CELTIC have released a statement this evening condemning any sort of sectarian chanting directed at Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes at Hampden on Sunday. However, the club have hit back at being the only club under ‘investigation’ by police after events on Sunday and prior games.
The club are clearly talking about the shameless and disgusting ‘Paedo’ chants directed at Celtic players and fans before, during and after the semi-final yesterday. They also go one further and say the chants we have received by a number of supporters should be up for investigation.
Celtic are absolutely correct in telling fans any form of sectarian chanting is unacceptable but they can’t idly sit by and watch Celtic bare the brunt of this because Derek McInnes lost the plot yesterday.
Calling anyone an ‘Orange B******’ should be confined to history and we should move on from such slurs.
The growing chants towards Celtic and fans have not been highlighted and in recent seasons we’ve had a whole section of Hampden chant at fans to ‘go home’ with very little attention being given to it.
