A Celtic shareholder has brought up an increase in Irish rebel songs being sung at Celtic Park and used the Beautiful Sunday chant as an example of something which he believes to be dragging the Celtic support down.
“Not putting all blame on GB but drums and megaphones bring the beat for these unsavoury songs.
“It’s getting worse now and I want the board to open a dialogue.”
Peter Lawwell thanked the shareholder for his question and commented it was a very brave question to ask.
The CEO said in no uncertain terms that it gives Celtic’s ‘enemies’ the opportunity to pile us in with the rest when we are anything but.
“It’s wrong for the club and gives enemies chance to categorise us like everyone else. But we’re not like every one else.” Lawwell Said.
There has always been many Celtic fans pro and against rebel songs being sung on match day.
The notion that these are sectarian however are so far wide of the mark. Whether you agree with them or not, to wrongly categorise them as discriminating against any religion is daft at best.
They have nothing to do with the football on the pitch but some argue they have a lot to do with what Celtic stands for and it really is down to personal opinion for many.
The Beautiful Sunday chant is juvenile at best.
