CHRIS SUTTON has slammed any suggestion that the banners at Celtic Park last month against Lazio were in any way an excuse for two Celtic fans being stabbed in Rome on Wednesday night.
The former Celtic striker is in Italy ahead of the tie with BT Sports covering the game.
The word spread that Lazio ultras had managed to stab two Celtic fans and the papers who have spent a fortnight creating a blame game scenario against Celtic fans sensationalised the news.
A Celtic fan on the ground gave his first hand account of what had gone on Wednesday night and it was hardly how the tabloids were framing it.
Chris Sutton has made it clear regardless of any banner at Celtic Park that anyone being stabbed going to follow their team is unacceptable in ANY circumstances.
It’s crazy this point has to be made in the first place but that’s where we’re at.=
Lots of stuff being said about the banners displayed by a section of Celtic fans the other week and whether they were justified or not. The bottom line is no football fan deserves to be stabbed going to watch their team play…
