Gers fans enjoyed a win at Celtic Park on Sunday but not before they utterly embarrassed themselves by going out their way not to take part in a minute applause for Duncan MacKay.
The former Celtic star passed away at the age of 82 on Boxing Day and the club put out the word that they would have a minutes applause for Duncan to pay their respects to someone who had given a lot for the jersey.
While Celtic fans clapped – this writer watched on as the few Gers fans in the stadium stood had their arms staunchly folded with only a handful applauding in the away end – refusing to take part. For what reason?
It’s embarrassing – especially after the last year with respects paid by both sides when it came to Billy McNeill’s passing and when Fernando Ricksen finally succumbed to his horrible disease.
Rivalry should only go so far, but the morons in the crowd made sure they were showing no respect. Considering the behaviour of some of their fans after the match, we’re not at all surprised.
