Today, the Green Brigade has alleged that despite being barred from attending both home and away matches for an unspecified period, the club continues to withdraw direct debit payments from the fans’ accounts.

The ultra group is currently prohibited from claiming their usual ticket allocations for games, both domestically and internationally, and has also been denied entry to Celtic Park. The club attributes this suspension to a series of infringements by the group’s members, citing concerns over safety and conduct.

However, the Green Brigade contests these accusations, asserting that their ban is a direct result of their political expressions, specifically their support for Palestine. The situation raises concerns about the fairness of charging supporters for matches they are forbidden to attend, a matter which the club needs to address. A consensus among the wider supporter base suggests a desire for dialogue between the Green Brigade and the club to resolve these issues promptly.

As Celtic prepares to face Atl├ętico Madrid in Spain on Tuesday, the Green Brigade will not receive any ticket allocation. Similarly, there is no indication that they will be permitted in the stands for the upcoming weekend match against Aberdeen.
