As we reported on last night, Celtic are refusing to be the club pre-selected to head to Murrayfield for their semi-final, should the SPFL manage to secure the venue.

Celtic have formally written to the SPFL outlining the reasons why this decision should not be a foregone conclusion and the only fair way to make the decision is by random draw.

It is rather bizarre that Celtic vs Hearts would be the one pre-selected in the first place. The thinking behind it as bad as the double booked venue plan the SPFL came up with in the first place.

The SPFL have become even more of a joke as they try to sort out a mess of their own doing.

Their inept attempt to lead and show authority has been abysmal.

The rushed decision to play two semi-finals on the same day at the same venue was never viable, and the fact they punted this idea for as long as they did shows how deluded they are.

There’s no reason now why the SPFL can’t accept Celtic’s request and have a fair draw to see who plays in Edinburgh.

The sub-story here, is after being messed around by the SFA are the Murrayfield bosses feeling charitable?

They know they have the SPFL by the proverbials and could ask for a higher price to host the event leaving another SPFL plan in tatters.

What a mess.

  1. I can understand the city of Edinburgh not wanting to be overrun by marauding Huns but Celtic shouldn’t be inconvenienced to accommodate them or the wee Huns who’d be quite happy to play at Murrayfield. Sorry Embra; nobody welcomes “rangers” and their followers but we’ve all got to take a wee shot in the name of fairness. If Hearts and others had demanded REAL justice following the last Ibrox club’s years and years of blatant cheating maybe we wouldn’t be having this discussion. GIRUY Budge. You deserve all you get!

  2. There is no guarantee as yet that the SRU have or will agree to Murrayfield being used. It just boggles the mind what incompetence is on display at the spfl. The only outcome is that Doncaster walks and that Celtic get justice. Add to the fact that yesterday a top cop from South Yorkshire was appointed to look at all matters relating tp football policing when police Scotland said there was nothing to see! Makes you wonder uist what these people are being paid to do! And finally as if all the semi final nonsense wasn’t enough there is a movie getting made in Glasgow city centre on the 24-28th with various streets being closed off…..all very joined up thinking! Just hope the star isn’t relying on getting a train or a ticket to Hampden!

  3. CELTIC FANS LETS BOYCOTT THIS CUP GAME AND HOPE CELTIC HAVE THE BOTTLE NOT TO TAKE ANY TICKETS FROM THEY CORR B…… SPFL AND SFA SCUM.
