The atmosphere at Celtic Park has come under scrutiny following the Green Brigade lockout, with former Hibernian striker Tam McManus describing the ambience as ‘crap’ during Celtic’s recent 4-1 victory over Hibs.
The Green Brigade has been banned from both home and away matches since November due to “repeated incidents of unacceptable conduct”, and there is no sign when their ban will be lifted.
About 250 supporters are currently locked out of Parkhead.
The impact of the Green Brigade’s absence was notably felt in the stands, with McManus pointing out the stark contrast in the atmosphere. Despite Celtic’s impressive performance on the field, maintaining their lead in the league, the usual vibrant and noisy support from the terraces was significantly muted.
Taking to X, formally Twitter, the PLZ pundit said:
“Atmosphere at Celtic Park crap only fans i could hear were small band of Hibs fans in corner.”
And it isn’t just McManus of that opinion, many fans who were at the game on Wednesday night are also saying the same.
BHOYS Celtic, who could’ve helped lift the atmosphere, are showing solidarity with the Green Brigade, and are not showing up to matches, leaving their section empty.
