There’s notable opposition from Celtic fans participating in a tournament on the other side of the world alongside their Glasgow rivals.
We’ve been following the story since news broke on Tuesday and it’s been fast-moving. There was always likely to be some sort of reference made about this tournament tonight as a lot of fans feel the “Were Not Half Of Anything” club statement had a price on it.

It was peculiar the way this was announced by Celtic who didn’t mention opponents or the venue in their press release.
We then got word from the Australian clubs involved about who was participating. Celtic, Sydney FC, Rangers, WS Wanderers.
The A-League and Celtic have billed this as the AngeBall World Tour and treating Celtic as the biggest draw for the tourny. People in Australia will not quite understand the level of pettiness things can get back in Glasgow. Given Ange is Australian, and the former boss of Australia, and also their best ever football manager – of course, he and the club he manages would take centre stage.
