For most of us, we support Celtic from a young age and follow the team year after year.

Throughout the highs and lows, we experience it all and here are just TEN things you’re likely to identify with/know/experience if you’re a Celtic fan.


  1. You ALWAYS look at the linesman/Ref immediately after Celtic score an important goal because you’re used to ‘honest mistakes.’

2. You don’t fancy our chances against Rosenborg in a qualifier but EXPECT us to beat Bayern Munich by at least two clear goals in the group stage.

3. You’re used to being lumped in with sectarianism when you’ve never sung an anti-religious song in your life.

4. If you wear your Hoops abroad you’re getting at least one comment from a foreign bar/cafe owner saying “mon the hoops” or something to that effect.

5. On that same holiday, you’ll see a wee growler at the poolside with a union jack towel.

6. That moment when the music fades out and a full Celtic Park sings You’ll Never Walk Alone makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

7. You’re polite as f**k when you have Celtic colours on because you’re representing the club and our supporters.

8. In a game of football down the park, you’ve tried to emulate wee Jimmy Johnstone or Henrik Larsson at some point in your life.

9.Doesn’t matter what age you are, you can rhyme off the Lisbon Lion team that won the European Cup.

10. You chant SEBO when someone makes a complete a*** of themselves trying to shoot.

Can you name more things you’d only know being a Celtic fan?

  1. Brilliant!

    A couple things to add:-

    1. Get our hopes up EVERY transfer window of imminent quality signings.
    2. Have a severe mistrust of virtually all aspects of the media in Scotland whether it be newspapers or TV.
    3. Almost similar to number 3 above – we couldn’t give the slightest shit what the background of our players is. If someone has previously played for the huns they will be welcomed heartily over to the good guys after seeing the light (Kenny Miller doesn’t count any more).
    4. (For a fair percentage) Tut-tut at the Green Brigade for their ‘chants’ and banners but secretly really miss them when they ain’t there!
    5. ALWAYS look on the bright side of life. Those who don’t, you know who you are. Cheer up ya miserable bassas!

  2. I have always had a suspicious doubt about anyone who follows the dark side. Even people I class as friends have an element of me thinking how can anyone support them.

    I love being abroad and wearing the colours. It’s always well received and you do feel like an ambassador.

  3. SO SO TRUE! CELTIC TRULY ARE” A CLUB LIKE NO OTHER” LOVED AND RESPECTED THE WORLD OVER!! PROBABLY THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT CLUB EVER FOUNDED!! WE LOVE THE CLUB “WE ARE CELTIC AND CELTIC ARE US””HAIL HAIL FELLOW TIMS DOUBLE TREBLE ON THE WAY IN BRENDAN WE TRUST!!
