If you’re wondering why the game was delayed due to a flood of tennis balls being thrown into the park by Celtic supporters – wonder no longer.
It’s another protest and response to the impending hire of police chief Bernard Higgins.
Fans or Higgins? The ball's in your court Nicholson' pic.twitter.com/IL7L85o6tL— Jeanette Findlay (@JeanFind) November 7, 2021
Celtic fans unveiled a banner against Livingston voicing their displeasure at the potential appointment and have promised to continue their protests until the club confirm Higgins will not be employed.
It’s been given a mixed response by fans who see a disruption to the game itself as embarrassing.
I’m sure the debate will rage on whether it was the right thing to do or or not.
Celtic fans are passionate about the club not employing Higgins who was a pivotal part of the now scrapped offensive behaviour act.
It’s a good cause but the groups involved must keep on the right side of popular opinion when they do protest. Have they done that here?
