Former Celtic striker Tony Watt has backed the Green Brigade and their banner against the Tories and Rod Stewart.
There has been a backlash from both sides of the support on this one with many claiming the banner was embarrassing while others have backed the sentiment of the message.
Tam McManus had the cheek to call the green Brigade attention seeking as he sits on Twitter trying to garner attention off the groups back.
Tony Watt stepped in after McManus criticised the fan group for their stance, which basically said sit down and watch the football.

We are disheartened tonight with so many personally attacking the Green Brigade. Given their work with food banks, refugees and other charities – the group should be allowed to express their opinion on the political party that has brought the need for all these types of charitable work.
It was weeks ago Rod had a go at the Green Brigade over pyro and with the singer quite happy to cash in on republicanism during his gigs while doffing his cap and tugging his forelock – he’s fair game.
