I thought it was great - highly exciting. I wonder what the defeated and dejected McCoist, said to the jubilant and buoyant Lennon ? Is our Ally a sectarian racist ? Lennon looked happy enough when he approached the disgruntled Glasgow Rangers (chief in waiting ) Lets face it, the gers have a disciplinary problem, as much as their fans - who sing those hate songs.

I agree...Lennon offered his hand.....I'm sure Ally whispered more than "SWEET NOTHINGS" in Lennons ear... huh.gif

I was having a look around the open viewing Rangers and celtic forums.

Celtic supporter on rangers fans, they're not normal, they hate us more than supporting their team.

Rangers supporter on celtic fans, they're not normal, thay hate us more than supporting their team.

I think both sides are being played, like a violin. Who is the conductor?

On a more serious note, word reaches me that Vicious celtic fans sent a
4-4-2 formation to Walter Smith in the post.

weeshuggie,can you tell us what was supposedly lipread?

A youtube clip was put up with Neil Lennon caught by quite a few hundred, by all accounts, rangers fans who had a deaf sister who could lip read and in the video they claimed Neil Lennon had called Diouf a F'''''g N''''r. They set up a cause and asked for everyone to phone the police and make allegations about Lennon. The police confirmed over two hundred complaints.

The News of the World went further and actually hired a recognised professional lip reader. Neil Lennon confirmed he had called Diouf a F'''''g D''k, the recognised professional confirmed that Neil Lennon had stated what he said he had spoken. How is it possible that so many Rangers supporters can sit back knowing their deaf sisters are being denied proper lip reading education. And further more how come so many rangers supporters have deaf sisters, I said how come so many rangers supporters have deaf sisters biggrin.gif

Diouf has stated Lennon is no racist and did not make any racist comment. You really must question the motives of so many rangers fans resorting to something so spiteful and vindictive.

Pftt.

Load of auld tripe and trotters an as usual blown oot of aw proportion. Jist look with goes on in Inglish fitbaw¬ Kissing, hugging, dry humpin. Aye, it's a queer game awricht ¬¬

No me.. ah support a real game... rugby. It's no been ruined, yit.

This latest auld firm lovers spat has more entertainment value than those twa showers of over paid fairies trying to kick a baw aroond the park.

Keech stirring drama queens and politicians need to keep thier nebs oot of sport and dea wit the tax payer wants them to dea, go hing thumselves:D

A £500,000 funding package to tackle sectarianism in Scotland has been announced following a summit into Old Firm-related disorder.

It will be shared between organisations Sense over Sectarianism, Nil by Mouth and Show Racism the Red Card.

Police requested the summit after describing scenes at last weeks Celtic versus Rangers game as "shameful".

The game saw three red cards, several touch-line and tunnel confrontations and 34 arrests inside Celtic Park.

Representatives from both clubs, the Scottish Football Association (SFA) and Strathclyde Police attended the meeting in Edinburgh on Tuesday.

Ask yourselves a few questions. Is this just about football? No. It is also about policing and public order.

Very definitely within the realm of public policy. That is, politics.


Strathclyde Police confirmed on Thursday that it had asked for the summit following the previous night's match, which Celtic won 1-0.

A statement from the force said: "There can be no doubt that the levels of drunken violence that have blighted our communities and the number of people who have been arrested due to their sectarian behaviour is simply unacceptable.

"Something has to be done."

Ah agree, Hubert. Despite some posters fond memories of the mayhem at the game forty years ago, and the assertion that "it's always been that way" and the "passion" of the players and aw the other rhubarb, uncalled for violence in "sport" has wider implications than jist the odd player gettin duffed up oan the pitch. Why should fitba players be exempt frae the laws that govern everybody else?

So the Chief Constable House says that any player committing an offence on the field will find themselves in trouble with the police, how unusual.

Wonder if Duncan Ferguson would anything to say about that rolleyes.gif

Why should football clubs have to solve problems in society?

The furore after the last old firm game masks the truth that politicians have failed for years to eliminate the root causes in society. i.e. unemployment, poor housing, the drink till I am wasted culture.

One post stated that the problem was caused by not allowing a catholic on the throne. Last time I looked this was the 21st century - why is anybody on the throne? Why is there still a monarchy?

Let's be honest the government took action, they held a meeting, case closed for another few years until the next big rammy.

Close grounds, stop drinking, aye that'll be coco. Celtic and Rangers just accept losing a couple of million quid and every pub in the vicinity saying, oh aye shut us doon for the night we don't want to take money of football supporters. See they wee pink elephants in the sky, mair chance of one of them landing on yer heid than any of the other nonsense happening.

The response from concerned publicans regarding a potential alcohol ban:

Billy Gold, of the Rangers-leaning Hielan Jessie in the East End, said:
QUOTE
“I would be very concerned if this idea gained credence, because we have never had any trouble and it would punish our customers for the faults of some other pubs.

We manage our pub perfectly well by taking on extra staff, by sound management, and by ensuring the pub isn’t totally packed – and we have Celtic-supporting customers on match days as well as Rangers fans.”

Tam Carberry, of Celtic-leaning Bairds Bar, near the Celtic ground, said:
QUOTE
“It would destroy our pub if this went ahead. We had not a single complaint during the last two match days, and totally rely on match days for our business – we don’t see a lot of custom Monday to Friday.

Most of the trouble comes from people drinking supermarket carry-outs – and if we see anyone trying to bounce in full of drink they’ve bought elsewhere we simply turn them away.”

Caroline Wright, of Jinty McGuinty’s Irish-themed bar in the West End, said:
QUOTE
“We don’t show matches, we don’t allow football colours, and we certainly don’t tolerate loutish behaviour.

But if you close the bars near the grounds you’ll simply get a dispersal of a local problem to other parts of the city.”

The Tories divide and rule and the gutless pseudo socialists never ever tackle this discrimination; what is in the European Union, against law and custom, is law in England and in her regional empire Scotland, Six Counties of Ireland and Wales. NO CATHOLICS!!! on the throne, the prime minister and I believe the Lord Privy seal. I only return to the country of my birth on Google Maps. I was and still am a second class citizen there. Yes Norman 21st century indeed.
