Several news outlets are running with our name attached to a prediction that we will join one other club in the English football structure within five years. This prediction is little more than background noise and is not indicative of any initiative or plan. A Scottish club cannot ‘buy’ an English club, relocated them and work their way through the leagues without the prior permission of both the Scottish and English FAs.
The notion of clubs buying clubs is not worthy of your attention and you should none of this ‘information’ should be used to support share valuations.
Celtic’s future is inextricably linked to the futures of Scotland’s other senior clubs, all of whom need to plan for their futures. Background noise like this only makes creating the environment necessary to fulfil those plans more difficult.
The Wayside Club in Glasgow has been serving the homeless and destitute for 80 years. It survives exclusively by charitable donations and is the only homeless resource in Glasgow which is open 365 days a year, offering food, non-alcoholic drink, showers, a hair-cut, shaving facility, first aid and a friendly face to those living on the very brink of existence. For its patrons, it is an oasis of normality in a harsh and cold world.
To raise funds they are having an 80th Anniversary Gala Dinner at the Hilton in Glasgow on Saturday, 27th April. Individual tickets are available for £50 each, with tables of 10 also available. If you would like to attend email me, firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll put you in touch with inspirational volunteer, Tom Boyd senior.
If you can’t make it along to the night you can support the Wayside Club by donation at their VirginMoneyGiving page.
