Unlike elsewhere, Celtic’s statement yesterday contained no promises or predictions on when fans will be able to attend games in Scotland. The “fans attending by late August” brigade might be right, but no one knows yet. That being the case, better to under-promise.
After their “thanks for your pure brilliant support” (not a literal quote) message, they reiterated an earlier comment, “it is our firm intention to give additional value to our season ticket holders for this and coming seasons”. What that looks like will be determined by how many games we miss. What is appropriate for two games would be inappropriate if you missed two months.
When we get back will ultimately be determined by the politicians. Football is an outdoor activity, where the science suggests the disease is less contagious, but science and political decisions have not always been in step, just look at what politicians did to care homes, so we can expect continuing randomness.
I loved the “aim… to dominate Scottish football” line. Winning is nice but dominating has always been my thing. Good to see we are all on the same page with that one.
