Containing consequences


It still stings, but we need to park the pain of defeat and get back on the horse tomorrow.  Reversals can become infectious, they can drive confidence into a spiral. For my money, this phenomenon in part formed Brendan’s reaction after the game on Wednesday. He was relatively upbeat, containing the consequences by saying whatever positives were available.

Kilmarnock are the only domestic opponents to beat Celtic this season, so we have are reasons to be cautious.

Our motivation should be clear, win, and put seven points between us and St Mirren, with the Paisley club playing Newco on Sunday. Let’s hope our Glasgow rivals can do is a favour and peg Saints back.

  12. Life sentence for sectarian killing of football fan



    The Scotsman 15/03/1996


    A MAN was jailed for life yesterday after being found guilty of the murder of a schoolboy Celtic fan.



    Jason Campbell, 23, whose father and uncle were Protestant terrorist paramilitaries, stabbed 16-year-old Mark Scott outside a pub at Glasgow’s Bridgeton Cross on 7 October last year.



    Iain Bonomy, QC, prosecuting, revealed to the jury that Campbell had a previous conviction for carrying a knife.



    The defence QC, Donald Findlay, suggested that Campbell, of Heron Street, Bridgeton, had originally intended just to slash his victim.



    Campbell denied murder and lodged a special defence of alibi, claiming he was at home with his relatives at the time of the killing.



    During the trial the court heard how minutes before he died, Mark, a Glasgow Academy pupil and the son of a corporate lawyer, had been watching Celtic’s 2-1 win over Partick Thistle with two friends at nearby Celtic Park.



    As the three youngsters – one the son of James Friel, the procurator-fiscal at Paisley -walked along London Road towards Bridgeton Cross they had to pass through a gauntlet of hate from Rangers fans outside the pub.



    The attack, in broad daylight, was witnessed by other fans, women out shopping with their children and people in cars and buses.



    After the killing, Campbell sprinted to his home just a few hundred yards away where the family was having a party for his nephew’s 12th birthday.



    He quickly showered and changed, then left, travelling later that night to stay with friends in Greenock.



    During the first hours after the incident police received at least 50 telephone calls naming Campbell as the killer.



    The next day Campbell gave himself up to police with his lawyer Massimo Franchi.



    He was picked out by various witnesses as the young man in a pink shirt and denims they saw running from the scene.



    One witness identified Campbell as the killer at a parade and in the dock. Another couple saw him with a knife before the murder.

  13. The Murder of Mark Scott, 7th October, 1995



    Mark Scott was the victim of an unprovoked attack as he walked through Bridgeton Cross whilst returning from the Celtic – Partick Thistle game in 1995. He died on the street and his murder became the main impetus for the establishment of the charity ‘Nil by Mouth’.



    To all his family and those connected to the young man, our sincere sympathies and condolences.



    You’ll never walk alone.




  14. And life, should be life. Far too soft on these cretins. What the hell , society has got to stop this crap, senseless stabbing.


    Anyone caught carrying a knife, min 10 years, no fucking around
