Newco’s narcotic-type dependency on ever-more-creative PR was illustrated on BBC Radio Scotland last night by Michael Stewart, who highlighted ludicrously false attempted murder stories fed to the newspapers, followed by rushed and selectively edited TV interviews when the truth became apparent.
Meanwhile, every other football club in Scotland goes about their business, where PR prepare information ahead of games, like any normal entity.
On this occasion, two Celtic season ticket holders (quite rightly) reported to the police an incident, observed only by a handful of Celtic fans, by another fan at last month’s defeat.
Celtic fans’ abhorrence of intolerance is commendable, we hold ourselves to a higher standard. The club cannot cut across this with denials or deflections. Others have exploited that police report shamelessly, but that is Gutter Life.
