Scottish football as it should be

614

Leigh Griffiths has had plenty of uncomplimentary discourse written about him this season, most of it deserved, so it should be recorded that he was the first Hibs player to return applause in the direction of Celtic fans yesterday, closely followed by his team-mates.

This is the way football should be. For too long our game has been poisoned by the unique kind of rivalry you got in Scotland. More of the same, please.

You can contribute to the 1254125 1254125 call to ensure Celtic retain our affinity with our founding cause by buying a raffle ticket for a fabulous framed Celtic top, signed by the equally-fabulous Seville squad.  Do it today.

Willie Wallace had a great time signing copies of his Heart of a Lion at Waterstons in East Kilbride and Falkirk this afternoon. East Kilbride was busier but the photos of stock Falkirk (below) before and after tells you all about his day. I hear our most recent treble winning captain came alone for a book at East Kilbride.

We’re at Waterstones, Stirling, on Thursday evening for late night shopping, will confirm times tomorrow. If you can’t make it along you can still order your signed copy below.

  1. NatKnow - "We welcome the paper-chase..." on

    Good article Paul – too often football is used as an excuse for bad behaviour.

  2. joe_joe_john_bobby_teddy on

    Had the great privilege to chat to our manager and skipper yesterday, 2 absolute gentlemen

  3. Evening Natknow, agree with your sentiment there, just because you are at a game you shouldn’t use that as an excuse to behave badly.

     

     

    Paul67, the Hibs players applauded the Celtic supporters in response to the Celtic supporters applauding them, good stuff all round.

  4. I have never known the Celtic support to applaud the support of an opponent the way they did the Hibs support yesterday .

     

     

    It have not read or heard of it being mentioned in any media outlet.

     

     

    Well done to both sets of fans .

     

     

    It truly was a friendly fans final.

  6. Congratulations Doc.

     

     

    Reckon I might have beat u to the podium but cannae stop my hands shaking after the weekends festivities!!

  7. Just back home from meeting Willie Wallace at Waterstones in Falkirk. What an absolute pleasure to meet one of my heroes. Looking forward to spending more time in his company at Aberdour.

     

    Pleasure to also meet Winning Captains. Well done the CQN team on the book publishing venture.

    Good read and season’s breakdown Gordon, I particularly liked this paragraph :

     

     

    “For a team ranked 63rd in Europe to come through two qualifying rounds and a tough group to make the last sixteen was a tremendous achievement. Neil Lennon and his players should be proud of their efforts and the achievements of the season.”

  9. How did Ah Dae That?

     

     

    Dunno.

  10. Was a great atmosphere yesterday and the Hibs fans played their part but we were wonderful:) The display at the beginning was amazing and wee Fenlon had a good look at it probably remembering the times he stood with us.

     

     

    It was one of those special Celtic days.

     

     

    I saw Griffiths applaud our support well done to him.

  11. Sir Paul

    Total erse….

  15. BurghBhoy, had a quiet night last night, watched a re-run of the game, couple of beers, so nice and steady today.

     

     

    Googy, jealousy is a terrible thing, it’ll eat you up;-)

     

     

    Had a nice day at the shops with Mrs Doc, a wee Tapas lunch thrown in, so a full day, hence the wee bit of luck comment in my second post, or was it the third? Hehehehe.

  16. I wonder if these sentiments would be echoed by the Hibs supporters who spat on my mates car before the game.

     

     

    Or the Hibs supporter who sang “Glasgow Celtic paedophiles” as he walked along Battlefield Rd in anticipation of the game?

  17. Eurochamps67 on

    It was a Great day yesterday, celebrated well into this morning.

     

    Celtic showed that we are the dominant force in Scotland and Lenny is correct when he says our team does not get anywhere near enough praise.

     

     

    I note Platini’s definition of cheating, ( “buying” players you cannot afford ), and wonder how it can be reconciled with the SFA and MSM view of the deid club’s use of EBTs and non tax paying.

     

     

    Season 2012/13 was tremendous success in so many ways.

     

    Now to enjoy the close season.

  18. Gordon_J, good article, 6weeks until the CL qualifiers begin, wow, a short close season for the players, sort of justifies the manager letting a few go on holiday last month.
