This is the point of Celtic


It has been two weeks since Celtic Park’s last outing as a football venue.  From this week, it becomes a socially=distanced dinning location for around 250 people, including frontline NHS staff.  The Celtic FC Foundation’s initial response is to provide £150k to stock local foodbanks and support charity partners in their efforts to cater for out most needy in this time.

For the time being, Celtic is no longer a football club; it is a source for good to a community that needs it, just as it was in 1888, when the first ball was kicked.  No other club is Britain has responded with the same resources or vision, but no other club has our heritage.

Today, most of us are concerned about our immediate families and there is nothing wrong with this.  But some people are ‘out there’ in our name.  There may be little you can do for this effort today, but we will have the opportunity soon enough.  Be proud of your club and know that, as Celtic fans, we have a social responsibility, otherwise, what’s the point?

    Seeing rumblings about Italy being raging about Europe turning their back, worse, refusing to send help or supplies, the Chinese, Russians and Cubans have provided more help than Europe.



    Maybe Italy exiting Europe soon, it is a bit of a betrayal.



    You hearing anything along these lines?
