Celtic fans are delighted to hear that the club will be defending midfielder Scott Brown, after the captain was cited by football authorties for celebrating Sunday’s derby win over Rangers at Celtic Park.

It was announced earlier today that there will be a hearing on May 2nd to determine whether there’s been a breach of Disciplinary Rule 77 which is related to acting ‘in the best interests of Association Football’.

The Hoops have until Wednesday 10th April to offer a full response and it’s clear that we will not backing down in our defence of the long-serving club icon.

Brown was punched in the face, elbowed and set upon by three Rangers players during the derby victory, as Neil Lennon’s side moved to within touching distance of an eighth league title in a row.

It was an emotional match and Brown was ecstatic at full-time, celebrating the win. Somehow that’s been deemed beyond the pale for some in Scottish football and now we have to go through this nonsense.

These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…

  • Celtic dong well, or worse still celebrating their success does not go down well in “official” Scotland where historically the feeling has been that “fenians should be seen and not heard.” This has reached incredible proportions in the last few years since the club known as Rangers went out of business and into liquidation. They have been squealing like pigs ever since. Us winning at their broken down stadium saw our players assaulted on the park, subject to racial abuse whilst bottles, coins and batteries rained down. Because they couldn’t stomach our celebrations in Govan they decided to effectively ban us. Now they are apoplectic when we celebrate in our own ground in front of our own fans. Remember as far as official Scotland is concerned we should “know our place” at the back of the bus. Time those bigots got used to the new situation. We’re not going back. We’ll sit wherever we like and sing our songs of victory. Those songs are always especially sweet when we beat the establishment club and their rancid bigots and send them into another extended episode of weeping and gnashing of teeth. Like I said, there’s nothing sweeter!
