Celtic Supporters Unveil Angry Banners Aimed at Club’s Players and Board

Celtic Supporters Unveil Angry Banners Aimed at Club’s Players and Board

Celtic supporters unveiled several banners before today’s Premiership match against Ross County, taking aim at the club’s under-performing players and the much-maligned board.

The first banner, as you can see below, focussed on the squad, and claimed that the famous hooped shirt had shrunk to fit inferior players, in a reference to Jock Stein’s famous quote.

A second banner, which is featured in the main image above, was much more specific and hit out at principal shareholder Dermot Desmond and chief executive Peter Lawwell.

Rather embarrassingly, the fans responsible for making the banners managed to spell ‘Lawwell’ wrong, using just one W instead of two.

 

The protests come one week after Celtic’s Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to bitter rivals Rangers, and just a few days after it was announced that current manager Ronny Deila will depart the Glasgow club in the summer after two disappointing years at the helm.

What do you make of the banners?
