A Celtic badge appeared to be projected on to a building in Palestine last night just days after fans of the club showed their support for the Middle Eastern state.
Hoops supporters waved Palestine flags before, during and after their Champions League play-off first leg tie with Israel champions Hapoel Be’er Sheva on Wednesday night.
That backing has landed them in bother with UEFA since, with Europe’s football governing body charging the Scottish champions for displays of an “illicit banner” inside the ground.
But they’ve also gained a lot of fans in Palestine, with many taking to Twitter to join in on the #ThanksCelticFans hashtag which has been proving popular since Wednesday night’s game.
It now looks like some residents in Ramallah, a city in the central West Bank, have shown their gratitude by projecting a huge Celtic crest and the Scottish thistle on to the side of a building:
Celtic face punishment over bearing the flags, but it’s unclear what the club’s view is on the behaviour of their supporters.
They confirmed that they had received a charge from UEFA yesterday without commenting on the situation.
Celtic will head to Israel tomorrow before taking on Hapoel in the second leg of their Champions League tie on Tuesday.
