It seems some clubs' supporters still care about such trivialities…

…of course Dr. Death has received no such criticism as Celtic drop their pants and
bend over at the promise of a bit of cash. :eek:

John Reid suffered a baptism of fire at his inauguration as Celtic chairman
yesterday when he was barracked as a "war criminal" from the floor at the
Glasgow club's AGM.

There have been rumblings of discontent from the more radical elements of the
Scottish champions' support since it was announced that Reid, a former home,
defence and Northern Ireland secretary, would replace the outgoing Brian Quinn.

A minority group of vocal fans have made it plain they feel Reid's role as a
member of the Labour government, which played a key role in the invasion of
Iraq in 2003, is at odds with the compassionate traditions of their club.

One shareholder told the Celtic board that Reid's appointment represented "a
direct contradiction to the principles upon which the club was founded" and that
the new chairman was "not fit for purpose".

Such sentiments were echoed by others, including Jeanette Findlay of the Celtic
Supporters' Trust, who claimed Reid would be "forever identified with a political
and human disaster" and that he was a "hate figure at home and abroad". Amid
similar comments - one supporter said he had been visiting Celtic Park for 60
years but would not renew his season ticket on account of Reid's new role.'

Seems to be tradition these days to throw the tpoys out the pram.....

Stamp your feet.......

And then declare "OK I'm not buying a season ticket !!!"

United had it and now Celtic........

But attendances never change !!!

Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face :D

'War Criminal' huh :confused:

Thats just too bizarre :eek:
