42000…..UEFA ….Daggers


Celtic  fined £42,000 (50,000 euro) by Uefa for “illicit” banners at the home defeat by AC Milan.
Banners depicting IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands and Scottish historical figure William Wallace.
Celtic were fined £12,600 (15,000 euro) two years ago after supporters chanted pro-IRA slogans during a Europa League match against Rennes.
Celtic were fined £21,000 (25,000 euro) punishment after their followers unfurled a banner criticising Uefa and set off flares during a later match in the same competition at Italian side Udinese.
Celtic were fined £4,200 (5,000 euro) penalty was incurred three months ago when a firework was let off during the Champions League qualifier against Cliftonville.
£79.800 in fines in the last 2 yrs total.
Its very clear Uefa arent interested in the real issue in scottish football,and are persuing celtic  and there fans by imposing yet another ludicrous fine on the club,the supporters have had a herendous time off it in the last 18 months,all the while across the road its buisness as usual with the staunch loyalist pomp week in week out singing about being up to there knees in fenian blood.
There poppy day celebrations while reported by the media as sectarian ,were not so much as looked upon by Uefa,so its no wonder scotland/irelands catholics paranoia has returned if it had ever went away…while its ok for one namley the loyalists of sevco to sing songs of hate like the famine song,throw flares,fly sectarian flags like the red hand of ulster,celtic green brigade as a result of Uefa Pressure has been disbanded or at least broken up.
250 relocations and 128 suspensions have been imposed by celtic and for now it seems the victimisation of a section of the support goes on,if there had been some what a more even handed ness across the board ,we wouldnt be upset by Uefa ,,but clearly they only see Celtic as wrongdoers,while vandalism cant be condoned and flares are somewhat dangerous,the group only really ever put the message out what most would deny themselves to admit they were thinking.
Im writing this after todays game against hibernian where a whole new level of fan discrimination manifested at parkhead,where fans were turned away …..evicted from the ground ..or had there season book confiscated for either wearing anything with green brigade logos,che gevvara,mandela,palastinian affiliations,or irish flags of a political nature.
Within the stadium young fans trying to sing were told to stop when the songs were nothing bigoted or sectarian,heavy handed stewards harrasing people as well,the whole landscape has shifted in the last week,of course im not ignorant to say its ok for fans to rip out seats and throw flares this is wrong …the way this whole things been handled is what i see as a bit orchestrated,Focus,uefa and the club have had the specific fans victimised for the last 18 months,i say club but i mean the pressure on them from focus and uefa has forced there hand.
A empty parkhead today i feel will be mirrored throughout the remainder of the season,supporters are getting fed up with the treatment theve recieving from stewards and police,Uefa have imposed fine after fine on the club while ignoring the biggest tax fraud in world football at ibrox tax evader uk rangers deceased now sevco5088 continue to operate when they should have been finished for good for all there wrongdoings,uefa seem to think by ignoring this and punishing celtic it will all blow over,it might if they were a bit more even handed and punished the other side.
Theres a definite split between the fans now the hardcore fans like myself who were brought up with the politics the history and heritage and the old firm hatred,and the more liberal one dimensional fans who just support the team and arent interested in what gone before,both are good fans neither deserve to be victimised by the powers that be.
Scottish football is dying a slow death not because scotlands shame are dead,but because supporters have had enough of early morning raids at there homes,police showing up at workplaces,being filmed in the stadium,told not to sing to sit down ,dont wear this dont wear that,the fun has gone from the football day out how can we as fans introduce our kids to a matchday experience,this generation of kids are scared to go to games cause all they see is police and steward brutality.
I can safley say as i write this  i wont be back till theres huge change,im just one person but i know theres a huge amount of people out there had enough too,il always follow celtic but now not from within a football stadium the corruption is so rife,to be honest its not worth the effort anymore.. 
Send any emails to the below address if you or any other fan feel victimised on matchday video or photographic evidence is welcome hh
