The taigs claimed that many on that list were made up. Who knows?

We managed to do ok without any of them at the club, so that will do for me! :crabflute:

Im with you on that 1, however i dont enjoy bullshit being spouted by our own :disappointment:

I wouldnt even waste your time, there are loads.

I think VB done an article on it last year to dispel claims by an Irishman that we are discrimintaory against their people.

I remember we proed there were catholic players at the club, then they turned it round again and said "aye but none fae the Republic" wacko.gif

They are deranged and will tell any lie to blacken our name in any way they can. They are sad pathetic people. Its the Celtic way.

Actually, I think there was a little humour in there. It was more a dig at his apparent willingness to sign for the great unwashed a few years back.

I didnt think so. You had me going there! :) His allegiance growing up was for Hibs, who have loads of Protestant fans, when asked to sign for Celtic, who could blame him? I didnt. I was just happy they punted him and he ended up back with us.
