Would love nothing more than Morelos scoring the winning goal to make us champions at their midden, and Arfield to grab Laxalt by the hair and tie him to the goal post to celebrate. We deserve th

That’s actually not unbelievable as unbelievable as that is.

'About 70-80 per cent of the group are teetotal and you know the inference and innuendo that he is making.

'Don't blame the players' - EPL managers react to COVID-safe celebrations

"It is not a stag do, it isn't an '18-30' even though it has been portrayed like that.

"We went out there with the best intentions.

"The lads had one day off and they are entitled to a bit of down time."

He continued: "The players were sitting in a bar. For me, they weren’t on top of each other, they were sitting in a bar, they were outside. In our bubble, having a beer. For half an h

Neil Lennon celtic rant LIVE as fizzing boss has Dubai critics in his cross hairs

"This has been made out to be something that it’s not. And like I said, it’s not like we were doing a 20 man conga which was lauded by all on sundry because Scotland qualified for the Euros.

"Our players weren’t behaving like that at all.

"And like I say, 80 per cent of them are T-total so for anyone to call it a jolly, it’s totally disrespectful to them as professionals and the way they conduct themselves as men. There was nothing wrong with the photographs, and by the way it’s illegal to take pictures in Dubai without someones consent.

"However, we weren’t hiding anything, we were sitting there on our day off, having travelled all through the night, which is also our problem not anybody else, but it’s impossible to do any training the next day so they were given some down time. We all were."



Walker made his impassioned on-air rant a week ago during the live build-up and slaughtered the decision making process that lead his former team to decide a trip to the UAE was appropriate.

He said: "I think what we've seen is some dismal governance. First of all from the joint response group - this is a body that also agreed to sign off on celtic's trip to Dub


"At a time when they're approaching the government to plead a bit of poverty, apparently there's no money in Scottish football.

"I'm guessing this trip celtic went on to Dubai cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. They chartered their own aircraft, they stayed for five nights in five-star accommodation for, I don't know, 20, 30 people?

"It's extraordinary. And we're also seeing some dismal governance from this club (celtic). It is unbelievably arrogant to abuse your status as an elite sportsman.

"That was only brought in for international or elite competition, not for a jolly in Dubai.

"What the celtic supporters deserve is a bit of contrition from someone, anyone, with a bit of backbone at this club. Preferably Dermot Desmond because he's the one that makes the big changes, he's the one who could knock some heads together here

"You've got to remember celtic supporters are paying their season tickets to see all the big stars - they're not seeing them tonight. That's not they're fault, they're being short changed, and it's completely unacceptable."

Fellow pundit Alan Stubbs concurred with Walker's thoughts and the commentator continued.

He added: "Stubbsy, you and I have played for this club. The whole makeup of this club is social responsibility, a bit of understanding of what you're supporters are going through.

"They can't see their families, celtic are jetting off to Dubai and they still think it's the right thing to do.

"Dermot Desmond needs to get on this case and make things happen. It's completely unacceptable the way celtic have behaved

"I want them to show a bit of contrition, a bit of understanding that some celtic supporters can't see their grandchildren, can't see their families.

"celtic are being so arrogant. This is not the club I played for, there was no arrogance. And that is what is underpinning this whole debacle here, arroganc

"I don't think you've got anyone at the club who understands the supporters, who understands what they're going through.

"I'll say it again, they are paying good money for a season ticket to watch virtual games, they can't get into the stadium. They want to see the best players available.

"They're not getting value for money tonight - they are being cheated. Are they going to get a refund? It's extraordinary that there is no contrition at this club for what's happening here. It's a complete disaster."

What do you think John?

Is booze not illegal aswell , except for places reserved for Westerners?

I lived there.

There are lots of things that are against the law there (homosexuality, displaying non Islamic symbols (ie wearing a crucifix), sex outside marriage, prostitution, etc)

Realistically in resorts the law isn't applied, and many things are overlooked outside of them. There is a fair degree of common sense applied 99.99% of the time. The odd case where a cop goes full mental and prosecutes somebody gets headlines every few years, but it's very rare (and nearly always results in a pardon).

If you were taking pictures of Muslim women, against their consent, in a largely Arab area (which these bits of Dubai are not) - but...... that would be creepy, and there are laws in the UK to stop that too.
