The arrogance of this man..

I think the issue may be that this guy is well versed in harassing celtic fans. Outside the stadium his force and him bullied celtic fans all the way to the stadium. When those fans finally made it to the safety of paradise they could sing their songs and party.....now the safety of paradise is gone. He will be there monitoring them. Having his security bully the fans in the stadium. Watch fans being ejected for holding up signs that the board don't like or singing songs the board don't like. He will also know the faces of the GB. He will have them searched more often than usual. Preventing them getting to their seats for kick off....shit like that, that will ruin the match day experience for many.....

Or he might be absolutely fine...who knows???
Mate am no defending the rat fuck!!am just saying regardless of any protest that cunt Desmond will do excactly what he wants so it’s just wasting energy.

Honestly, I know very little about the functions of this job. So I am wondering about the following:

Does his remit include the monitoring of visiting fans? If so, I cannot wait for him to tackle the damage and destruction caused, the offensive graffiti, the sectarian and racist songs of one particular club's fans. Will he take action to tackle them? Will he, representing Celtic, publicly highlight the law breaking behaviour? Will he be vocal on Police Scotland inaction? Has he a role to play regarding the treatment of Celtic fans visiting other grounds? Where he identifies issues, will our Board then take action, to protect the safety and wellbeing of their own supporters?

Or is this just another example of the Celtic Board giving a nice sinecure to a friend ?

So, we should just turn up watch games and ignore what's going on everywhere else. The board love fans like you.
I'm awfully glad that those of us who were around pre 94 didn't accept what was going on, or there would be no club to follow. HailHail

The point is this Higgins character took delight in getting his officers to harassing celtic supporters going to games. He would also get his officers to carry out Dawn raids on GB members before Glasgow derby games.
Now , we celtic supporters are getting to pay the arseholes wages. Don't fucking think so
Spot on mate 👍

Aye exactly I'm a bit surprised the GB think they can dictate who gets the security job tbh....I've said it before all cops are scumbags but as an employee of the club he's not gonny be targeting us anymore...
shud have waited till he fucked up In some way before kicking off I think this particular fight was/is pointless tbh no offence to anybody involved just don't think it's a worthy fight
It's not the GB's fault. They highlight the issue only. Love them or hate them Parkhead would never create such a brilliant atmosphere without them. Nobody criticised them for Berties display or for many tifos they have displayed. Nobody says much about the good causes they support. The fines Celtic have had because of them is a drop in the ocean comparitively. Merchandise sold on one match day would probably cover it.

That aint aimed at you Cairnsy. Just get tired of people having a go at them. They bring a lot to the table so to speak.

Love that Dill 😹, Catherine dragged me out on one of her aurora photographing sessions a couple of years ago against my will, no aurora so she gave me a couple of glow sticks and told me to make patterns for her to photograph..... she's had a lot of photos in the papers, this one didn't make it! 😹

I love wit they bring to matchday mate I was just meaning in isolation a fans group trying to tell the club who to employ I thought at the time was optimistic but today I seen the message to board with all the signatories now theres a bit of weight behind them now I can see them getting they're way it just looked to me at first it wasn't a fight they cud ever win but now they just might unfortunately all the good they do gets blanked for the odd time they misjudge something
