False accusations made against Celtic fans

Published on Tuesday 24th May, 2011 by Celtic Trust

A number of people have contacted us regarding inaccurate comments made by Rob MacLean and Pat Nevin during the half-time commentary on Saturday during the Scottish Cup Final.  Rob MacLean apparently apologised to viewers because they could hear 'sectarian' singing from the Celtic fans.  Pat Nevin joined in and both of them indicated that Celtic had asked their fans to stop singing sectarian songs.  Celtic fans were not singing sectarian songs and Celtic have never asked them to stop singing sectarian songs - largely because there is no mass chanting of sectarian songs by Celtic fans!

If anyone heard these comments and wishes to complain then you can contact the BBC complaints department at:

I never heard the comments made by the foul Rob MacLean or the lamentable Mr Nevin. If anyone could point me to a video or audio recording of the comments being made I would be very, grateful. I know it's a long shot and a big ask but I would really like to hear them myself before getting stuck into them.
Hail Hail
