Celtic Trust statement re Section 111

Published on Monday 5th August, 2013 by Celtic Trust

The following statement was released by the Green Brigade today:


''The Green Brigade are disappointed to announce that our section in 111 is to be closed by Celtic Football Club. Pathetically, this is due to ‘lateral movement’ which has been deemed ‘unsafe’ by the club’s directors. Our group and section has continually made concessions and strived to be co-operative with the club over various safety concerns so we are left dismayed that such drastic and immediate action has been taken over such a trivial and harmless movement. 

The Group is currently seeking legal advice and will consult with those in our section over the coming days. A detailed statement shall be released over the next few days and we'd advise all within our section to take no action until we have had the opportunity to discuss our options together. We would like to stress that this is not the end of the Green Brigade. Decisions and hurdles like these will only strengthen our Group's resolve. We would like to thank the Celtic support who have continually backed, funded and inspired our group from our formation to the present day and we can assure you that none of this support will have been in vain.

Until the last rebel.''

Given that there is not another home game until 24th August, there is plenty of time for this situation to be resolved and the Celtic Trust stands ready to offer any assistance that may be requested from our comrades in the Green Brigade.  We are aware that very productive discussions took place recently and it would be in everyone's interest that these are resumed and brought to a satisfactory conclusion.  We are dismayed that the situation has come to this given the division that this will sow between the club and the fans and we hope that steps can be taken to ensure that the Green Brigade are not dispersed and their contribution to the backing of our team is not lost.

disgracful decision by the board at times the green brigade can be over the top but so what - no worse than any other group of fans in any of the major clubs in europe.
As supporter for 40+yrs the old Jungle was far worse than terms of unacceptable songs - for most of the time the GB have been great
