'Truth is...', 'We're imploding as a club' - Celtic fans react after another Hoops ultras group walks out in solidarity with Green Brigade

Many Celtic fans turned on another supporter’s group that showed solidarity with the Green Brigade by staging a walkout during Wednesday’s 2-1 win against St Mirren.

On a night of huge controversy in Scottish football, there was drama even before kick-off with the Green Brigade banned from attending the clash against the Buddies and fellow fans expressing their outrage over the board’s decision.

However, such support was not unanimous following the decision of another ultras group to stage a walk-out protest early into the victory at Parkhead on Wednesday.

Bhoys Celtic released a statement explaining that they left the match to show support for the Green Brigade, minutes after unfurling an anti-police banner at Parkhead.

The banner read: “Police Scotland. Clowns all year year around. Not just at Halloween.”

Not all Celtic fans supported the protest, with the criticisms including it was “embarrassing”, “weird” and indicative of an “imploding” club and all-round supporters’ base.

Others suggested it would be a more powerful statement not to buy the club’s merchandise or to not turn up to the stadium at all.
