This Scotland, Alas

I gather this banner was seen at Celtic Park yesterday. Notice how these clowns can't even spell. I wonder, too, what the club's chairman, Dr John Reid, thinks of this sort of caper. For the rest of us, it kind of leaves one thinking that if there isn't a refereeing conspiracy out to get Celtic (the buggers won 9-0 yesterday) then perhaps there should be?

Then again: why give them the satisfaction? Also worth noting: this sort of dreary "protest" is so familiar that, like the 90-minute (at best) bigotry at Ibrox, it barely warrants much of a mention in the press.
