Can you prove your statement about the racisism element? I will grant you however that there are some shall we say people with views that not all the support agree with-but would this not be pretty much as for nearly all pro teams with sizeable(ish) support?
Can you prove that Celtic have more racist fans?

If not then you need to park your indignation.

I've lived in Glasgow for 20 years, not a fan of either and socialise with people from both. I'd say the bad eggs are pretty equal.
It’s not all about the people who live in Glasgow. Both will have sectarian followings, that’s a given, but in terms of racism the right wing nuts who affiliate with the holy trinity of Rangers/Chelsea/Linfield are the typical EDL/loyalist fraternity who embrace racism like it’s a calling.

See FunkyColdMedia's comment please.
Why do I have to prove anything? You're the one casting aspertions! I've said that there's nutters at all clubs!
As for parking my indignation? What indignation?
I said that someone shouldn’t leave Celtic to Rangers if they want to support a club with fewer racist supporters. If you think I’m wrong then you must have evidence that Celtic had more racist supporters.

Never blocked anyone on here before, first time for everything!
Ken....Think he's bored with lockdown and letting it get to him.Simple things eh,but suppose there's a www.somewhere showing one's as bad as other,just can't be ersed looking for it to help in our 'informed' friends education.Oh well,onwards and upwards-on to more important things-how's your course holding up? Blowing an absolute hoolie here today and pissing down.
Don't see us playing until Friday at this rate.
P.S.Will you be joining the 'racists' for Thursdays game-on BT Sport3-wonder if as mad as last one??

Jimbo,
Dunbar is in really great condition. Managed to squeeze in 11 holes yesterday late afternoon.
Will not see Thursday's game as I don't have BT sport.
Would pay as a one off as I have done for a few games from Ibrox this season.
Cheers

Mention of Dunbar and I am sent musing - we have close friends who live in Haddington and having visited them not so very long ago my wife is rather taken by that part of the world and it's proximity to Edinburgh. Me? I was taken by it's proximity to places such as Dunbar and Gullane...my wife understands...

Like you played yesterday(took out new member-beast of a hitter,but really nice boy) got 12 in,played well and lovely day-course is superb condition.
As to Thursday ,will probably have to take valium if anything like last game,but we should see them off!-Onwards and upwards eh?
Wonder where the league will be won? Would it be really naughty(and dare I say 'racist'?) if the deed was wished for at you know where?:devilish:
Think Bill would like that :D

As an aside ....while typing ,was sure I heard PIPING coming across the field between us and the high school over the way(really good too)
Any way down to back door to open and check-sure enough-coming from schooll, when it stopped I loudly whistled(fingers in mouth style) and clapped!
Girl's voice comes over shouting 'thank you here's some more') I've put Attenborough on pause to listen--so nice to hear especially with a girl playing!!
Turning into a nice day after all-despite weather.
Jimbo:)

Haddington is a lovely town. Lived here for 12 years now.

I do love a bit of piping - strong tradition in my family on my mum's side (on my dad's side it's accordions and dance bands :) ). My nephew is an excellent piper and his sister - my niece - plays tenor drum in Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia (16 times world champions).

Both clubs have a hugely embarrassing sectarian element to their support and it will never change. In terms of being racist, Rangers fans sang for people to go home because a famine is over, specifically aimed at the Irish. Is that racist? If not then what is it?

Val..could reply with large/majority section of Celtic support going on about Protestant 'Huns' is that racist/religious?
Look sod the semantics of this-we'll be here forever-There should be no place for any of this behaviour from anyone/anywhere in this day and age-surely??
I've stated previously that I ran with a mixed crowd in my youth(still do)-we went to OF games together,went to different ends,took part in all the shit singing(shame-daft boys)met up after,got pissed,had fun,went home together,stayed in each others houses--even had to go to St.Maggie Marys some Sunday a.ms thanks Mrs.Atkins(otherwise no brekkie-just IrnBru).Loved it all
Would I swap it for being a racist/religious bigot-NO we didn't know any better,but we learned our own way with age,would I turn my back on these guys because they went to a different school/church? Not a chance! We were mates and that's all that mattered
My last word on this crap dropped on us by a-put your own word in-so let's move on eh?
