Irish journalist views on the Celtic supporters

Written by Ian O'Doherty from Irish Independent

"Second only to Scousers, Celtic fans carry more chips on their shoulder than a branch of McDonald's.

Quick to express any sense of offence, they exhibit a sense of entitlement that would make a Cork man blush with shame.

And still they wonder why we hate them.

Well, if you're looking for a good example, how about Celtic fans' web message board, the, which has really been covering itself in glory -- by gloating over the murder of those two soldiers in Northern Ireland.

After one fan posted a picture of a gun made out of pizza dough, another posted: "Dominos Special Offer for British Soldiers. Buy one pizza, get a second topped for free. Apparently, they are making a killing."

The website refused to remove the comments, saying they don't censor or editorialise.

Which is fair enough -- but will any of these brave Celtic fans dare to drop by the Massereene Barracks to share their sophisticated wit with the grieving squaddies?"
