Arsenal Condemns Celtic Fans' Sickening Behaviour

Arsenal have responded to the vile actions of the Celtic support as exposed our last news story.

Dear xxxx,

I'm very sorry that it has taken a little time to respond to you in writing - We generally try to reply to any emails we receive within 14 days.

As we discussed, the Club absolutely condemns abusive and intolerant behaviour from supporters in Emirates Stadium and makes every effort to take action against it.

As you mention in your email, the Club has the greatest possible respect for the armed services and the work they do. Arsenal FC works to raise funds for Help the Heroes, as well as making tickets available to serviceman when possible, through the charity. As such, we were of course very disappointed to see the reception that members of the army received during the Emirates Cup from a section of the visiting crowd.

In case of interest in the future, in a continued effort to eradicate anti-social behaviour at Emirates Stadium, the Club have put in place an Anti-Social Text Service, where we offer supporters the opportunity to identify and expose to Arsenal stewards any anti-social behaviour taking place close to them in the stadium.

Kind regards,

Arsenal Football Club

Facist Celtic fans pour sectarian abuse on brave British soldiers

Arsenal are believed to be investigating the behaviour of Celtic supporters who visited The Emirates ground for a 'friendly' in August 2010.

The video below was sent to the club by concerned members of the public and they are said to be studying the footage.

Fascist IRA slogans and ant-British songs were amongst the vile repertoire from the Celtic support.

Bhoys fan found guilty after Celtic fans run riot

Celtic fan kicked and traded punches with another man after watching Imps friendly

WOMEN cowered and traffic stopped when Lincoln City and Celtic fans started fighting, a court heard.

Self-employed Stewart Stanley admitted yesterday to kicking another man before trading punches with him during the High Street violence.

The Scotsman was fined £335 for his actions at Lincoln Magistrates' Court, but spared from receiving a three-year football banning order.

The court heard Stanley stopped watching Celtic's pre-season friendly with Lincoln City on July 24 because it was "rubbish".

The 32-year-old returned to the lower High Street area, where fighting broke out about 3.20pm.

Prosecutor Nick Todd said CCTV footage showed fans from both sides charging at each other, but Stanley was not involved.

Mr Todd added the father-of-one was later spotted kicking a man who ran past him.

In mitigation, Tony Freitus said: "He holds his hands up and accepts he did wrong."

Stanley, of Calderbraes Avenue, Uddingston, Glasgow, pleaded guilty to a public order offence. He was ordered to pay costs of £85 and a £15 surcharge.

Celtic fans Sectarian songs spark violence

A female Celtic fan was injured by a flare after violence broke out during a pre-season friendly match.

The incident was one of several flashpoints which led to 20 arrests as the Glasgow giants took on Lincoln City on Saturday.

Two Scots fans, Stuart Stanley, 32, of Uddingston, South Lanarkshire, and Adam Pollock, of Pollok, were held in custody over the weekend before being charged with fighting in the street and freed on bail yesterday.

Both will appear at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on August 17.

Five fans, including the girl, were injured as a result of the violence and all received hospital treatment before they were released.

Police said a St George’s flag was set on fire outside the Golden Cross pub before the match started and tensions were also heightened by pro-IRA chants.

A smoke grenade was set off and, after the game, there were a number of scuffles involving rival fans.

More than 1000 Celtic fans travelled to the Sincil Bank Stadium to see their side cruise to a 4-1 victory.

Twelve of those arrested were locals and the remaining eight are believed to have been visiting Celtic supporters.

PC Andy Pearson said: “There was some disorder outside the Golden Cross pub and some after the match.

“A lot of it came from the inflammatory nature of the songs from the Celtic fans. Many of the incidents were fuelled by alcohol.”

Before kick-off, police had to deal with fights between two Celtic fans and another brawl in the away end of the ground. Police were also called to several fights in the town’s High Street.

Lincoln City are managed by ex-Celtic striker Chris Hutton.

Celtic fans chief defends supporter in urinating storm

A Celtic supporters leader has defended a fellow member of his group for urinating on a young Celtic supporter in the stand during a Wednesdays Champions' League qualifier match against FC Braga at Celtic Park.

The leader of the 'Green Brigade', who have bizarrely been given their own section at the ground by the Parkhead club told the supporter (using the moniker RT10 in pictures below ) "Get your money back then Liam and dont come back if your that pissed off".

Sources believe the offender if caught could have been facing indecency charges and placed on the sex offenders list.

Other Celtic fans turned on the young lad who travelled to the game with his father by saying "You wouldn't have lasted two seconds in the Jungle" and "grow a set ya pussy". One even admitted this was normal behaviour at Celtic park by adding "I mind the days when this was the norm, and I'm only 25"
