Celtic Fans In Poppy Outrage

A HARDCORE group of Celtic fans are plotting to disrupt a poppy day event at Parkhead.

They will SHUN a minute's silence for war dead - then WALK OUT of the stadium.
The protest comes after Celtic agreed, like all other SPL clubs, to wear poppies on their jerseys this weekend.
That angered supporters group the Green Brigade, which is spearheading the planned action at Saturday's game with Motherwell.
They are backed by Cairde Na h√Čireann - a sister group of Sinn Fein - and TAL fanzine, which said: "We will be protesting against this pro-imperialist nonsense."
They'll hand out leaflets showing grieving Iraqi civilians and calling Hoops chairman John Reid - the former Defence Secretary - a WAR CRIMINAL.
And the Association of Irish Celtic Supporters Clubs said yesterday it should've been consulted over the poppy decision.
A club spokesman said: "We expect any protest to be inconsequential."
