So this week Neil Lennon, the manager of Celtic Football club in Glasgow as well as two other notable Celtic fans were sent letter bombs to their famly homes. The article above provides the majority of what I have to say on the issue, and its late and I’m tired so I’m not going to add too much more, but I hope that this level of violence is what has finally, hopefully, woken the country up with regards to the sectarianism that is constantly in the background of old firm derbys. Its sickening to think that people would go to this length to claim their allegiance to a football club, religion or nationality… whatever their message was. And its clear this isn’t just a one off incident, fans on both sides (as the article goes into in greater detail) consistently use violence and racial slurs as a means of supporting their football teams… it all just seems so unnecessary but yet so dangerous, so to all the bigots in Glasgow and around the world, CTFD.
