Hoops ignore jibe from Green

Over the weekend the Yorkshireman made references to the Scottish

champions’ 125-year history while claiming clubs were struggling to

sell season tickets. Green also claimed the decision of over 30

clubs to allow The Rangers to start off in the fourth tier of

Scottish football was ‘driven by bigotry’. But Celtic are adamant

Green’s statement is a matter for the Scottish football authorities

to deal with. When asked for a response to the comments, a Celtic

statement read: “These comments are not worthy of any response from

Celtic FC. ”We presume the matter would now be one for the

Scottish Football Association and the Scottish Football League to

deal with.”
