Celtic: Green Brigade send clear message to Peter Lawwell following apology video

Celtic: Green Brigade send clear message to Peter Lawwell following apology video - Celtic News

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has been sent a firm message by a supporters’ group on the back of his ‘parody-like’ apology video.

Green Brigade respond

The Bhoys’ board member recently apologised after the club initially defended their decision to head to Dubai on a warm-weather training camp – shortly after their 1-0 defeat to Rangers.

But after pictures emerged of the players lounging around, 13 players were forced to self-isolate and injured defender Christopher Jullien tested positive, Lawwell said sorry but quickly disapproved of the media coverage, adding that the virus has played a detrimental part of their mediocre season.

There's no way you can name all ten obscure Celtic players! First up, who is this?

North Curve (via @NCCeltic) posted a lengthy statement along with banners featuring Lawwell, describing the club’s justifications as “parody-like” and stating that he should resign with immediate effect.

Celtic are currently 21 points behind arch-rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, were forced to play a threadbare squad against Hibernian and are already out of the Europa League.

This is not the first appeal that the fan group have made. Protests began to rise above the water at the end of November, shortly after their second 4-1 to Sparta Prague and have continued ever since.

Transfer Tavern Verdict

If Lawwell didn’t already feel like there was pressure on him, he certainly will now. Celtic’s conduct over the past few weeks has rightly made the fans feel aggrieved about the way the club has been run.

There seems to be a lack of understanding from the 61-year-old that making the fans feel united with the club is the wrong thing to do – considering it was Celtic themselves that are to blame for the position they are in.

With reports suggesting that transfer guru Nick Hammond’s position is under threat, it will be interesting to see if Lawwell will follow him out of Celtic Park.
