Fans sing "Celtic Football Club, it's in the wrong hands" outside Parkhead

Celtic fans have again congregated outside of Celtic Park to protest against the current direction of the club.

In footage posted to The Daily Record Sport Twitter account, a small group of supporters could be heard singing “Celtic Football Club, it’s in the wrong hands!”

Other chants in opposition to Neil Lennon were also aired and the team bus was booed and jeered as it left the stadium.

Numbers were not quite on the scale of last week, but Police Scotland ramped up their presence in the area, even prior to kick-off today.

The team bus was escorted by police motorcycles before and after the match.

There is clearly growing anger and tension surrounding the situation, but hopefully, no-one has overstepped the mark, nor does so in the future.

In my opinion, chanting in support of change at Celtic is warranted right now, as long as it’s done safely.

The decision-makers at the club have badly let down supporters this season despite record ticket and merchandise sales.

Backed with cash from the masses, the Chief Executive and the Celtic board are stalling on making an important change in the dugout, as well as standing by while we regress in competitions at home and abroad.

As well as all that, their communication with supporters has been abysmal, something concluded by The Celtic Trust after a well-attended online meeting of fans yesterday.

They have a lot of bridges to build to regain the trust of their ‘customers’ ahead of next year’s plea for season ticket money.
