Green Brigade planning enormous TIFO displays for Celtic v St Johnstone
Celtic supporters’ group The Green Brigade have planned two enormous TIFO displays for the Bhoys game against St Johnstone on Saturday night at Hampden.
Celtic take on St Johnstone in the Premier Sports Cup Semi-Final. The timing has been marked with sadness, given the tragic passing of Lisbon Lion and club icon Bertie Auld.
To that end, the Green Brigade are preparing two displays; one for pre-match, and another on the 67th minute.
Of course, Celtic fans are used to commemorating the 67th minute of matches. A song for Lisbon, and a light display, have been commonplace at Celtic Park over recent years.
The Green Brigade announced [via North Curve Celtic]:
Famously, Bertie Auld was more than happy playing at Hampden. As the Green Brigade point out, Auld compared it to a training pitch. And why not? Auld won four Scottish League Cups and 3 Scottish Cups in the Green and White of Celtic.
Therefore, the tribute is well-placed. And it should bring enormous colour and character to the national stadium.
Green Brigade displays for Celtic icon will mark Bertie Auld’s passing in a fitting style
After all, you want to talk about bringing colour and character to proceedings? Bertie Auld was famous for doing it. An innately personable, charismatic and passionate man, he was such an incredible ambassador for the club in his retirement.
As a player, of course, he was monumental in our most successful teams. A trusted commandant of Jock Stein, Auld patrolled the midfield with bite, enterprise and courage.
A player and a man so used to the big occasions at Hampden, these displays by the Green Brigade are a meaningful tribute to a Celtic legend.
We’re excited to see what they come up with for Saturday night, in an already huge game for Ange Postecoglou and the Bhoys.
