The Green Brigade have unveiled another new banner outside Celtic Park this week and accompanied it with a withering statement aimed at Chief Executive Peter Lawwell.
A banner was previously put up at the stadium on Monday, again aimed at Lawwell.
This time the banner reads: “Wanted: Fired or Resigned for Gross Negligence. Reward: 60,000 season tickets.”
Images were posted to the North Curve Celtic Twitter account, along with a statement from the fan group.

The statement said, in part: “As a new era dawns at Celtic, fans have an opportunity to enact change in how our club is governed. The relationship between the support and the current custodians is beyond repair. A structural change is required to put the lifeblood of Celtic first: the fans.
“We believe that The Celtic Trust is the vehicle of that change and while the journey towards fan ownership may be long, meaningful fan engagement will only improve as we progress that campaign. We urge all fans to join The Celtic Trust.”
Green Brigade back The Celtic Trust
We’ve discussed fan ownership and The Celtic Trust extensively on 67 Hail Hail over the last few months.
If you want to know about them and their aims, then I’d recommend watching our interview with Trustee Jeanette Findlay.
The Celtic support is wide-ranging, and it’s unrealistic for everyone to think the same about everything.
However, a single goal of fan ownership and accountability at Celtic Park is hopefully appealing to enough that pressure can be ramped up on the current ‘custodians’.
Supporters have been badly let down this season, and the longer the board look to deflect from their mistakes, the more credible fan organisation becomes.
