It is not often that this website features comments made by Rangers players, but one comment made by Ibrox midfielder Steven Davis might well be supported by some Celtic fans.

The Ibrox performer is not in favour of playing behind closed doors when football returns to Scotland.

“Do not believe”

“I personally do not believe games should be played behind closed doors. Hopefully this season can be played to a finish at the earliest but safest opportunity” Davis said, as quoted by the official Rangers website.


Some Celtic fans might well agree with both parts of Davis’ remarks. For a start, the season should be played to a finish, and hopefully the Hoops will go on to become nine in a row champions.

Secondly, the notion of playing games behind closed doors should be a non-starter. For a start, it would take away the atmosphere of the games.

Also, there would need to be medical personnel at those fixtures, and at the moment they have more important things to worry about.

It should not be forgotten that football is all about the fans, and if games were played behind closed doors that would take away a part of what makes football the game it is.

Atmosphere will be amazing when game returns

Just imagine the atmosphere that will be created when the Hoops run out on to the pitch to 60,000 fans in the first game when football returns.

It will be a wall of sound, as fans will have been desperate to see their favourites in action. Therefore, you have to think that some Celtic fans are in agreement with the remarks made by Davis.

It is not often that Celtic supporters will concur with comments made by someone associated with Ibrox. However, in this instance, Davis might well find favour with some Celtic fans, as he wants to see football return and not played with no fans.
