    Club statement on Alex Salmond comments

    By: on 16 Feb, 2012 14:45

  • IN response to comments made by First Minister Alex Salmond, the club have released the following statement:

    “We are very disappointed with the First Minister’s claims that Celtic ‘need’ Rangers and that Celtic ‘can't prosper unless Rangers are there’”.

    "This is simply not true. In a series of interviews given just three days ago, we made it abundantly clear that Celtic has a well-defined strategy and a business plan independent of the fortunes of any other club. That remains absolutely the case.

    “The predicament of Rangers is clearly a serious and complex matter with a whole range of possible outcomes.

    “However, we are extremely well-qualified to make our own position clear and have no wish to see this being misrepresented for political reasons .”
