    Celtic Football Club Statement

    By: Newsroom Staff on 02 Jun, 2015 09:32

  • CELTIC has opposed the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012 from the outset as evidenced by our submission to the Justice Committee in 2011.

    We believe that the Act has the potential to discriminate against football supporters.

    Celtic continues to oppose the Act and, as a contribution to the Scottish Government’s review of the Act, met recently with the Scottish Government to explain our position. 

    We proposed that at a minimum certain offences under the Act should be repealed.  Celtic also recently met with Fans Against Criminalisation to discuss how to take this issue forward.

    We wait with interest the findings of the forthcoming review and trust that it will be the full, transparent and in-depth review that football fans expect.
