CELTIC Football Club would like to send its support to the city of Liverpool, Liverpool Football Club and, most importantly, to the families of the 96 people who died in the Hillsborough disaster on April 15, 1989.

Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: “There has always been a strong bond between Celtic and Liverpool FC, and between supporters of both clubs, and the Celtic family has long supported the campaign for Justice for the 96.

“On this important day, when previously unseen official documents have been released for the first time, the hope is that it will bring justice, and the truth about what happened at Hillsborough, a step closer for all those involved.

“As always, our thoughts and prayers remain with the families of those who lost loved ones on that tragic day when 96 people went to a football match and did not return home.”

Manager knows home support will be vital

CHAMPIONS 2012

NEIL Lennon’s delight at seeing his side record an impressive 2-0 victory over Helsingborgs in Sweden was tempered by the fact he knows there is still another 90 minutes of UEFA Champions League play-off football to be played.
And the Celtic manager saw enough in the first leg to know that Helsingborgs remain dangerous opponents. That’s why he’s looking for the Celtic fans to roar the team on to complete the job next Wednesday, August 29.

Celtic Park is set for another special European night, with the Hoops aiming to secure a place in the group stages of the competition. And the home support, envied throughout Europe, can be that vital twelfth man which propels Celtic into taking their place amongst Europe’s elite.

“Our home record is very, very good,” said the manager. “We’ll set the team up a little differently next week and I’d like to think that we’ll be in the ascendancy in the home game.

“It’s a great result for us to take into the game – a clean sheet and two away goals was more than we could have asked for.

“But the job is only half done. We’ve got a big game at Celtic Park, and Helsingborgs showed how dangerous they can be and we have to be careful but it’s a great start in the tie for us.”

Celtic won the game thanks to goals from Kris Commons and Georgios Samaras, while Fraser Forster produced an outstanding performance to deny Helsingborgs on several occasions.

And it was a great team performance, with the players showing resilience, character and quality to win their second successive away European tie this season.

“I’m really proud of them, and delighted for them,” the manager said. “I’ve had my time of playing in the Champions League and winning championships and it’s their time now.

“I want them to experience it and it will enhance them as players, but they know they’ve still got one more game to go.

“They’re pretty grounded boys. They know they’ve got a big game ahead of them next week but there’s a big prize at the end of it for them, and you can see what it means to them.

“Again, we might have to weather a storm at times but I’m certain we’ll have more possession in the home leg.”

European nights at Celtic Park are always special occasions and next Wednesday is sure to be another memorable night. And there are still some tickets available for the match (KO: 7.45pm).

The Ticket Office at Celtic Park will be open from 9.30am on Wednesday, August 22 for supporters wanting a ticket for the Helsingborgs game. Tickets are now on general sale, priced from £25 adults and from £15 concessions.

FAMINE SONG ” RACIST ” ??? DECIDE FOR YOURSELF !

YCV Shankill Road band playing outside Catholic Church in Belfast

The Famine Song is popular among some Rangers FC fans who sing it as an insult to rival Celtic supporters. The song was first heard in 2008 and is set to the tune of the Beach Boys ‘ Sloop John B , itself adapted from the Caribbean folk song ‘ The John B Sails.

It’s lyrics have been changed to refer to the Irish Famine, which led to the deaths of one million and the emigration of a million more Irish Catholic‘s to North America, Scotland and England. The original chorus : ” I feel so broke up – I wanna go home ” is replaced with : ” The Famine is over – why don’t you go home ? ” It has been described by Scottish Premier League leaders as ” Racist ” rather than sectarian.

The Republic’s consul general approached the Scottish government about the song and efforts have been made to drive the tune from the soccer terraces. In November 2008 a Rangers fan was found guilty of a breach of the peace for singing the song during a game in Kilmarnock. The proceedings led three Scottish judges to rule that the song was racist because it targeted people of Irish origin.
