Touch of Class

All credit to Celtic for the way they have spoken regarding Fernando Ricksen this week. The support from within football as a whole has been touching.

It has been pretty reaffirming that at the end of the day all clubs have the odd bampot associated with them but behind a lot of the bluster the majority of people genuinely care about our game and the people involved in it in the right way.

I have never seen anything like last night when the game was stopped by both teams during the minutes applause. A really moving sight.

And I have just seen the footage of Lawell and Lennon laying a wreath at Ibrox. That is a wee touch of class that should be applauded.

I do believe that the previous frosty relationship between executives of the two clubs has improved somewhat recently

..And yes, Hamish, last night was quite something which was most likely helped with the opposition being Dutch, but to see players, management, staff and supporters all applauding was something to be proud of

Only seen snippets of last nights rangers game - hadn’t realised about the minutes applause and the game stopping - sounds a really emotional moment.

We went through it with Jinky.

That fact Fernando was so young drives it home that it can strike at any time.

"bawbags who want to "die" for a "cause" they nor anyone else actually have any real interest far less a belief in."

That's the leading Brexiteers playbook 😂

It didn't officially get stopped but a good few players stood and applauded. The ball got passed about with no intent

Delayed taking a throw in

Even the ref joined in the applause

Nice touch

Didn't know about the 2 minutes applause, was very moving.

As someone who enjoys fitba but feels that situations like Fernando's are simply more important as a human being? I love that the two clubs can find common ground for a change, I remember well when it was Jinky and my Bear mates were fully respectful, I never forgot that
