Isn't in a great frame of mind due to Celtic fan support for the Palestinians.

I'm no sure how I feel about this one.

On one hand, I'm not going to criticise the wee man for his emotions, he's entitled to feel any way he wants and if his feelings against a section of the Celtic support are so strong that he want out, thats fair enough too.

On the other hand, the GB have flown their Palestinian flag for years, he presumably knew where their, and a lot of Scots in general, loyalties lay and yet his emotions didn't interfere with him signing a new deal last year until 2027. When he came on after his injury lay off he got a massive cheer welcoming him back from a fan base that like his pace and positivity.

Bottom line, he's not going anywhere until summertime, what to do?

Due to Intelligence received by Rangers and Celtic away fans will not be attending tomorrow's Women's match at Ibrox stadium

Groups of ‘risk’ supporters in a significant number had purchased tickets from the Celtic allocation

The wean’s away to a pro-Palestine rally today in town.
Or an anti-Palestine one. I wasn’t really listening.

Shambles from Rangers again

Claiming the GB are a risk. No issues from them at any other women's game including Celtic v Rangers at Hampden but suddenly Rangers have a problem with Celtic fans going to Ibrox

Sounds familiar

That's what they told you. They were too embarrassed to admit they were going to watch Partick Thistle

Just to cover all bases

It's clearly not easy for the boy being at Celtic, and I have some but limited sympathy for him. His upbringing has likely desensitised him to the decades of atrocities committed by Israel towards Palestine, so might feel any defence of Palestine is an attack on the existence of Israel itself - a false equivalency that has been pushed to great success. He probably doesn't see just how far to the wrong side of history his country has strayed. On the other hand, the GB immediately stumbled into the same clumsy narrative as others have by expressing their support for Palestine as support for Hamas. You can't support peace and support Hamas.

For my part, I think peace can only come from political change from within Israel. Even if they kill every single member of Hamas, another resistance will spring up even more hardened against the very existence of Israel in response. Unfortunately political demographics within Israel make it unlikely there will be any significant anti-apartheid shift, and the right to return primarily attracts other ultra-nationalist Jewish people, bolstering against any sentiments sympathetic towards Palestinian peoples that might organically arise amongst nth-generation Israelis. I don't believe for a minute though that the majority of Israelis actively support the genocide of the Palestinians, nor do I believe the majority of Gazan Palestinians desire the destruction of Israel. I think they mostly desire to live in peace, and the prevailing narratives from Hamas and the Israeli state is that destruction/oppression are the only means to achieve it. Good and bad people on all sides, and all sides trying to paint a binary good vs evil narrative which people will lap up because it's easier to process.

Bit of a ramble but hey ho, not had my coffee yet.
