Trouble at mill for English football.

Probably only a matter of time before the Scottish game follows suit.....

It must be difficult for these lads, some of them will be earning 50 to 100 grand a week. Many of them will be single and live in massive homes! Perhaps they should take in a homeless person.

I have described nothing but what I saw myself, or learned from others of whom I made the most careful and particular enquiry.

40 out of 2500 tests isn’t a real problem, it does seem to be in batches at clubs though, with recent at Manchester City. English league taking a common sense approach at the moment. Time will tell.
Celtic will it’s stupid in my opinion are in an unrestricted country, only issue could be the bubble based on photos circulating which could be an issue.

The SG advised that this camp was permitted. They're doing what they always do.

What do they always do? Nicola Sturgeon was asked about it at her briefing today. Here`s what she said :-

"Elite sport has been in a privileged position and as long as that is the case it`s really important they don`t abuse it.

"I saw their [Celtic`s] statement and have not spent a lot of time looking into it, but as I understand it the government gave advice to the Scottish FA about the rules around training camps in November.

"The world has changed quite a bit since then but it`s not our role to sign off what a club does around these training camps.

"The rules may have to change, but they were that elite sportspeople and teams can go overseas if it is important in the context of training and competitions."

Same with Christmas. They allow it but advise against. If Sturgeon didn't think it was wise to visit her parents she shouldn't have allowed the plebs to do it either.

I don't think they should have gone either, but the club is claiming that they were being advised by the SG as recently as last weekend.

They can't both be right.

Celtic have a point G.G. and I also can`t see any difference from playing without a mask to training without a mask

Also to be fair to the Tic they flew out the day before lockdown was announced

I think it is more of a Moral issue when there was really no need to go in the present covid situation

The thing I can`t get my head round is that they asked for an extension against Hibs The Hibee`s refused but the rule says the home club has precedence ??

Surely both teams have to agree

Morally I think they’re in the wrong but don’t see how they can be punished for that.

However, the pictures coming back seem to show a complete lack of social distancing both at the pool and in bars - this is indefensible and should be investigated and dealt with.

They should have cancelled this trip,due to the pandemic. They must have known, it would have caused controversy.

Training and playing count as moments in passing - changing , showering etc should all be conducted under social distancing rules - same reason they have rules banning car sharing, ensuring social distancing when travelling on buses and planes etc - lying at the pool on sun beds right next to each other appears to be a flagrant beach of these rules - it beats me why they don’t have a compliance officer keeping an eye on things like this.

Maybe they’re deliberately trying to goad our Nicola into closing down sport - surely not.

``They should have cancelled this trip,due to the pandemic. They must have known, it would have caused controversy.``

I agree, but the SG should have made their view unequivocally, before the Celtic party left. It doesn`t appear to be the case - nobody in the SG has come out and said ``We advised Celtic not go``, not that it should have been necessary, but to come out after they`ve gone and criticise them for it is like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.

That's missing the point, EEP. Permission was initially given in August, when Covid transmission was relatively low. Going when infection rate has never been higher was unwise and irresponsible in the extreme. The photo of Lennon and Brown, circulating on social media, has made even the staunchest Celtic fans really angry.
