There is no doubt Celtic’s shambolic situation gets more serious with every passing hour and revelation.
It’s hard to know exactly how to process the gravity of what this cesspit of a football club has done, having decided they were above restrictions and swanned off to Dubai to get a suntan, they have now returned and no one seems to know formally whether or not they are to isolate for 10 days, despite the fact one of them tested positive.
It’s all incredibly seedy, disappointing, worrying, and sets a dreadful example if they are allowed to face Hibs tonight.
Don’t forget, Rangers played this team just over a week ago, and while so far there have been no repercussions for Steven Gerrard’s men, it’s clear that there could have been, and anything less than Hibs Celtic being called off tonight is nothing more than a public safety risk.
There are being claims made that it’s not just the unnamed Celtic player positive, but manager Neil Lennon too, and if that’s true, the implications are colossal.
The Scottish Government were clear – the only exceptions to the new restrictions did include elite sports for competition purposes, but Celtic, of course, did not go to Dubai for that purpose.
They went off for R&R and every single media group is pummelling them and potentially the SFA not to mention the government themselves for potentially not enforcing this rule as they should be.
In short, Celtic have violated guidelines, and despite all the figureheads like Jason Leitch having told us for around a year that symptoms can take almost 10 days to surface, the Parkhead mob get to return to Glasgow without any problem?
If this is to be the case, it’s disturbing, and suggests Celtic still have deep influence in high places.
