So as we know restrictions have been critically ramped up today amidst heightening levels of infection, and Ibrox Noise will remain online with you all during this so you won’t be left without your fix of the Famous.
However, the reason for that intro is this infamous trip by Celtic to Dubai.
Is it just us or is ‘everyone in this together’ except Celtic players who can go off on a jolly to the Middle East without recrimination?
We were pretty sure there’s strict travel restrictions going on while the green and white lot take a completely unearned saunter around the pool.
Indeed, the understanding we have, and I assure you the rules are as complicated as anything, is that in the UK at least, no one is allowed in without quarantine unless they’re a business traveller (this protects the UK economy, which is a priority as much as health).
Our point being if that’s the rules for the UK, Europe and the Middle East, which have been hard hit too by all this, surely have their protocols in place as well.
And the Scottish government have waded in tonight, confirming Celtic’s trip out there was not approved by them, and in fact the Parkhead side have decided they’re better than everyone else.
John Swinney admitted the example set by Neil Lennon and co is a bad one, and at a time Joe Punter is restricting himself and Jane is doing likewise, Celtic players swanning off to the Middle East without a care in the world is being frowned on by all and sundry.
It has been further confirmed Celtic have lied about their trip east, claiming they sought permission from Holyrood, something entirely denied by those in power, who have revealed the only trips out by elite sport allowed are those for competitive purposes, not so folk can braid Diego Laxalt’s hair next to the pool.
This one is a very developing story…
