Celtic fans are demanding that their club takes action after the latest example of being treated as second class citizens.
Six days after announcing that their Betfred Cup semi-final with Hearts would be played in Glasgow at 7.45pm the SPFL have decided to switch the match to another city and kick-off at 1.30pm.
The decision has outraged hoops supporters who have been given no explanation as to why their match was switched and not the Sevco v Aberdeen match.

Did Murrayfield owners have more say in who played in Edinburgh than Celtic FC?

When does the club plan on sticking up for the support, seems to me the fans give everything with very little coming back. ????

Ridiculously poor statement that it has no usefulness for stand up and support for the fans.

Hearts have now been presented with a neutral semi-final on a ground that they used as their home for part of last season.
Over the last decade the Scottish football authorities denied Celtic a place in the Champions League qualifiers in the 2011/12 season as they pandered to a club that broke UEFA regulations and were licensed despite owing HMRC almost £3m.
From the 2000/01 season until the 2010/11 season the old Rangers (IL) club fielded ineligible players in every competition that they played in without any points deduction- the penalty handed to other clubs for genuine mistakes for fielding ineligible players.
