There was outrage tonight at images of banners revelling in child abuse were displayed at Ibrox.

Despite the cherished place on the Ibrox payroll and horrific stories of child abuse carried out by Gordon Neely Ibrox fans have an incredible fascination for point scoring on the issue.

Two former coaches of Celtic Boys Club have recently been convicted of child abuse offences which seems to be a source of pride to some.

The banners were almost certainly produced and displayed by Ibrox season ticket holders.

One of those images shows Jock Stein who in 1971 helped the injured at the Ibrox disaster which claimed the life of 66 supporters. Two days before today’s match the home club decided to have a minute’s silence for those victims.

It was 1991 before the old club held their first minute of silence in memory of those that died, the tenth anniversary was completely ignored.

Before today’s match there was a bizarre memorial for the 66 that included John Greig laying a wreath at a statue of himself. Less than 50 fans bothered attending the ceremony in which Peter Lawwell and Ian Bankier represented Celtic.
