He won’t win any popularity contest but many were shocked to discover that Walker has been banned from Park.

According to the report in The Sun it seems that comments made on January 11 by Walker on Sky Sports about Celtic’s trip to sparked the action.

Strangely the former Celtic striker was on Sky Sports duty at the March 21 Glasgow Derby with news of his ban emerging on May 3 the same day that it was revealed he had been banned from for another Glasgow Derby.

Celtic fans are no cheerleaders for the media, they might disagree strongly with Walker on many issues but his comments about going to Dubai seemed in line with most . Peter Lawwell seemed to realise that making his only media appearance of the season to give a heavily qualified apology about the disastrous five day Dubai trip.

has been a regular target for the anger of Celtic fans. Last January he chose to make a very personal attack on quoting ‘facts’ that weren’t actually facts! Earlier that month Sky Sports had mistranslated quotes from Alfredo Morelos that claimed he had been subjected to racist abuse from Celtic supporters.

Media bans are something of a rarity by Celtic, nothing official has come out of the club but the timeline for this one seems highly unusual.
