Anthony Joseph has diverted off his usual beat of breaking football news to discuss the values of Celtic.
It can be an emotive subject for many fans who hold onto the founding principles of Brother Walfrid of forming a football club to feed the poor of Glasgow’s east end.
How that founding principle matches in with paying Chief Executive Peter Lawwell £3.5m during the 2018/19 season is an issue that compromises much of the issues that drove the club to prominence as the representatives of the Irish Catholics in Glasgow.
I actually think it’s the new generation trying to keep the traditions and values of the club alive and prominent. Celtic’s main selling point is its values, history and supporters. Without that it’s just a normal football club, like any other. But we all know that’s not the case

Over the last 12 months there has been increasing fracture between the club executive and ordinary ticket buying supporters.
A number of issues have been raised by supporter organisations such as the Celtic Trust that have been given no encouragement by the hierarchy.
With Season Tickets to sell and a new manager to unveil the club is expected to increase their efforts at engagement and communications with supporters.
