The Green Brigade staged a post-match sit in protest at the rumoured appointment of Bernard Higgins to a security role within Celtic.

In Celtic’s previous home match the Green Brigade remained silent for the first 30 minutes with banners unfurled opposing the appointment. Away to Dundee the match was held up due to a tennis ball protest alongside the message that the ball is in Celtic’s court.

At the Celtic AGM on November 17 chairman Ian Bankier refused to give any commitment for or against the senior policeman who is strongly linked to the enforcement of the Offensive Behaviour at Football Act which was repealed in 2018.

As the rest of the fans at the 2-1 win over Aberdeen dispersed after an acknowledgment from the team and Ange Postecoglou no one moved from the standing section which houses the Green Brigade.

Their chants and songs could be heard during the trackside post-match interviews with the focus firmly on Celtic to comment with the Green Brigade showing no sign of letting their protests fade away.
