The collective of Celtic fan groups have called on Michael Nicholson to meet with them to discuss the possible appointment of Bernard Higgins to a security role at the club.
After more than a month of high profile but legal protests the acting Celtic CEO has refused to speak to the fans with over 250 different groups signing an open letter to Nicholson and the Celtic board.
Celtic employ a Supporter Liaison Officer and hold quarterly ‘fan forums’ but these appear to be box ticking exercises for the benefit of UEFA rather anything meaningful or a genuine attempt to engage with supporters.

Thursday’s Europa League tie against Real Betis was played in front of a fairly quiet and respectful crowd despite the five goals shared.
There were a few attempts at chanting that never quite took off with a repeat on the cards for tomorrow’s match against Motherwell with no sign of acknowledgement never mind dialogue or discussion coming from the club hierarchy.
