On Wednesday evening a number of claims were made on social media that the appointment of Bernard Higgins to a senior security role at Celtic has been ditched.

Tellingly the decision appears to have been made by Higgins rather than the Celtic board who have a long record of indecision and failing to read the room.

Even the most head-strong character would be able to judge that the sustained, organised vocal and visual opposition mobilised by fans made his task of dealing with Celtic fans impossible,

Since the home match against Livingston on October 30 started with a half hour of silence from the Green Brigade the campaign opposing the appointment has grown momentum.

Banners and chants have been heard at every match since with a complete silence planned for tonight’s match against Real Betis and on Sunday against Motherwell.

Having dug their heels in so firmly it is unlikely that the men who placed their total backing in Peter Lawwell and Neil Lennon will go public with a climb-down even though it would give the stadium the biggest lift since Jock Brown’s departure was announced before a match against Dundee in November 1998.

Since the appointment of Brendan Rodgers on the eve of the 2016 Scottish Cup Final the Celtic board have shown horrendous judgement and news management- it is unlikely that that is about to change.
