Celtic closes down Green Brigade

Scottish champions Celtic have closed down supporters group 'The Green Brigade'.

The Hoops have taken action after concerns were made known by the Safety Advisory Group regarding the section of Celtic Park which houses the aforementioned fan group.

The decision comes after Celtic were charged by UEFA over the use of fireworks during their Champions League qualifier against Cliftonville last month.

The Green Brigade were deeply dissatisfied to hear of the decision: "The Green Brigade are disappointed to announce our section in 111 is to be closed by Celtic Football Club.

"Pathetically, this is due to 'lateral movement' which has been deemed 'unsafe' by the club's directors.

"Our group and section has continually made concessions and strived to be co-operative with the club over various safety concerns so we are left dismayed that such drastic and immediate action has been taken over such a trivial and harmless movement.

"The group is currently seeking legal advice and will consult with those in our section over the coming days."
