"AND THEY GAVE US JAMES McGRORYand ... JOHN REID"

Well, no, they didn't, but whether we like it or not he's due to take over from Brian Quinn as Chairman of the club after the next AGM.

Some people want to do something about it. Read here about the man who will be representing Celtic's interests for the foreseeable future.

Personally I've always had a low opinion of John Reid, that didn't change when I learned he was an ardent Celtic fan since on a purely statistical basis a certain proportion of even Celtic fans will be unpleasant weasels, (there was one on the pitch last night in fact). But for them also to be an unpleasant 'professional' political weasel, without the scruples that God gave them is another thing.

To me John Reid has little to commend him and am disappointed that he's now to be officially associated with the club.

Or is he?

Read the petition to find what some people want to do about it.

And in the interests of fairness I'd like to point to a valid argument as to why he is a good candidate for the post but all I can gather from the pro John Reid supporters is that we should all just accept him for what he is now and ignore his past, afterall football is big business these days and his combative style will be good for us in disputes with the SFA and UEFA.

And anyway, lets all just get on with it and politics has no place in sport. Lets just stick to the issues that matter to us Glasgow football fans then, child abuse and religious issues.
