The Red Cross thanked Celtic FC for this help but this is what my club do, Celtic were formed in 1888 by Priest Brother Walfrid to feed the Irish immigrants entering Western Scotland from Ireland and escaping the London Political and Royal oppression. I have family who escaped so I know first hand the real and true effects any kind of oppression has on a people. Scotland is now the most devolved Country on Earth and is about to free herself from this evil Union of Westminster and Media liars. The abuse Celtic get is unfair because they give the most in charity Worldwide in terms of their fiscal standing as a Football Club. This is why I am utterly pleased to be a part of the Celtic Family, they are like no other. Home games fans bring 1000’s of bags of food for the rising food banks that will be closed in the coming years when Scotland stands alone. Celtic are a Scottish Club born through Irish roots, the Irish flag flies high above Celtic Park alongside the Scottish Saltire. We are a generous club and people. Well done Celtic FC AGAIN giving money most other clubs don’t give, the amounts we give are staggering, but as a wise man once said “Celtic are a club like no other” This wise man here…

CELTIC FC Foundation recently announced that its share of the proceeds from this weekend’s duo of Jock Stein 30th Anniversary events will be devoted to assisting those affected by the current refugee crisis. We are now delighted to confirm that our international aid charity partner will be the British Red Cross in Glasgow and, in particular, its Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal.
Desperate families have no choice but to risk their lives to flee war and persecution. They urgently need our help. Shocking images in the media over the last few days show desperate scenes of families who have lost their loved ones – families on a terrifying journey in search of safety. They need food, water and medical care. The Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal will support refugees and communities affected by the crisis across Europe, in neighbouring countries and the UK.
Tony Hamilton, CEO of Celtic FC Foundation said: “The British Red Cross is working tirelessly to provide direct aid to refugees across Europe who are in desperate need of our support, and it is an honour to partner with them on this occasion. “The funds raised on Sunday will have a huge impact on the ground, exactly where it’s needed most.”
Interim UK Director for the Red Cross, David Miller, said: “People are arriving in Europe with very little – some with only a family photo and the clothes they left in.
“We are in the midst of one of the biggest humanitarian disasters of our time. Millions of people are being forced to risk their lives in a desperate search for safety as conflicts rage around the world. “Celtic FC Foundation and their fans’ support will make a real difference to the refugees and communities affected across Europe and in neighbouring countries. Thank you for supporting the appeal.”
