Referee saga - Celtic have gone too far

The behaviour of Lennon is juvenile and embarrassing but this only this reflected his lack of maturity and unveiled the slow revelation that he is not up to the job. What was worse was the unwise announcement by John Reid who forgot that he was representing a great club and instead took us down into the mire of the long dead sectarianism of a previous Scottish society. He failed to see that attacking and libelling a long standing referee of good account and the whole upstanding fabric of the Scottish game would only paint the club in a poor light. We simply can't handle defeat and this type of blaming others to camouflage our own faults can only further ruin our reputation.

What was worse though was the giving of encouragement to those within our support (probably the majority thereof) who would seek to do harm to those referees and their families who have the temerity to give a decision against Celtic. But then of course we just like to stone referees like Mr Dallas - did we not do a good enough job the first time? This is probably one of the most disgraceful episodes in the club's history. It ranks up there with the injudicious removal of Tony Mowbray when the man was just bringing the team to greatness.

Or have I got this all wrong?
