Celtic tweet support of Ireland, get abused, so tweet support of Scotland, get abused

Playing is safe


Time for diplomacy.

Pretty much everyone in Ireland was focussed on the same thing on Thursdayt – a result for Martin O’Neill’s Boys in Green against Germany, and Poland taking at least a point from Hampden Park against Scotland.

Meanwhile everyone in Scotland was focussed on pretty much the exact opposite as realistically it was a straightforward battle between O’Neill’s side and Gordon Strachan’s Scots for third place in Group D which would secure a play-off spot.

Celtic’s official Twitter account spent the day wishing their players well on international duty tonight.

They then decided to wish Ireland well in Thursday’s game against the world champions at the Aviva…

It didn’t go down well with everyone…

No, not happy at all…

So they tried to make amends, over an hour later, by once again wishing the Scots the best of luck against Poland…

But even that didn’t please some people. Damned if you do…

As it turned out it was only Ireland who could secure three points – Scotland’s draw with Poland means they are out of the running which will leave some of these people pretty angry. Or angrier.
