What the world is waiting for?

Official Celtic Statement:
AFTER recent events involving the match at Tannadice, and yesterday’s SFA statement, Celtic have issued the following statement.

Celtic Chairman John Reid said: “Following events at Tannadice, it was Celtic's absolute right to request clarification on a matter of this nature. Indeed, it is widely accepted that this was an incident which deserved some explanation.

“It was also correct that the Scottish Football Association conduct an investigation into events following the resignation of an assistant referee. Clearly, as a result of this investigation it is very unfortunate that dishonesty has been proven. This, of course, is a matter for the SFA to deal with.

“However, we are encouraged by the proposals of the new Chief Executive Stewart Regan, to address a series of issues within the SFA and to allow greater transparency and openness in all future decision making. While we would have liked a review to be more independent in nature, Stewart Regan's objectives are to be applauded.

“We fully understand that there is intense pressure on referees in a high-profile environment. We know too that they carry out a very difficult job.

“We now look forward to the review process being carried out and to the implementation of the appropriate recommendations."
Official The View From Paradise Statement:You've just given them carte blanche to carry on cheating.
