  1. rangers are the british club.Celtic was founded by an Irish missionary brother,to raise money to feed the victims of British bigotry. The flags of many nations fly at Celtic Park but the Union Jack is considered to be a flag of shame

  2. you sad bunch of bigots, are Celtic a club playing in Britain? yes, then their british. How long ago was the famine etc? that chip on your shoulder must be heavy after all this time, grow up!!!

  3. The last time I checked, Celtic was in Glasgow, which is part of Scotland, which is inside Great Britain.

    I’m Welsh and I don’t get offended if someone calls me British.
