No word yet on TV coverage for the Everton versus Real Salt Lake friendly (which just so happens to be on the same night as the LA Galaxy v Chelsea match), and no word on TV coverage also for the Aston Villa against Columbus Crew friendly scheduled for Saturday, July 28.

    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

    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.
