Yes, the supporters' group certainly improved the atmopshere at Parkhead - when they concentrated on getting behind the team.
At times at home games it had been a bit flat so it was no bad thing. But, in recent times, the Green Brigade got too political. Ultimately, they determined their own fate.
There is nothing wrong, of course, with holding strong political views. But a football match is not the place to air them. They have now either been banned or dispersed to different parts of the stadium by Celtic.
I have no doubt Hoops fans will continue to turn up to matches in large numbers and support their team.
I personally don't differentiate between fans. Yes, some maybe shout louder than others. But they are all supporters.
When I was a player at Celtic, there were no individual fans' groups and there were no problems with the noise the crowd generated. In fact, the supporters in the old Jungle created a far greater atmosphere than the Green Brigade ever did. If the Jungle got behind you then you knew you were going to make it as a player!
I am sure the Celtic team will survive the members of the Green Brigade being moved to other areas of the ground and will continue to receive the fans' backing.
