Celtic had no option but to ban Green Brigade

IT WILL be very interesting to see what kind of atmosphere will be generated at Celtic Park tomorrow.

Celtic supporters will have to get behind the team after the Green Brigade being disbanded

On the back of the defeat in Barcelona, and with the Green Brigade disbanded, the onus will be on everyone else going along to really get behind the team.

I am sure they will. Remember, there were terrific supporters before the Green Brigade was ever heard of, and I am confident they will continue to be great supporters in the future.

They have, perhaps, lost some of their voices as they have been prepared to sit back and allow the Green Brigade to lead the way in terms of creating an atmosphere.

But, I have already made it clear I believe the club had no option but to take the action they did after the events at Motherwell last week.

Misbehave, and you have to expect to be punished.

The club's reputation is more important than any particular group of individuals.

It's very difficult to say how many fans will turn up tomorrow.

But, the players have to make sure they give them something to shout about.

The best way to achieve this is to start in a positive, attacking manner, with a high tempo which takes the game to Hibs from the off.
