We have finally reached the end of the season, officially the end of the season, our season ended weeks ago when we were put out the cup.
A season that many will quickly want to forget, a season when the club imploded, fans protested, the board called us entitled, the players downed tools, all this when it should have been a historical year for Celtic.
What we have learned this year is how those running the club view the fans. We are customers, just there to keep providing funds, buying three strips a year, buying season tickets despite not being allowed in the stadium. No added value. When I first got my season ticket we had a rail pass which as a 16/17 year old made it a lot easier to get to the games. Could they not offer such incentives going forward? Could a season ticket not gain you access to the ladies games, or the Colts in the Lowland League? I feel Celtic need to offer something given season ticket holders have paid to watch on a bad streaming service.
The game against Hibs at Easter Road will see club captain Scott Brown play his last game before the move to Aberdeen. Brown may have faded this season on the pitch but there can be no denying how important Brown has been since joining from Hibs. He has become one of the most decorated Celtic players and we could see him back at Celtic Park someday in the future in a coaching capacity.
It will be strange when we see Brown run out next season in the colours of Aberdeen. We wish him well in the next stage of his career.
Mick Kane hails from Glasgow. He has been hooked on Celtic since he went to his first game when he was 7. Celtic beat Hamilton 8-3 at Celtic Park on the 3rd of January 1987. His favourite player at the time, Brian McClair scored four goals.
He started going regular as a 16 year old when Celtic played at Hampden for the season, being a Southsider it meant a short train journey to get to Hampden. From then he has had a season ticket travelled around Europe for games as Celtic became the dominant force in Scottish football again. A nice change from growing up during Rangers run to 9 in a row.
