Eddie Toner joins More than 90 Minutes, Editor Andrew Milne on the latest Talk from the Terrace to discuss Celtic’s recent season book announcement and the reaction throughout the Celtic Support since.
Eddie was born in the shadow of Celtic Park and has never lived more than walking distance away from Paradise. His family are steeped in the history of Celtic, his grandfather was the Celtic Park groundsman and he spent many a day in and around the old ground meeting the likes of Jock Stein and Billy McNeill as he played around the stadium.
Match day is a family affair where generations gather in the Main Stand where he sits in between his Mam and Sister. He is the former General Secretary of the Celtic Supporters Association and ever present at home and away games following Celtic but he has come to a cross roads in his Celtic supporting life and is wrestling with the unthinkable idea of giving up his season book as he feels so disconnected with those running OUR club.
Having witnessed two 9IAR’s and a Quadruple Treble along with the bad times in the 1990’s this is a sad state of affairs when those running the club are driving a wedge not only between themselves and the average Celtic fan on the street but a quick look on social media will tell you that they continue to divide the Celtic Support. At the moment the club we all love sadly does not resemble the community club it was set up for.
