Celtic targeted by ‘shameful’ Lazio banners including paedophile and potato famine digs.



‘Shameful’ Lazio banners, which included paedophile and potato famine barbs, have targeted Celtic.ADVANTAGES OF EXPLICIT LAUGUAGE: During last night’s Champions League match against Lazio, Celtic supporters were met at the Stadio Olimpico with xenophobic banners that social media users deemed “horrendous.”Several objectionable banners were prominently displayed by Lazio supporters during their Champions League victory over Celtic last night, prompting severe criticism.

By securing a 2-0 victory, the Serie A club advanced Celtic to the elimination round and condemned them to their fourth loss of the season. Lazio ultras, desiring to redress the ire of the approximately 3,000 Hoops supporters who traveled to Rome for the match, displayed banners that contained derogatory inscriptions such as “paedophilia” and “the potato famine,” alluding to the Irish heritage of Celtic.Another stated: “Did the Fenian b*****ds take [a] shower today?” . The following was printed in a second: “The famine has ended. One individual stated, “Go home, you f***ing potato eaters,” whereas another stated, “Celtic pedophile club.”Fans swiftly disseminated images of the banners, which were observed in flight both prior to and throughout the game, on social media, where they were deemed “reprehensible” and “repulsive.” One X user commented, “This is truly deplorable to see.”A different individual lamented: “Absolutely shameful, UEFA should look into this and punish them.” “There would be outrage if this were directed at any other group,” said a third. The subject is abhorrent.


Is it permissible for football supporters to exhibit provocative banners? Inform us in the section labeled “Comments” below.This season, Celtic supporters have found themselves in hot water for flying inappropriate banners. An indication of support for the actions of Islamic militant group Hamas was suggested by the presence of flying flags in the home section of Celtic Park during their match against Kilmarnock on October 7. One of the flags read “Victory for the Resistance” in reference to the attack that occurred in Israel on October 7.


Additionally, earlier this month, they were penalized for violating UEFA’s prohibitions on political messages by flying Palestinian flags during their Champions League match against Atletico Madrid.Lazio, who are currently under the management of former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, secured a 2-0 victory through Ciro Immobile’s two goals in the 82nd and 85th minutes, respectively. They narrow the gap to one point over group leaders Atletico Madrid headed into the final round of matches with the victory. Celtic, on the other hand, have earned exactly one point from their first five matches of the season.
