Celtic fans display Palestinian flags at Champions League match

A Celtic fans’ group displayed Palestinian flags at a UEFA Champions League match against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, despite an appeal by the Scottish club.

The Green Brigade previously announced that they would show their support for Palestine by displaying its flag at Wednesday's game.


They have already been banned by the club from attending its away matches after displaying the flags at several games.


In a message to supporters ahead of Wednesday’s match, the players and coaching staff from both sides said they would wear black armbands "as a show of respect and support for all those affected by the conflict.”


Gaza’s 2.3 million people have been running out of food, water, medicines and fuel, and recent aid convoys allowed into Gaza have carried only a fraction of what is needed.
