Same Old Firm

I watched the Panorama programme on Sunday night about the sectarianism in Old Firm games and I must say the hatred and bigotry on show was certainly disturbing.Celtic fans were shown singing Irish rebel songs while Rangers fans sang about "Fenian blood" and made Nazi salutes.

From watching the programme,I got the impression that no one really expected these bigoted attitudes to ever change and it does seem to be too ingrained on the psyches of both sides.

I have never been to an Old Firm game and this programme was not a great advertisement for the fixture!
