CEO Clarifies Claim That Celtic Are Subsidising Rangers Over Team Bus Choice

CEO Clarifies Claim That Celtic Are Subsidising Rangers Over Team Bus Choice
By Gavin Cooney

The Celtic AGM took place today, with Chief Executive Peter Lawwell showering Brendan Rodgers in praise, saying that he would not swap him for any other manager in the world. Rodgers, for his part, crooned that he hoped to be in situ for a tenth title in a row. So with Celtic having eclipsed their own, 63-match unbeaten run, all is rosy at Celtic Park.

That said, Lawwell did face a couple of critical questions, with one from the floor saying asking "why are you continuing to subsidise that club across the water?”.

This refers to Rangers, and Celtic's choice of team bus. Celtic rent a bus from a company called Park's of Hamilton, which is is the family firm of Rangers directors Douglas and Graeme Park. Lawwell rejected the idea that this constituted subsidising of Rangers:

We have talked about that but I think as a club like Celtic we have to be above all that.

It’s very difficult to find an alternative. We could buy our own bus, but we would need two in case one breaks down. “I don’t think we are subsidising Rangers, I think that’s a stretch. I think we’re bigger and better and above all that.

[The Scotsman]
