    Hello everybody, thanks for having me! Long time observer, first time poster.

    I started following Celtic around 15 years ago, I'm a Stoke fan by birth. Following Celtic where I'm from is rare. Rangers are often people's second team.

    As soon as I was old enough to know my own mind I realised I despised everything about those who followed Rangers. To a man they were uneducated right-wing bigots. Sadly, a lot of these people also follow Stoke, often bringing shame onto our great club.

    I tried to educate myself on what these people believed and that's how I found Celtic.

    It's terrible that I came to Celtic through my hatred of Rangers but that's how it happened. I instantly fell in love with the hoops, the fans, the traditions and the club. I'm a proud Socialist and was delighted to find club and fan base that echoed my beliefs.

    Anyway, that's how I came to find Celtic, since then it's been more about the football and I've had some great times following the club from afar.

    Hopefully this will be the season when I get to finally experience my first game at Paradise.

    Mon the hoops!

    Welcome along and don’t be a stranger. If your not inherent of the hoops and find them for yourself then it is a great find. We have many opinions on many things and not always in agreement but we work as a fan base. Good to see like minded fans from down south take an interest and you should get up to Celtic Pk when you get the chance. You will find us very welcoming and friendly toward any Celtic fan.
