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!
