    Thanks for the video. Could you do me a favour and switch your style to the default one and try? That way I'll be able to work out if it's on our side or not.

    I jump through a lot of hoops to try and watch Celtic games, some matches are no on telly so I watch the online streams and for most of these steams you have to click through ads with fannies beaming out at you, but it's only two or three and a lot less ads than on this site. Now to this point most of the ads is just * from Amazon or clothes, the like. But .Zander.'s post illustrates that the site's not above directing pure fannies at its users.

    I'm having the exact same issue. Also the amount of ads popping up and causing the page to lag is starting to do my head in.

    Its even worse if i try to read news stories as i only get a 3rd of the screen showing from middle of screen to left side.
    Using ad blocker doesnt change it as instead of ads it is just blank screen were ads were.

    I'd highly advise changing style to the default one, as a lot of the other ones are now outdated.

    Thanks for suggesting that. I can also now see the talkceltic news articles posted on here instead of half the screen.
