By Michelle Duffy     Mar 9, 2007 in Sports
When we live in a world which, at times, is dominated by the harsh realities of football hooliganism, it is no wonder that when a crowd of supporters are well behaved - they get praised.
Celtic supporters have been undoubtedly praised for their good manners in Milan by the police before, during and after the game so much, the team are proud of them.
Last minute changes to the entrances to the San Siro Stadium meant that organisers feared the approaching crowd would let off some trouble, but no, on entering the vast building, everything, it was reported, went smoothly.
The fans of the team were so well behaved, that the Milan police, and the British Consulate approached the team personally and congratulated them for having such a wonderful, respectful crowd.
The fans, who had shown their unconditional love for their team, even clapped and cheered the players even though they had lost the game.
The Superintendent of Strathclyde police, Alex McAllister had even flown over to negotiate with the Milan police in case of any impending trouble had said, "The behaviour of the Celtic support in Milan was first-class."
On a tragic note, one of Celtic's supporters, Raymond Donnelly died in Milan on Tuesday night, a message of condolence appears on the clubs website to his friends and family.
