Think about the fans - Lawwell

02 April 2011 01:30
Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has called for fans to be considered more when it comes to kick-off times after the game at Inverness was postponed at short notice. A waterlogged pitch at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium forced the Clydesdale Bank Premier League fixture to be called off less than two hours before the scheduled noon kick-off. It is the second time this season a Celtic game at Inverness has been called off - a 340-mile round trip from Glasgow - and Lawwell believes it is time to put fans first. "Inverness are a great community club and George Fraser (chairman), Graeme Bennett (director of football) and the rest of the board always make us and our supporters feel very welcome, so it is a difficult situation, but clearly there is something wrong with the drainage of the pitch here," Lawwell told Celtic's official website. "I have great sympathy for our supporters who were already on their way here and we can only apologise to them. "We value their support and they do need to be considered when it comes to setting kick-off times, otherwise they are going to end up saying `Enough is enough' if they're being asked to travel to games such as Inverness with a midday kick-off time.`
