Chelsea is def the better team in every area on and off the pitch and should take the leg. I'm looking forward to watching Ibra play in an actual meaningful game again though.

Not only Rangers but Celtic has a litany of racist incidents
they havent mentioned the treatment of damarcus beasley, maurice edu.
Its such an embarassment to scotland i'm shocked you would have the balls to throw in some religious bigotry to boot.

I'm no expert or anything but it seems to me like just about every European soccer team has a certain number of fans who are awful racists.

Yes, growing up in the city, I grew to really dislike the Orange order and those of that persuasion.

You are right in that there are morons on both sides.

However, I found that the tendency towards more institutional, right wing values led to a greater percentage of those on the blue half of the divide.

I know this is a debate that will rage on for a long time yet, it's probably best we don't get too deep into it here.

Having lived in the front lines of this divide, having been the victim of unwarranted attack and having been discriminated against based on my name and the school I went to, it's an opinion not without merit.

Nothing personal to you either John, you seem like a well informed reasonable sort.

What a game between Celtic and Inter. Gifted them 2 goals, but still so exciting.

That crowd noise was deafening.

A friend of mine was at that game last night, said he ranked it as one of his top 3 sport watching experiences of all time purely for the crowd.

With regards to the Chelsea stuff earlier, I would say you and I come from opposite sides of the divide over here. I actually find it interesting that it's actually more vitriolic in Scotland than it is here in Northern Ireland now, especially focused around the Old Firm Celtic v rangers football.

Chelsea however are just a team I find absolutely abhorrent and it seems I'm far from the only one. Their fans are utter filth from my experience. As you say as well though, there is a definite link between Chelsea and Rangers (and indeed my local team in Northern Ireland, Linfield) which seems to bring a pretty horrible element out. I'd argue that the extremes on the Celtic side are as bad.

But the problem is that it exists at all, of course.

The question is when is FIFA/EUFA going to get serious about this stuff and start hitting teams where it hurts, like being banned from these tournaments for a year.

They should be punished for the flare incident, the fans themselves should also be policing this too.

I think playing behind closed doors would be appropriate should this happen again.

UEFA are toothless though, their pathetic handling of racist incidents shows that.

Also, setting off flares vs destroying a city akin to the bombing of the Luftwaffe.

Meanwhile on this side of the pond, the Montreal Impact score a goal in stoppage time to salvage a 1-1 draw vs Pachuca of Mexico tonight at the Big O. This leaves the teams tied 3-3 on aggregate, but the Impact advance to the semis of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League on the away goals rule. Their opponent will either be Alajuelense of Costa Rica or DC United. Alajuelense leads 5-2 after the 1st leg of that QF. 2nd leg goes tomorrow night in DC.

My team from Northern Ireland was fined 15,000 for the heinous crime of..... fans standing on a bit of ground behind one of the goals at a home European game.

So that's more than double what Celtic get fined for actual violence and crowd trouble. And they're repeat offenders.
