'Bigger and better' – Lawwell responds when asked if Celtic are subsidising Rangers

By John Reid

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has been involved in an interesting debate during the club’s AGM at Celtic Park today, regarding Celtic’s team bus.

During the Q&A session, a supporter ask Lawwell if Celtic would stop using Park’s of Hamilton bus company, as the company’s owners are major players at Celtic’s bitter rivals Rangers.

Lawwell responded to this by claiming, as quoted in the Scotsman, that Celtic are ‘bigger and better and above all that’, and that Celtic weren’t subsiding Rangers.

“It’s very difficult to find an alternative,” Lawwell said. 

“We could buy our own bus, but we would need two in case one breaks down.

“I don’t think we are subsidising Rangers, I think that’s a stretch. I think we’re bigger and better and above all that.”

The Hoops will be looking to increase their run of unbeaten games to 64, after setting a new British record of 63 in the 4-0 win over St Johnstone.

Brendan Rodgers’ side then face a daunting trip to Paris to play PSG next Wednesday in their penultimate Champions League group game.
