Rain­bow laces for Celtic stars

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

CELTIC play­ers will wear rain­bow coloured laces dur­ing matches as part of a cam­paign to make LGBT play­ers and fans feel com­fort­able at games.

The Rain­bow Laces cam­paign aims to raise aware­ness of anti-LGBT abuse by ask­ing clubs to show their sup­port for the LGBT com­mu­nity.

Celtic cap­tain Scott Brown helped to pro­mote the cam­paign, which he said ad­dressed a “very im­por­tant is­sue which needs to be tack­led”, and said he was de­lighted the club was tak­ing part.

The SPFL, Scot­tish FA and a num­ber of clubs in­clud­ing Aberdeen and Hiber­nian have signed up to this year’s cam­paign.

Rangers had ear­lier an­nounced their play­ers would also take part.
