MO Johnstonturned Scottish football on its head when he sensationally snubbed Celtic to join Rangers in July 1989Gers' first high-profile Catholic signing in the modern era made nationwide headlines. But Terry Butcherhas revealed how Johnston was initially treated as an outcast by some of his Scottish team-mates at Ibrox.
And Rangers kitman Jimmy Bel, made sure he got the message, refusing to leave Mo's training kit outside his hotel door at their Italian pre-season base, as he did with other players.
Former club captain Tel explains in his autobiography: "It was, as far as I was concerned, a fabulous signing for the club because Mo was such a good player, while Souness had achieved his ambition of beginning to break down the sectarian barriers at Ibrox.
"Our only doubt was we knew Mo was fiercely proud of being a Celtic fan and we wondered how he would settle. We need not have worried - he was terrific.
"Next day, the club wanted the Scottish and English players to hold a press conference to tell the media what a good signing he was.
"There was no problem as far as Ray Wilkins, Chris Woods, Mark Walters, I and some others were concerned. But the Scottish players - Davie Cooper, Ian Ferguson, Ally McCoist, John Brown and the rest - declined because they had received so many calls from friends telling them not to become involved.
"Jimmy Bell didn't want to become involved at all.
"Mo roomed with Ally McCoist, as he had done for the national team, and it was Jimmy's practice to put fresh kit outside everyone's room for the next day.
"But he refused to do so for Mo, just leaving Ally's, forcing Mo to go down three flights of stairs to the kit room to fetch his gear.
"Mo did so stoicallyand without complaint. In fact, in the end he made a joke about it.
"But this was a complete upheaval for the club. Even at meal-times there were a number of Scots who would not sit with him.
"What had happened to the moral high ground claimed by Rangers?
"They always used to say it was Celtic who were intolerant and unable to cope with the mixing of religions. Wrong.
"There were no such difficulties for the English players, of course.
"All we knew was that we had signed a good player who was going to help us retain our title

To the Rangers fans: "Stay and vomit in your own home, urinate in the corner of your own sitting room, fight with your own neighbours Celtic (who deserve a medal for putting up with you) and foul the streets of Glasgow. Don't come back to Barcelona, you're an embarrassment. And while we're at it, don't play in the Champions League. You're not up to scratch, either on a sporting or human level.
There are noisy supports who, even though they drink large quantities of beer, make friends. Not you lot, because you turn everywhere you go into dumps. You are undesirables."

"The wife of a Rangers Supporters Club secretary from East Kilbride declared that she had been suffering from insomnia as a result of disturbing religious visions involving Johnston: My blood is boiling. Is Mo Johnston going to run about Ibrox with his crucifix? Ive though about nothing else all night. David Miller, General Secretary of the Rangers Supporters Association was peddling an equally hard line: I never thought in my wildest dreams that they would sign him. Why him above all? Its a sad day for Rangers. There will be a lot of people handing in their season tickets. I dont want to see a Roman Catholic at Ibrox. Rangers have always stood for one thing and the biggest majority of the support have been brought up with the idea of a true blue Rangers team. I thought they would sign a Catholic eventually, perhaps in three or four years time, but someone from the continent.

It was not until the 1960s that the burning issue of sectarianism reared its ugly head at Ibrox. A former player, Ralph Brand, made the sectarian policy at Rangers public knowledge and around this time the behaviour of Rangers fans was a real problem for the club. In 1963, Rangers fans jeered during the minutes silence for assassinated Catholic U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Then, in 1967, then vice Chairman Matt Taylor was questioned about Rangers no Catholics policy and he stated that he felt that they policy was part of our tradition....we were formed in 1873 as a Protestant boys club. To change now would lose us considerable support.

My morning commute is dreadful, and frankly, it's down to people who have an attitude like you.

sellick fans are scum to a man always have been always will be. Honestly think I'd crack a stauner if a stand housing them collapsed.

Why do Celtic fans bury their heads in the sand to the fact that their club achieves its success by creating and exploiting sectarianism?

You don't use a full stop before a question mark by the way.

Are you lot still crying about that? There's been many Catholics who have played for Rangers in recent years, get over it.

Indeed.

Why do Celtic fans fail to acknowledge that Celtic was set up on a sectarian premise and only fears of being uncompetitive prompted the club to abandon a Catholic-only signing policy.

Why do Celtic not allow Protestants on their board? I'm sure big Jock wasn't allowed on to the board for this reason also.

So why aren't Protestants allowed on the board at Celtic though? Jock Stein wasn't allowed on the board because he was Protestant.

Why don't you write to Celtic director Brian Wilson (Protestant) and ask him why? Posted Image

Or you could read the book that he wrote - Celtic's official centenary history (Celtic, A Century With Honour, Collins Willow 1988)

"Jock, if there were two players, one Catholic and one Protestant. Who would you sign?"
"The Protestant"
"Why?"
"Because I know that Rangers would never sign the Catholic"

There seems to be some notion among bigots that Stein wasn't invited to be on the Celtic board. When the fact is - He TURNED DOWN the opportunity as he wanted to manage another team and continue his coaching career. Idiots (bigots). Posted Image

I do chuckle to myself when I think that the mighty Rangers (European Cups: zero) would have turned down Pele, Garrincha, Maradona, Eusebio, di Stefano and Platini in their prime because those players believed in Transubstantiation.

Eh, lies.

He turned down the opportunity to manage Celtic pools.

Out of interest, prior to Jock Stein, how many Protestant managers had Celtic had in their history?

From 1897 - 1965, Celtic only had 3 managers over the period of 68 years. What religion either of the 3 were before Stein is only important to bigots. Personally i neither know or care what religion any of the 3 were. Posted Image

Ah, one of my favourite myths

Quick question, why would he be invited onto the board? How many clubs then and now practice this tradition of inviting the manager onto the board?

Celtic at the time like most clubs were owned by individual and families, It make no sense for the Kellys to invite Jock onto the board, and i'm glad he didnt. otherwise he wouldnt have got Scotland into the WC finals.
