Hibs can quite reasonably object to the game going ahead

Celtic today had a 22 point gap open up, a player test positive, and have been informed all folk returning to Scotland from Dubai should self-isolate for 10 days.

I think, otherwise, the 10-in-a-row is going well.

Sky News there saying it *might* be an elite sport exemption, confirming. Not really been following this whole thing, but am I right in thinking that Celtic got a game moved for this pish in the first place, now Hibs are going to have it shifted again? If so that's fucking nonsense.

Complete and utter disgrace if this game goes ahead at all.  Celtic have taken a really, really, really dumb and unnecessary risk, they should therefore pay. 

Cancel the game and award Hibs the 3 points.  No way should we accept putting our players in harms way due to their complete negligence. No way should we accept a postponement either.

"The 10" is not as important as people's lives, not that your average green Weegie thicko would ever grasp that.

It's nice to see the walls closing in on them, but there's just no way you're convincing me that Celtic face any real consequences from this.

Best case scenario is the game being postponed tomorrow and Celtic getting a wee fine. The book should be fucking thrown at them, but it just won't be. Sorry to disappoint, lads.

There are absolutely no legitimate grounds for making Celtic exempt from a self isolation request given to every other group of passengers from a Covid-riddled country of origin: not least given that they have already recorded a positive Covid case in their squad. 

This is a test of the government's credibility. If they set some bullshit, magical rule for footballers and one for the rest of society then they can't complain if the public file all their restrictions in the bin.

Absolute disgrace.  Hibs should refuse to play this fixture.  They can feck right off.

Absolutely. His club is to blame for his predicament.

The SPFL should give Hibs the option to play this or not.

If they have concerns they should not be made to play.

Well technically Sky chose to move the game to Monday night and obviously Celtic had no way to influence that completely independent decision after Hibs objected to the initial request to move the game to monday.

The Dubai rules have only just kicked in (Tomrrow morning I think). The elite sport thing and this Dubai travel ban are not the same area.

The 10 isn't even relevant. The Celtic board's absolute tinpot mentality saw to that when they appointed Lennon 😂

If Celtic are able to field a team of registered players, then they should have to fulfil the fixture or lose the 3 points. It doesn't matter if these players are perma-bench warmers or youths. Tough shite.

Celtic to field an under 21 team but still win the match. Its the Hibs way.

Hibs really should be allowed to refuse to play this game. There are huge question marks over Celtic's "COVID security" here. It's happened in rugby recently where teams clearly were not following the rules, the opposition being forced to play, then finding themselves riddled with it a week later.

I suppose the problem is, if Hibs do refuse to play the game it's a get out for the SPFL, who can then go and punish Hibs.

Scottish Govt spokesperson: No decision yet on whether Celtic in clear under ‘elite sports’ qualification. Celtic being spoken to by officials from Scot Govt & NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde. Info will be fed back to Ministers who will make decision-possibly lunchtime tmrw @SkyNews

Seems to be a bit of confusion on whether Celtic are in the clear or not.
