Brendan Rodgers condemned the speculation that some groups of Celtic fans are racist. This came following the interview in the Evening Press claiming that Aberdeen right-back Logan is expecting the Scottish Champions supporters to use foul languages against him.
The 30-year-old former Manchester City was involved in a highly tensed game at the Parkhead, where his club Aberdeen won Celtic 1-0. However, the 30-year-old Aberdeen defender received his matching order following a heated argument with two Celtic players Mikael Lusting and Dedryck Boyata.
Despite seeing red, Logan was seen celebrating in front of the home fans while leaving the field as some sections of the fans were throwing abuses at him. This has been in the picture for a very long time between the player and Celtic fans, meanwhile former Celtic player Aleksandar Tonev was banned for seven matches after he reportedly used racial words on Logan in a game between Aberdeen and Celtic back in 2014, this led some Scottish fans targeting Logan ever since.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, while responding to Logan’s comments, said “It’s not something that we would ever want to see anywhere. There has always been an ongoing thing with young Shay since an incident I was made aware of when I came in. But the Celtic supporters were voted the best supporters in the world. I think that says it all in terms of the ambience around the stadium and how they behave themselves. It’s not something we want to go into and it’s not something the Celtic supporters are ever talked about or renowned for. It’s a wonderful atmosphere at Celtic Park, of course, and you probably don’t help yourself if you walk about after the game and do all sorts of gestures. The Celtic supporters have been given a title last year and there is a reason why”.
Although it’s yet to be seen how the Celtic fans will react when Logan and his Aberdeen team visits Parkhead this season.
