A statement from the group read: “The club have confirmed their plans to hold a minute’s silence to mark ‘Remembrance Day’ ahead of the game against Ross County this afternoon.

“It is not our intention to break the silence. Instead, we will remain in the concourse while it takes place. We would ask all fans who stand in our section behind our banner to join us in this, and invite all the Celts. fans who feel the same as us to also stay on the esplanade”.
