Celtic FC to do their bit for refugee crisis

CELTIC will donate their share of the proceeds from this Sunday’s Jock Stein memorial match to a charity helping those affected by Europe’s refugee crisis.

The match, which marks the 30th anniversary of the death of former Bhoys boss Stein, takes place at East End Park in Dunfermline with a kick-off time of 2pm, with Celtic and Dunfermline each to field a team of legends.

“Having seen the effects of this humanitarian crisis unfold, we felt as a club we should help in any way we can,” said Celtic's chief executive Peter Lawwell.

“Celtic was established as a football club to help people in need and this ethos remains a fundamental part of our club almost 130 years after our formation.

“None of us can understand the true horrors of this situation but as a club we wanted to show our support for those affected.”
