Fans' Remembrance Day insult

A REMEMBRANCE Day tribute before Scotland's top football match yesterday afternoon was marred by chanting and singing by fans.

The Scotsman believes that Sky Sports, which broadcast the SPL match between Falkirk and Celtic, was forced to adjust the sound levels during the live broadcast.

A source said: "People do swear or sing inappropriate songs during matches and judgments have to be made whether it is appropriate to broadcast it. In this case a decision must have been made to bring the sound levels down."

A Falkirk season ticket holder said: "The fans inside the ground stood in silence. But the away end was only half full before the kick-off and there was singing and chanting outside the ground."

No-one from either club was available for comment last night.
