Having to play with a weakened team is the very least punishment they should receive for their selfish, arrogant, dangerous and ill considered trip.

As usual though, when it comes to the Old Firm, the football authorities will almost certainly bottle it.

The arrogance of Celtic in letting the trip go ahead last week defies belief.

I agree that playing the game with a weakened side means they have got off lightly, and what confidence can there be that there are not other players who should be isolating given they were all together last week in Dubai?

They should have points deducted and given a large fine that can be used to let lower league teams pay for their testing.

The First Minister said today that any actions against Celtic were a matter for the football authorities.  It is appropriate that the football authorities should take action here, but why is it solely down to them?  In general, people are exempt from staying at home if they are unable to work from home and the exemptions specifically stipulate that training for professional sport is included in that.  But the new law also states that travel should be as close to home as possible.  Surely nobody believes that the trip to Dubai was essential and therefore they should be facing prosecution.
