An infamous former Celtic casual has called out Tommy Robinson after the former EDL leader put out a reward to get the identification of a family member.
John O’Kane was the leader of The Celtic Soccer Crew in the late 80’s and early 90’s when the hooligan group were at their most active.
He has recently appeared in various documentaries about Old Firm violence including this on Vice.
He has called out the right wing rabble rouser with a Facebook post after hearing the Englishman had put out a reward to anyone who can name the boys in the now infamous Lee Rigby song video.
A group of Celtic fans filmed themselves singing an offensive song mocking the soldier’s murder at the hands of an Islamic extremist as ‘revenge’ for actions of the British Army abroad.
It turns out one of the Celtic fans in the video are related to O’Kane who has took offence to Robinson’s Twitter post and offer of a reward.
And he himself has put an offer to Robinson, himself also a former casual with Luton Town, to come to his house to discuss the matter.
He said he will give Robinson a choice of two phone numbers… his mammy or The Royal.
Tommy Robinson also got involved with Celtic fans in Sunderland, using his platform to goad supporters on Twitter before hiding out in a shop when trouble kicked off.
Celtic fans ambushed the shop with women and children inside by breaking windows and throwing a flare inside.
This angered a group of locals there to see Robinson and they started to fight with the Celtic fans.
One young Celtic fan ended up being hit with a baseball bat by one of Robinson’s gang.
Once the police arrived and most Celtic fans had disappeared Robinson appeared again and started to film the young boy lying unconscious.
He took specific delight in the fact the boy was lying on a Union Jack pillow with his Celtic top on.
On Twitter he described it as ‘proper nonce behaviour’.
