When did Celtic first sign their current deal with New Balance?

On seeing what English’s tweet said, many Celtic fans were angry. Some of them said that Doncaster said the right things and he did the right thing too.

Is Tom English biased against Celtic?

Of course he is

Of course he is

I don't think so

I don't think so

This happened after English had criticised SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan for not making himself ‘available to journalists’ and gave him stick for conducting a question and answer session ‘with himself’.

What do we think?

BBC later released the whole set of questions that had been posed to Doncaster in the Sportsound interview that English was talking about in his tweet. The Q&A includes Doncaster talking about a variety of issues and it shows that he did make himself available for a lot of questions.

In that sense, one can see why Celtic fans have slammed English for his tweet. The fact that Doncaster even addressed a question about English’s ‘story about loan payments’ shows that the interview was a rather transparent one.
