Thought and prayers to all those affected.
CELTIC Football Club has today written to the Queensland Premier and the Celtic supporters’ club in Brisbane to express its sincere sympathy following the tragic flooding there.
The club enjoys magnificent support in Australia and was delighted to visit the country in 2009 to play against The Brisbane Roar.
During the visit, the club's management and players met Anna Bligh, the Queensland Premier, and thousands of supporters and members of the public who welcomed the club so warmly.
Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: "On behalf of everyone connected with Celtic, we would like to extend our sincere sympathies to the people of Australia following the devastating floods which have hit the country.
“In particular the people of Brisbane and its surrounding areas have been severely affected in recent days and our thoughts, of course, go out to everyone there.
“In 2009 the club was delighted to visit Brisbane on a pre-season tour. The welcome we received from everyone in the city was overwhelming and we hope to have a lasting connection with the city.
“The warmth of spirit of the Queensland people was very evident and we know that their spirit and strength will be crucial in pulling everyone there through this extremely difficult time.
"Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with the people of Australia at a very difficult time.”
The shirts worn by Celtic in the next home match against Aberdeen on January 22 will be signed by the players to raise funds for the flood appeal.
For those who want to help and also get an experience as well........
My thoughts are with everyone throughout Australia who has been affected by these floods which have hit 5 states. I hope everyone on this board are safe and well and havn't been affected too much.
