Horrible People Beat Up A Dog For Wearing The Wrong Soccer Jersey

No, yeah, this is a totally reasonable thing to do. Of course it's the Old Firm.

According to the Scottish Sun, Magic, a Boxer who doesn't go anywhere without her Celtic strip, was assaulted by two men (presumably Rangers fans) on a Glasgow bus home from the pub Sunday night.

Stephen said: “They just went for her, they didn’t hesitate.

“The second they got on, one of them started laying into her.They kicked her in the face and she gave out this yelp. The bus fell into silence. No one was expecting it so we were all stunned. Stephen added: “Magic is my first ever pet and I love her to bits, so thinking about it sends chills down my spine.”

Web designer Stephen told how he stood up for his pet in face of the violent onslaught and argued with the yobs.

And after the bus driver heard the bust-up, he kicked the pair off. But Stephen told how the men continued to abuse him and Magic from the roadside — trying to goad him into a fight by shouting: “Come on, you Fenian bastard and bring your Fenian dog with you.”

He added: “They called me a Fenian bastard, which is one thing, but then they called Magic a Fenian as well. What kind of person does that?"


The Celtic-Rangers rivalry is inextricable from religious and sectarian tensions, and as such, Scottish police are treating the attack as a hate crime.
