Celtic have dismissed comments made by Charles Green as 'not worthy of any response' after the Rangers chief executive claimed bigotry was one of the reasons for his club being denied entry to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

SPL clubs voted against Green`s newco being admitted to Scottish football's top-flight earlier this month, before Scottish Football League sides voted in favour of the Glasgow giants playing in the Irn-Bru Third Division, rather than Division One.

Green made the remarks in an interview on Sunday and a spokesperson for Celtic Football Club said: "These comments are not worthy of any response from Celtic Football Club. We presume the matter would now be one for the Scottish Football Association and the Scottish Football League to deal with."
