Paul McBride QC joins Eddie this week and together they take a look back over the events of the past season. Paul explains his reasons for speaking out against the injustices the SFA appeared to be inflicting upon Celtic. He talks of Celtic's desire for a fair crack of the whip and his hopes for the coming season with regard to the SFA reforms. He takes us through his experiences following his decision to speak out and tells us whether or not he regrets his actions. Paul talks frankly about his friendship with Neil Lennon and tells us why he thinks the Celtic manager is singled out for a previously unheard of level of abuse. He gives us his opinion on the proposed legislation regarding sectarianism and tells us what he thinks will lead to prosecution under this new law. Paul gves his opinion regarding the internet, the part it plays in the abuse heaped upon Neil Lennon and just what the authorities can do to control it. On top of all this they still manage to find time to discuss football and Paul tells us of his experiences as a referee and what he hopes Celtic and Neil Lennon will achieve in the coming season.
