Ard, "Celtic fans sporting in defeat"! You've obviously never been in a Celtic pub in Partick (Glasgow)after a loss to Rangers! (Though it's been some time since the last one!)                        

Generally though, the behaviour of Scottish fans abroad has been much improved in recent years. Wembley '78 was quite a while back. Now the Tartan Army pride themselves on their camaraderie, etc, with rival fans, friends. I think the difference between the Scottish and the English fans is that the Scots don't consider themselves to be racially and culturally superior to everyone they play.
