'We are Celtic supporters': questions of football and identity in modern Scotland


Game without frontiers: football, identity and modernity: 73-101
'We are Celtic supporters': questions of football and identity in modern Scotland
This paper is concerned with the role that football plays in the constitution and reconstitution of specific cultural and ethnic identities. It examines whether football clubs are important cultural institutions which provide a focus around which specific identities are actively shaped, and whether this process is helping to shape wider cultural agendas that enjoy prominence within local, regional or national spaces.
