That this House congratulates Celtic Football Club on its participation in this year's Amnesty International Football Welcomes campaign; recognises that the campaign, now in its third year, highlights the role of refugee players in UK football and the important part football clubs can play in welcoming refugees and people seeking asylum into their local communities, and in helping them settle into a new country and culture; commends Celtic Football Club for offering free tickets and stadium tours to refugees and people seeking asylum living locally; applauds Amnesty International for their excellent initiative; and thanks all other clubs taking part in this year's campaign for their participation.
