    Celtic & Rangers urged to cut ties with e-cigarettes

    The British Medical Association is starting to embarrass itself ..........


    MEDICAL leaders have urged Celtic and Rangers football clubs to reconsider their links with an electronic cigarettes company amid concerns that it will damage efforts to reduce smoking.

    Last month the E-lites brand announced it had become partners with Celtic, allowing its products to be sold at the stadium and smoked in designated areas. A similar link-up with Rangers was revealed shortly afterwards.But the British Medical Association’s board of science has now written to the Glasgow clubs raising their fears over the impact of allowing the products to be sold and used on their grounds.

    Woah! Slow up buttercup, what was that again? A product which is reducing the number of people smoking is damaging efforts to, err, reduce smoking?

    In the BMA’s letter, Dr Andrew Thomson, a GP in Angus, said sport was a health activity and clubs such as Celtic and Rangers “should be leading by example to encourage healthy living rather than advertising a smoking product, which contains the addictive substance nicotine”.

    The BMA’s call was welcomed by campaign group Action on Smoking and Health (Ash) Scotland.

    Chief executive Sheila Duffy said: “There is a real concern that seeing people behaving as if they are smoking by using electronic cigarettes could normalise smoking."
