According to the Celtic Wiki... A Tim is simply a Celtic supporter, and is a regular self-referential term used by Celtic supporters. It generally now is used by most fans of other clubs to simply mean a Celtic fan, and has increasingly little (if anything) to do with your religion at all.

Yeah but black men in USA use the N word to refer to each other.

Would you use that word?

The N word is a derogatory term for black people so no I don't use it. I no longer use the word tims because some folk seem to dislike it but as far as I'm concerned calling Celtic fans tims is no worse than calling Aberdeen fans sheep.

I take it from your post that you think tims is a derogatory word used for all catholics. My family are catholic and I've never seen it used that way.

Tims was taken from Tim Malloys. Hence you're throwing a catholic 'slang' at a group of non denominational football supporters.

The 'N' word isn't derogatory at all, although it has been adapted to be. Its origins lay in the Latin for 'colour black'.
