The news, that had been rumored for weeks, that Islam Feruz – lazily dubbed “The Scottish Wayne Rooney” by the English press tasked with covering this tale – has signed a scholarship deal with Chavski and a professional deal of thousands per week with the stench of petroleum and a hint of criminality following next year.
The player who has never played a competitive game for Celtic is now being treated like he drowns puppies and likes listening to jazz. But worst of all is being compared to Liam Miller.
We all know the story. The lads family were going to be deported when Tommy Burns and the club stepped in to stop this happening. Seemingly this meant that he would stay at the club in gratitude.
In La La Land maybe that would happen.
The simples are this. If we thought he would stay I’m sure a professional contract would be winging it’s way that could match or better Chavski’s offer. It hasn’t happened.
Those in the know say the kid was always going to be too good for Scotland. How anyone can predict that before the temptations of adulthood rear their head should really be in a funfair reading tarot cards for 2 quid.
They say that he is already a Billy Big Time. Who wouldn’t be at 15 years old being kidnapped by Man Citee while playing with Scotland schools, getting courted by Chavski and being sniffed by Manure? He had an agent to help him with his homework.
If the lad who has contributed nothing to my football club wants to leave then forgive me for shrugging my shoulders and going meh. Liam Miller gave me a taste of his talent and his deception hurt because of that. Feruz hasn’t gave me a taste of anything.
I’m sure Tommy would wish him well. I just don’t wish him any harm.
