In the ongoing catastrophe that is Harry Redknapps tax case involving him opening an offshore account in his dogs name, it has been further revealed that a well known SPL club has also suspectedly been caught in a copycat conundrum of the sky sporks news forever present, Bo-selecta faced, Spurs gaffer.
It has been sensationally revealed that Rangers Football Club may have opened offshore accounts in the dogs names: – Lassie, Shep, Beethoven, Sultan, Gnasher, Bolt and Scooby Doo. This proves not only is Ally McMoist (with fries) barking mad, so is their accountancy division.
Not they have an accountancy division and if they did it would probably look like the mad hatters tea party crossed with some sort of a fight scene from middle earth. Craig Whyte believes his solicitors have the pedigree (chum) to give a good defence, in that case I ponder the thought why they are not the starting backline for the gers and they are that thin on the ground that it is beyond dis-belief that Ally has not drafted them in.
Meanwhile in the ever assertive world of football the press has been turning the screw on a un-inventive tale of James Forrest being touted to Spurs. Harry Redknapp did not say much on the case but I believe he did state he thought “James Forrest was a wee tiny chihuahua who could have opened another offshore account” for him.
In no way is Jamesy going to Spurs to sit on the bench behind Aaron Lennon and co and never get a game. He wants to stay at Celtic, he has Celtic in his soul and I believe if he does leave to another club it will not be for many a year yet. I have mucho respecto for the little lad who loves playing his footy for us and I hope he goes on and gets better and better as the season unfolds.
In the terms of bolstering our front line, such names as Yann Kermorgant, Jason Roberts and Ricardo Fuller have been mentioned but one name in particular gave me food for thought.
Spanish ‘bigman’ Jorge Molina currently at Real Betis has been linked with our club. The 29 year old striker stands at 6ft 2″ tall and can push his weight about if needed, and it is needed for us. We need an extra dimension to our play and when Hoops, Stokes and Sammy are knackered or the latter being in one of his “Cant be ar$ed” moods he could definitely give us another edge to our play.
Molina is a goalscorer, I will be honest he is not exactly prolific but can be more than capable of hitting the net when its needed. At 29 he may look to move abroad and try out another style or essence of a different footballing culture, he certainly fit the bill.
Here is a video of him in action scoring against Barcelona:-
In another news bite, the type that hacks bite hands off for is the consistant touting by the press of Gary Hooper to clubs. Will these presshogs never learn, as soon as one bit of gossip is knocked down on one of our players they move onto the player on the next rung of the Celtic ladder. Again Gary Hooper is here for the cause and will not be going anywhere, he knows he is loved by the club, has a great standing position at the club, Lenny loves the bhoy and so do most of us in bucket loads.
I believe he has the potential to be a world beater and dare I say it looking towards a Larsson-esque goalscoring talented man he could become if he stayed with us and I believe he will. Lennon was right saying if Andy Carroll is worth £25 million so is Hooper. Hooper is a battler and a goalscorer, fights thick and thin and gives his all.
I cannot remember one match where I said to myself “Hooper looked lazy out on the pitch today”, that is an honesty he gives us out on the pitch and with 88 on his back, goals in the net and a partner in Stokes, Sammy, Bangura or otherwise we will be looking at a prospective silverware windfall coming our way.
It is also a delight to say that we welcome new Bhoy on the block, Rabiu Ibrahim to our squad list. He has been given a work permit and hopefully on the news given to us by Lenny, he will be definitely one to watch in our ranks. He should, like Bangura, be knocking on the door of the starting line-up and a 3 and a half year contract states that he is here with us for a long while yet.
