Congratulations to The Record for the feat of having their gutter version of journalism featured in the first two articles of the day.
This one is about how Scotland’s most classless sports department always seems to find somebody on the brink of a European game, hailing from the homeland of our opponents, who’ll tell us why we’ll get beat.
They really had to reach for this one, and they did Csaba Laszlo, who they routinely and mercilessly mocked when he was a manager in Scotland (twice, with Hearts and Dundee Utd) and who now, apparently, is a font of all footballing knowledge and wisdom.
And what wisdom does he have to impart?
Why, that Celtic is a shambles without a sporting director although the off-field issues are nothing to do with how we are progressing on the park, and Ange doesn’t know European football as well as he should.
The Record is a pathetic rag for constantly doing this, and the no-marks they bring to the fore for these sorts of pieces make them look doubly ridiculous.
Laszlo is still in management; at his current club his win ratio is a mere 15% so we’re not even meant to take him seriously any more than the press did when he was managing in this country.
But it’s a shining example of what they do; bitchy little attacks on Celtic from whatever angle they can come up with.
It would be infuriating if we hadn’t seen it time and time again, but we have of course and no doubt we will again in the future.
Just win today Celtic, just win. It’s the best way to shut these cretins up.
