When you mention the names, it is like a cast of characters right out of Celtic Haters Central Casting.
Over the years it has had them all; Johnstone, Dalziel, Ferguson, Broadfoot, King, Guidi, Keevins and Rae. There are more, many, many more.
The weekend just past was hilariously stinking, with Rae and Keevins both unloading on the club in a way that was deranged. Not satisfied with that, Keevins was at it again last night talking about how Ibrox had the “firepower” and Celtic don’t.
On the back of what? One match?
Has senility finally set in over there or has he missed that we have scored a goal more than Ibrox in the league?
Has he missed the fact that is only close because one game has skewed the data towards the club over there?
Of course Keevins hasn’t missed that fact, he’s stupid but he’s not that stupid.
At worst you could argue that both sides are equally capable of scoring plenty of goals but that Celtic’s defence has proved that it’s better than theirs (which it has) … but of course he’s not going to make that case because his whole reason for living is to criticise us.
Keevins is simply doing what he does best here, using his modest forum from which to spew poison in our general direction and it doesn’t matter if its grounded in reality or not. That has never made much difference to people like him.
The presence on that show of so many Celtic haters, like Rae, like those others going back years, continues to reveal that show for all it is, an unofficial PR repository for anti-Celtic stories and pro-Ibrox spin. There is no other way to look at it.
Facts don’t matter to that cast of clowns.
Stats are only convenient when they support whatever idiotic narrative is being pushed on a given night, otherwise they are completely ignored.
Celtic gets no benefit of the doubt any more than Ibrox gets proper scrutiny.
It’s a radio show populated by clowns.
On the few occasions I listen to it I can actually feel my blood pressure rising and IQ points being deleted from my brain. I can only handle exposure to it once or twice a year or I’d wind up in Hidden Hills eating soup with a plastic spoon.
It’s not just that it’s anti-Celtic, the whole thing is pitched at the level of a guy sitting in a classroom corner wearing a D cap on his head. Even the worst drunk in the worst pub has a broader range of football knowledge that their smartest panellist.
I cannot imagine that many Celtic supporters still listen to it.
I certainly cannot understand the thinking of any who do.
