A couple of weeks ago, a dire Scottish hack tried to drum up a phony controversy over Kyogo where he suggested that he might be a dirty player.
I thought it was like a bad joke. But more recently, the view is being pushed that he is a cheat.
Today that has been turned up to nine by the bonkers forums of our rivals, the places where they believe that Brexit was a good idea, Trump a good president and Dave King unfairly maligned and a man of probity and honour.
In other words, the lunatic ward.
They are claiming that he dives. That he feigns injury. That he goes down too easily.
They are also comparing the “easy ride” he gets from the media – and from refs – with the odium poured onto the Colombian ned.
They have got to be joking.
There is no similarity between the two at all. Morelos has been sent off more times than a Danbury Trasher. The number of times he should have been sent off but was the recipient of our “understanding” referees is even higher.
This is when you know these people are howling at the moon; not even the idea that Kyogo is some sort of cheat but this suggestion that there is something suspicious about he and Mad Dog being treated in different ways.
Maybe that’s because there are differences in their behaviour?
Don’t try and debate this people with logic though.
Kyogo really does have them terrified, doesn’t he?
The fear is just bursting out of them when it comes to this guy.
They will cling to anything they can find to disparage him, and now this effort to paint him as some kind of undesirable in the hope that … what?
That it will rub off on the media?
For sure, idiots like Kris Boyd are already all over. He turned his pea-shooter on Jota yesterday and oh how we laughed. He can take his best shot at Kyogo.
Are they hoping it will spark an SFA inquiry?
Ha! Good luck with that.
When it comes back “no case to answer” they can create another conspiracy theory out of it.
These people have a wee planet of their own, don’t they?
When you think you’ve seen every ridiculous thing from them they find a way to surprise you.
Kyogo is the most lethal footballer in this country right now … and they cannot believe that such a phenomenal talent has wound up at Celtic.
And you know what? I think the best of him is still to come.
