The Record’s latest fantasy is that Joe Aribo is in the running for the Player of the Year award.
What a joke that is.
There are three outstanding candidates at the moment and every one of them is in a Celtic shirt. If you expanded the possibles list to another couple of players you could get Cameron Carter Vickers in there as well, and still Aribo wouldn’t be.
Ralston, Kyogo and Jota are so far ahead of the rest that it’s embarrassing to even talk about other candidates.
To be frank, if a Celtic player doesn’t skoosh this then the system is broken.
The only risk to us is if the three leading man cancel each other out.
Even then, I can’t see past one of them winning it and right now it would be Jota by a country mile. But the pro-Ibrox press needs to indulge its little dream scenario and promote one of their own, especially as the club really needs a marquee sale.
Jota is so clearly the best player in the country that the discussion isn’t worth having.
The revelation has been Kyogo and Ralston is the most improved player in Scotland by some considerable distance.
If it wasn’t for the two new signings nobody would be talking about anything else but his leap to the front of the queue.
It’s probably the most impressive leap in quality I’ve seen from a player since Martin O’Neill transformed Didier Agathe and Bobby Petta into players who could compete on the big stage of Europe.
It’s a minor miracle.
All season long so far the media has fumbled for its player to contend with these guys.
They’ve gone through Kent, Hagi, Sakala, Goldson (hilarious), Tavernier (preposterous), Patterson (anonymous) and now the Record at least has settled on this geezer.
And none of them can touch the Parkhead trio, and they know it.
