There is nothing worse when you’re in the midst of a debate or argument over something and some clown sticks their ignorant two-bobs worth into the discussion, unbidden and unwanted.
When that person’s intervention is so obviously designed to needle both sides it is especially annoying and where I’m from could get you a punch in the mouth.
Charlie Adam has tonight offered his “opinion” on the coming Celtic fan protests.
Which nobody asked him for. Which nobody needs. Which nobody wants.
His own fat mouth should stay shut on any subject involving Celtic fans and their relationship with the club.
Nobody needs to hear to snarking views of another ex-Ibrox idiot where the Bernie Higgins matter is concerned.
Even if he understands the issues – and it’s clear from his comments that he does not; he thinks that those engaged in the campaign are interested in getting publicity for it when the only people they care about sending the message to will all already be inside Celtic Park – he should keep his nose out of it.
His suggestion that the protests should be saved for our coming cup final are just shit-stirring.
Because that would suit him and other people, for our supporters to turn up for that big occasion and not offer support at all. He is just dumb enough to think we are dumb enough not to understand that. More and more, these people reflect their stupidity onto the rest of us and then act surprised when we’re not quite as daft as that.
Adam is one of those ex-Ibrox players who the media seems to leave, completely oblivious, it seems to me, at the way they drag down the whole level of discourse around football in this country.
This is an idiot with a room temperature IQ so asking him about anything outside of his daily routine is a stretch. Yet he seems to have the freedom to pontificate on any number of subjects, and more and more those subjects involve Celtic.
In this case, as in so many others, his contribution only serves to remind us what a joker we’re dealing with and what a scandalously poor media we have that they think we want to hear this kind of thing.
