Alex Rae; you’ve got to love this guy.

He is Clyde’s key “asset.”

There must be people who tune into their show whenever he’s on just to laugh at whatever gaffe he’s going to make on a given night; certainly, there are few other reasons to care about his view.

Last week, as we all know, he got himself into a bit of a state when he suggested that no player is truly versatile and that he has one position. Just moments later, he praised Ibrox’s new signing for his versatility.

The original point was, of course, about Celtic’s new bhoy Hatate.

Rae did what he does; he hit out at Celtic, without even giving it a second’s thought; he actually knew he was going to get asked about the new boy at Ibrox right after it … and he did this anyway.

Now, a lot of us commented on it at the time, but there was an interesting update to this story last night, as highlighted by the site Born Celtic.

A caller to the show the other night took him to task on it, and Rae decided to go on a wee rant about the Celtic fan media and Celtic social media as a whole, referring to “individuals sitting there playing with their wee moose” – that’s how he put it, I won’t tidy it up for him.

And then he flatly denied that he ever did such a thing, implying that it was doctored.

Sadly, for him, many of us have the audio recording close to hand, and Born Celtic – which was one of the sites which ran the original story – was especially pleased to republish it just for the occasion.

Which is kind of hilarious.

Does Rae not understand how this stuff works?

Did he really think that he was going to get away with that?

Apparently so.

Either that or he’s so loaded down with his own bias that things come out of his mouth reflexively which he can’t even recall later on.

But that’s what the bloggers do best; we remind these people, constantly, they can’t get away with this kind of crap any longer, that they are accountable for the words they say and write, that when they let bias cloud their judgement, we’ll remind them of how bad that makes said judgement.

And his initial comments were already a whopper of an error, compounded by his pitiful attempt to suggest that they were spun or manufactured when most of us have them saved.

You couldn’t even make this stuff up.

Well done to Born Celtic on their article.

As for Alex Rae, dear oh dear … what a mess to get into.

    Wee beaver face should maybe stick to chewing logs.

  • Robert Jenkins says:

    No player is Versatile? Firstly, let’s talk about Paul Madely of Leeds United. Revie called him a Rolls Royce who played in all 10 outfield positions.

    If that’s not enough, what about the 1974 Netherlands team when all 10 players played in all 10 positions. Including a Celtic manager who stopped Rangers getting 10 in a row.

    Aw c’mon James, the moron, sorry, man, has the memory of a goldfish, in fact, I’m willing to wager that he doesn’t even have the fabled 4/5 second memory of those wee gold fish.

    Great stuff, tyvm

    the media organisations who give the likes of him a platform are the ones who need to be held to account.

  • Johnny mcglinchey says:

  • John Taylor says:

    At the start of your article you said Alex Rae was a radio clyde asset personally I would remove the et from asset for a more accurate description.

  • JohnPaul O'Donnell says:

    Forget all your recordings, I just listened to it, His comments are saved on radio Clyde app, so either he is a moron who lets his employer stitch him up by doctoring his comments or a moron who lies knowing he will be found out, either way he is moron

  • SSMPM says:

    I read your articles on this with interest and I agree you definitely did not say the huns were fascists.
    I mean that would require them to have infiltrated the country’s tv, newspapers, radio, sporting authorities, legal institutions, governing bodies, police, etc, etc, and parade bile hatred at religious minorities, immigrants, etc, in triumphant racist fuelled marches through its cities drinking, singing and smashing as they go. Gute Nacht Herr Rae. HH (oops)

  • Rtc says:

    Why didn’t you play his recording ? After criticising the clown… I was looking forward to listening to his drivel again…

    • brian o doherty says:

      So much out of his depth working in sports media circles. Imagine he was a barman in your local pub? You would cut ties with your local and move to another pub!! Maybe even drink at home ensuring you dont see that horrible ba?, -. Ds coupon again.

  • brian o doherty says:

    Ballon of the highest order. His coupon makes me cringe. Never a genuine smile or even a decent word for any other club apart from sevco.
