Kris Boyd’s Crass Johnsonian Non Apology Treats Celtic, And Our Fans, As If We Were Mugs.

Image for Kris Boyd’s Crass Johnsonian Non Apology Treats Celtic, And Our Fans, As If We Were Mugs.

The last month in politics has been characterised by our Prime Minister taking the public for absolute fools.

First it was that there were no parties.

Then he didn’t know it was a party, he thought it was a work event.

Then if it was a party it was a party within the rules, although the rules didn’t allow for parties.

One idiotic MP lickspittle said that at one event he was “ambushed with a cake.”

And over and over again we were told to wait for an inquiry to tell him whether he’d had a party in his own house and garden and now we’re reduced to waiting for the cops to do it.

At every stage there has been a smirking performance which doesn’t disguise that he thinks every single one of us is an absolute mug.

And along the way, there have been some non-apologies too, so cynical that you marvel at them.

Dominic Cummings is not surprised.

He’s seen this guy up close and for long enough to draw the only conclusion that anybody who knows anything about this stuff can reach; that Johnson’s inability to follow societal norms, to tell the truth or to accept the consequences for the things he does is the mark of a sociopath. I’m amazed it took him this long to get there.

So in light of that, what are we to make of Kris Boyd tonight, and his own sneering non-apology?

What else but that he too thinks the rest of us are mugs, that he views us with contempt but also that he’s been slapped and knows he has to backtrack a bit?

In short, it’s Johnsonian in its contempt, but also in its cowardice.

It reads thus;

“My Old Firm column in today’s Scottish Sun appears to have irked some Celtic supporters. Therefore I think it’s right that I add some context and clarification to a reference I made about Callum McGregor. I wrote: “The fact he managed to get through the 90 minutes without anyone testing out that face mask is another story, but his commitment to the team was tremendous.” Some have taken that line to mean I wanted one of the Rangers players to intentionally try and hurt the midfielder. However, that is absolutely and unequivocally NOT the case. It was simply meant as a criticism of the Rangers players for their failure to get close to McGregor.”

First, it wasn’t just “some Celtic supporters” he “irked.”

His comments were disgusting and infuriated a fan-base which has developed a high tolerance threshold for his cretinous delinquent behaviour. And it did more; it appalled Celtic as a club.

And I suspect that’s the only reason he has “clarified” it tonight … in a manner which itself is utterly abysmal.

Where was the apology to Callum McGregor? There wasn’t one.

He isn’t really apologising to anybody; it’s Johnson again, with all his “I didn’t intend to cause offence” schtick, the kind of excuse that didn’t wash when he lied in a column and was sacked, when he lied to Michael Howard and was fired or any of the numerous occasions when he’s lied to former wives or girlfriends about his private behaviour.

But he thinks the rest of us are daft enough to believe him.

That’s who Boyd is like tonight, the desperate excuse for a human being clinging to power by his fingernails.

His explanation for his words are preposterous, right up there with Johnson’s recent insults.

This is his “I didn’t know it was a party” moment.

What he wrote is perfectly plain and his latest “update” wasn’t an attempt to clarify but an attempt to obfuscate. Boyd is thick. But he isn’t so thick that the connotations of what he wrote aren’t crystal clear. There are times when what he writes is virtually unintelligble rubbish, but this was not one of those times.

His effort to handwaive this away makes him look even more like an amoral bastard without a shred of shame.

If this is his “apology” he can shove it up his gearbox.

And Celtic should not accept it, and the rag he writes for should not think that this puny man and his pitiful “clarification” has shut down this affair. He is a disgrace and disgrace will continue to follow around anyone who backs him over this.

    A pitiful excuse for what he hinted at…
    Does he think we are mugs?
    Ban him now Celtic

  • Gordon Ashley says:

    Can’t stand the pr*ck.. but at the end of the day he has said exactly what I knew he would.. and what you should have known he would.. you cannot prove that that is what he meant, and anybody with half a brain can see that.

    • Gordon Ashley says:

      It’s like when he referred to John Kennedy as big jk, we all know what he meant but you can’t prove it.. writing columns like this just plays into his hands by giving him the attention he wants then watching him get away with it

  • Darren James Kerr says:

    A filthy, lying, nasty piece of work. Both him and his statement. The Bhoys should run through brick walls to win this league and close Mordor and Boyds mouth down once and for all.

  • Garry Cowan says:

    I genuinely hope rangers implode so I can watch the baldy bawbbag squirm like the snake that he is

  • Bill Kirk says:

    I personally don’t think he actually wrote that piece, the woeful attempt at an explanatio( by no means an apology). That was written by someone. who has a much better grasp of the English language than that cretin.

  • Roonsa says:

    What Boyd says on the matter from now on is an irrelevance. It doesn’t matter if he apologises, half apologises, tries to cover his tracks (which is what he opted for) or tells us to GTF (which is what I’d have done if I was him – in for a penny, in for a fucking pound).

    His comments don’t need explaining. He said what he meant to say and he meant what he said.

    Celtic have said they are addressing the issue. It’s up-to Celtic now to show that they mean busines. The more this gobshite is allowed to talk shite about our team unhindered is an embarrassment to Celtic FC and all the fans of Celtic.

    If this cunt doesn’t have his wings clipped the fans of Celtic FC should be asking them why.

    Fucking arsehole that he is.

    Krass Boyd has not just overstepped the mark with his “test the mask” piece ,he has jumped in a Ferrari and carrered right past it .

    Why pick out McGregor, why not Hatate or O’riley or Taylor or Starfelt .
    No ,he choose mcgregor because he had two broken bones in his face ,protected by a mask ,to allow him to do his job of work .

    Why ask why no sevco player tested that mask
    Football is a contact sport but the face has never been a legal part of the body wer contact is allowed .
    So in essence Krass Boyd is specifically questioning, why no player illegally made contact with McGregor ‘a face with the sole intent of exasperating an already painful injury .

    He should not be given a platform in print or on media to express his horrible and dangerous views .

    IMO this is no longer about Krass Boyd
    But about those who give home the platform to air such vile views by employing him .

      James. This piece is disappointing and totally out of context. Using what Boris Johnson did over the Convid plandemic as an analogy to Kriss Boyds brainless and thuggish comments is just not on. People didn’t get to say goodbye to loved ones, people lost jobs and businesses, mental health issues and suicides have gone through the roof and all the while Johnson was having Tea and champagne parties while trying to keep people terrified and shuttered in their homes.

      Boyd did nothing more than what we expect the likes of him to do. So the level of outrage is totally incomparable and your piece is as I say totally out of context! !

  • paul McCann says:

    boyd had his nose and chins put out of joint as reo hatate has passed his goals tally in 45 minutes and liel abada equelled his tally against us and let us hope that we carry on winning till we win the league

  • Joseph says:

    What a bigot this pathetic excuse for a man is,tried so hard to hide how hurt he felt watching his team being dismantled,loved how James McFadden was the one who had the smirk on his face,Boyd shouldn’t be on telly,hail hail.?

  • Kyogos Dream Team says:

    Get the Fat Cunt ‘Leathered’ see whoze Fukin SMIRKING THEN LOL! Al gladly take the job WHAHAHAHAHA!!

  • Roonsa says:

    Forget Boyd’s stupidity for 2 minutes and consider what van Bronkhurst actually said about Wednesday’s match.

    “We knew Celtic were going to push hard for the early goal. The first 20-25 minutes, there was a storm. Then we took over.”

    I have a good feeling about this guy being sevco manager.

  • Smokey says:

    Boyd offered no apology and that says it all
    A ban and nothing else

  • scouse bhoy says:

    businesses also lost out in 2012 when oldco went bust. the biggest one being hmrc which funds the nhs. glasgow council edinburgh council and renfrew council also owed money by oldco which brings us back to the same club nonsense which the likes of boyd and the rest of the gutless media need reminding of when 55 and 150 get mentioned. they have just become sevco fanzines to the shame of journalism.

    ‘I am sorry if you feel that…’ is one that is commonly used instead of ‘I am sorry that I did that.’
