Ryan Jack is a bubbling, whining child. He and the rest of the Ibrox players who think that our footballers are guilty of “disrespecting” theirs should ask themselves; what have they done to deserve respect?
Jack is whinging because Giakoumakis is confident and says so. Jack comes from a generation that thinks Timmy should be seen and not heard, the mentality John Reid described as “wanting to keep us at the back of the bus.”
Well, those days are well and truly over, and it seems some of them can’t hack it.
The big Greek said that we’re “obviously” the better team. I think handing them a 3-0 going on 10-0 skelping at Celtic Park, and being currently top of the table, demonstrates that quite adequately. At this moment in time, only a moron would doubt it.
To moan about it … it just looks bad. It looks pitiful.
It also requires breath-taking arrogance and hypocrisy.
After all, how many times this season, after they’ve dropped points, have they come out and basically told the media “we should be beating teams like that” or words to that effect? I’ve long thought that they were the most disrespectful club in the league.
And on a day when social media is dominated by their “official media partners” throwing smears and insults at Celtic, they have some brass neck to even mention respect at all. Their club doesn’t even respect a signed commercial contract.
Honestly, that club is so self-entitled and arrogant that it blows your mind at times. Imagine having a moan to the media because a team that had just beaten you 3-0 didn’t pay tribute to you? Imagine going crying over some hurtful remarks from a player who is confident that his team is better than yours? This is part and parcel of the game.
But it feeds into the idea that you are not allowed to say or do anything that offends Ibrox, even a little.
It starts the wailing and the howling at the moon.
